Marvel Also Drops Their Price Point to $2.99
In a change that was totally planned out and has nothing at all to do with DC‘s slightly previously announced decision, Marvel Comics are also dropping the price of a regular-sized monthly comic to three bucks starting in January. According to Senior VP of Sales and Circulation David Gabriel, Marvel can afford to do this because of the success of their digital comics initiatives.
But don’t get too excited yet, though:
Gabriel confirmed that “selected” Marvel titles — including new titles — would be priced at $2.99.
That means that the stuff you’re reading now may or may not get cheaper, and only stuff that debuts in 2011 and later will start with the new pricepoint. However, unlike DC, Marvel will not be cutting the page count on their cheaper titles.
