from Bleeding Cool (03/20/21)

DC Comics had, of late, seemingly settled on a number of pricing points. $3.99 as a 32-page comic book which actually has 20 comic book story pages in it. $4.99 gets a 40-page comic but that will bring you around 30 story pages. And a card-stock cover adds another dollar onto the top of that.

With Infinite Frontier, DC Comics launched and reformatted a number of their comics with increased page counts. Batman #106 and Joker #1 had comics with 22-page lead stories and an 8-page back-up strip, 30 story pages and a $4.99 price point.

However, it appears that prices are going up without a corresponding increase in page count. Solicitations for Batman #109 for June, and for The Joker #3 and #4, are now $5.99 for the same 40-page comic. No decrease in price for the non-card-stock covers.

Also joining the $5.99-for-40-pages price point in May is Superman Red & Blue with #3 (previously 48 pages for $5.99), and in June, Wonder Woman: Black White And Gold #1.

And with the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1-6 priced at $4.99 for 32 pages from April, could there be more price rises to come?

I am seriously considering it but I still love the feel of holding a book in my hands.

I can understand that.  I was the same way for a long time and still prefer the touch and feel of a good comic.  But improvement in the digital readers and the sheer cost savings made me finally switch.
