Scott Snyder Looks To Reduce Price Of $4.99 Batman Monthly From DC Comics

Yesterday, we told you that the Batman monthly was moving to a $4.99 price point, with DC Comics telling retailers that it would jump to 30 pages. With Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo kicking off the new Endgame story next week, it would be the first ongoing monthly series at such a price point.


Well Scott Snyder has just tweeted

That would have been when Bleeding Cool posted the news of course… he continues.

It's also worth noting that on the same day, the comic Wytches launches from Image Comics, by Scott Snyder and Jock. The new series is priced at $2.99 for the first issue.


I've read an advance copy, I really enjoyed it, it's rather freaky and I want "Pledged means pledged" on a T-shirt.


Exactly. But counting the pages…  it also has thirty story pages, though a couple are more thematic mood pages – then three pages of backstory by Scott, telling his own story and giving us photo reference – and another three pages showing the art process on the comic.

Bot only that, from what I understand regarding sales on the launch issue, the creative team on Wytches will make more on that comic, than the creative team on Batman.

Sometimes makes you wonder where all the money goes. At least in this case, some of it might be going back into customers' pockets.
