    Looks like Whedon's run was the one with big drops once you get past its variant-boosted first arc.
    issue by issue Astonishing x-men used to have higher sales on 110k and 120k rage

    while new x-men was usually 105k below

    You have to take inflation into account. $1.25 in the early ‘80s is going to be something like $3.50 today.

    This was a double issue. Late ‘80’s. I think 1988.

    1986, lol - it says so on the cover, it's an annual! Normal issues would say the month but not the year.

    But that comic would cost $4.99 today. It isn't just inflation.

    Oops on year. Thanks for clarifying what was already there.

    Agree on inflation comment with the caveat that not all prices inflate at the same rate/time and paper is a product that has increased more than inflation as a whole during that time gap.

    It's not just the cost of paper. The cost of production is a factor. The print runs are smaller nowadays, and therefore it costs more to print each copy of a comic (same goes for most magazines and newspapers too).

    Yeah, August, if the wiki is right.
