DC comics has announced it is "Drawing the Line at $2.99" How cute a slogan. Observe:
may not be a good idea. I personally like my comics to stay cheap and have found I read $3.99 comics less and less due to just not having a bunch of cash to blow on 22 pages for almost 4 bucks. Will I miss the 2 pages? Yes, probably. Am I happier at my comics remaining cheaper, however? Yes, I am.
I still read much more Marvel titles than DC and don't know nearly as much of DC continuity, but this pleases me. The question now is if this will pay off for DC or if Marvel mixed-bag of $2.99 for some comics and $3.99 for bigger-name comics will work better. Personally, despite my love for Marvel I'm thinking DC is going to be doing better, that's just me though.
