A couple of notes, a few amends twixt solicitation and publication for Marvel Comics. Those that they'll admit to before the comic ships, that is. War Of The Realms #2 was solicited at a $4.99 40-page title. Well, it's still $4.99 but now it's a 32-page title. Which usually means 20 pages of story. Will that price come down at all?
While Avengers #19, solicited as a 40-page title, was listed at $7.99. And now $3.99. Still 40 pages, will that come down at all?
And War Of The Realms: Punisher #1, solicited as a T+ title, has been regraded Parental Advisory, the only War Of The Realms tie-in title to do so. A rarity for such a crossover book, joining the other Punisher, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Thanos and X-Force titles and the like.
Oh and Marvel Comics Presents #4 has added Pere Perez to the previously solicited artist Paolo Siqueira on the issue in question, as well as Benjamin Percy and Juan Ferreyra on the Moon Knight story.
