$19.99 – A New Price Point For Marvel Trade Paperpacks?

downloadAs the pressure on the $3.99 price point at Marvel seems to be building, the trade paperbacks pricing seems to have slipped.

Retailers have been informed that three general series books priced at different amounts, $15.99, $16.99 and $17.99 have all been raised to $19.99. Could this be a new standard price point for a standard Marvel series trade paperback of a certain size?

THOR GOD OF THUNDER TP VOL 03 ACCURSED will now be $19.99, not the previously solicited $16.99.

ULT COMICS SPIDER-MAN BY BENDIS TP VOL 05 will be $19.99, not the previously solicited $17.99.

AVENGERS TP VOL 04 INFINITY will now be $19.99, not the previously solicited $15.99.

Of course, places like Amazon will have to guarantee their prices

Inflation in the US is currently 2.07%.
