Back in January, Bleeding Cool reported that Marvel were to move a number of books to the DC price point of twenty pages for $2.99, and that it would start in May. But there would also be $2.99 books with more pages. A more of a dipping the toe in the water.
I was however assured on creator pay, saying "I'm told Marvel creators won't lose money on a reduced page count, as Marvel intend to increase twenty page books to thirteen issues or more a year if the creative team can manage it. And creators certainly won't have to rewrite an already accepted twenty-two page script into twenty pages – as has happened elsewhere…"
Yesterday, David Uzumeri revealed this to Comics Alliance's audience, with some hard statistical facts regarding which books have dropped in page count at that $2.99 price point.
