While I haven’t seen an official announcement of a company wide price change, those who have paid close attention to some of Image Comics recent announcements have seen the $2.99 cover price appear more than once. That trend continues in the Nick Spencer Morning Glories series which will see a cover price drop from $3.50 to $2.99 beginning in February.
“We wanted to thank the dedicated fans of MORNING GLORIES for all their support. We wouldn’t be able to drop the price of the comic if they hadn’t embraced the series so whole-heartedly. So, thank you, and stay tuned for more twists as the Glories take on the Academy!” said Jim Valentino, Shadowline Publisher.
A quick look at the Image Comics solicitations for February breakdowns as follows:
- $2.99 – 18 issues
- $3.50 – 8 issues
- $3.99 – 4 issues
Regardless if this is temporary or a permanent trend for all publishers, it’s good news for comic book readers.
