$4.99 Vs. $3.99 Vs. $2.99 At Marvel In December

Howard_the_Duck_1_Lim_Gwenpool_VariantIn December there are ten titles from Marvel Comics priced at $4.99. Some are those are for overlong stories such as Secret Wars #9 and Totally Awesome Hulk #1 and an Annual of two.

But some are the standard size comic with a back-up strip included, such as Guardians Of Infinity, and Howard The Duck.

Everything else is $3.99, aside from some titles aimed at the younger kids, which maintain a $2.99 price point.

But it does suggest that if Marvel are to move form the $3.99 price point to the $4.99 that they will do it via the medium of back-up strips. Howard The Duck is now a regular $5 book with Gwenpool strips tucked in the back.

Can we expect to see this price point grow, until there are more and more $4.99 books with back-up strips?

And then, just as happened with the $3.99 books that used to have back up strips, those strips will begin to end…

It has happened before. Now, how long until $5.99?
