Comics are getting cheaper?

Well you could have knocked me over with a feather when I read this today.

Both DC and Marvel Comics announced Thursday that they will be slashing price points from $3.99 to $2.99 on huge proportions of their publishing catalogs.


I've been collecting comics for about 23 years now and this is the first time any of the major publishers have actually cut prices. Now it's not all sunshine and lollipops, both DC and Marvel are expected to cut the amount of story pages for each comic from 22 to 20 and they're still going to gouge you on one shots or "prestige" books with extra shiny covers. Still, when most books went from 2.99 to 3.99 almost overnight I started to cut back big time. On any give month I still buy somewhere between 20 and 25 comics. Do the math and you'll see its a difference of about 25 dollars a month. That's a lot of Diapers and forumla...

Actually that's not a lot of diapers and formula. I swear, this kid is costing me a fortune. Maybe if DC and Marvel keep dropping prices I'll just diaper him with whatever Judd Winick is writing.
