Saw this over at Bleeding Cool and I ... most of the people at the Realm and everyone I know of outside of comic shops ... have been saying something similar for years. It also touches on a very similar story I had with a kid I knew growing up and I damn sure hope I helped him, at least a little. Yeah, it brought back some memories so I decided to post the article. Make sure you read the responses at the end as well.

I didn't have time to read through all of the comments but this article and the comments I did read we're all spot on.

Especially poignant is the analysis of the inflationary cost compared to other staples over the past 30 years.  It's amazing to think about how the price of a DVD is basically $20 both now and way back then.  But comics have gone up 1,000%.  That can't be sustainable.

Great article!
