According to IGN, DC Comics will be raising the prices of several monthly titles starting in April. The comics going from $2.99 to $3.99 an issue will be: All-Star Batman, Batgirl, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, Batman Beyond, Batwoman, Blue Beetle, Cyborg, The Hellblazer, New Super-Man, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Super Sons, Supergirl, Superwoman, Teen Titans, Titans, and Trinity.
One of the reasons why I left DC from 2011-2015, and currently barely buy any Marvel comics, is because of the standard $3.99 price an issue. With DC Rebirth, all of their comics were available for $2.99.
But now, DC is starting to head back towards the industry trend of making comics too expensive to be a continuing monthly habit. To put into perspective, it costs more for one single issue of a comic book then it does for a monthly membership to this site. Does the comic book industry want to continue going the way of wrestling by pushing its fans away?
So sorry All-Star Batman, Supergirl, Batgirl & The Birds of Prey, Superwoman, Titans, and Trinity. Starting in April, I will no longer be reading. Don’t blame the creators. Blame DC.
