Again, some DC titles are going up to 4 dollars

This Newsarama article begins by telling that DC's execs "clarify" their sales figures, but I can't seem to find any actual numbers of how many copies they sold.

However, what it does have to say is that, unsurprisingly, a couple of their books are once again going to go up to 4 dollars, and even 5:
- This year will see higher price points and page counts for Batman and Detective Comics. The comics will go from 32 pages each to 40 pages, and they'll sell at $3.99, joining DC's other $3.99 comics: Justice League, Action Comics, All-Star Western and Men of War.

- There's a "story reason" that Batman and Detective are adding pages, but that has yet to be announced.

- New "combo packs" (with both a print and digital version of the comic) are on the horizon for Green Lantern and Detective Comics, similar to those being offered for Justice League, Batman and Action Comics. The new Detective combo pack will be $4.99, while the new Green Lantern combo will be $3.99. Batman's combo pack will increase to $4.99.
Sounds like that relaunch isn't doing them enough business to keep the prices down. So again, all this will do is guarantee more people become discouraged from buying pamphlets that cost a lot more in total than a trade paperback does.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
