CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY: DC Knocks Off $3.99 Pricing
Pointing out the logic behind the move Dan DiDio, DC Comics Co-Publisher says the community made it clear $3.99 for 32 pages was "too expensive", leading to a reluctance to try new titles and the abandonment of others by long time fans.
To lighten the strain on fan's wallets, the recent back-up features will be moving to a new platform, but that is welcome change for a back-track that couldn’t have come soon enough.
DC titles affected include; American Vampire, Batman: The Dark Knight, Batman Incorporated, Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors, JSA All-Stars, Gears of War, God of War, Kane and Lynch, Ratchet and Clank, Action Comics, Adventure Comics, Batman: Streets of Gotham, Detective Comics, Doc Savage, Justice League of America, Legion of Super-Heroes, and The Spirit.
Marvel so far has only stated new books launching after January 2011 won’t debut at $3.99.
