chad writes, There’s an article over at Tor.com discussing Marvel\’s decision to bump comic prices to $3.99 (US dollars). Personally, I don’t see this as a big deal for those who regularly buy comics, and I doubt that comic books are “dying”. It’s not just Marvel. Though it is a significant proportional change coming up from $2.99US, those of us in Canada are still doing better than we used to due to the exchange rates. (I remember paying $4.75 Can for some titles with a $2.99 US cover price, for example.)
