New Marvel Series at $2.99 – The Exaggeration Report

Repost this article

It was reported many places that Marvel had announced that all their new launches would have $2.99 cover price, starting in January, during various NYCC panels.

Well… I’m looking at the January solicitations over at CBR and that sure isn’t what I’m seeing.

$3.99

  1. AGE OF X: ALPHA #1
  2. ORSON SCOTT CARD’S SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD #1 (of 5)
  3. ANITA BLAKE: CIRCUS OF THE DAMNED—THE INGENUE #1 (of 5)
  4. THE STAND: NO MAN’S LAND #1 (of 5)
  5. ULTIMATE COMICS CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 (of 4)
  6. DAREDEVIL: REBORN #1 (of 4)
  7. THE THANOS IMPERATIVE: DEVASTATION #1


$2.99

  1. CAPTAIN AMERICA: HAIL HYDRA #1 (of 5)
  2. WOLVERINE AND JUBILEE #1 (of 4)
  3. MAGNETO #1

So, 7 titles at $3.99 vs. 3 titles at $2.99.

3 of the $3.99 titles are literary licenses, the other 4 are native to Marvel.

How would Mark Twain put this?  “Our employees’ reports of price cuts were greatly exaggerated,” perhaps?
