    Prices is but one factor. The other is the limited distribution channels. There is a reason why DC's Zoom and Ink lines aren't in the floppy form factor and distribution format.

    Single issues will always be around because they are cheaper and provide a faster return on investment, but there will likely be a change to the current status quo where companies are using the same comic for multiple revenue streams (IE- digital, Trade Paperback, single issues.)

    It's likely that many titles won't be released in single issue formats. But some stuff will.

    This is why when I want to read comics I just subscribe to Marvel Unlimited for less than $10 a month.

    I still have most of my older comics (mainly because I still use artists like Rick Leonardi, Arthur Adams, and Travis Charest as artistic references) but I don't really see the point of buying new ones when I can read almost infinitely more comics online for a lot less money.

    On the one hand I feel bad for not supporting the newer titles when they first come out, but on the other hand I know I'd do so if the price was right.

    Kind of noticed more $4.99 Marvel titles lately as well, like you said, new number 1s and mini series, but if they decide to basically go five bucks across the board I'll definitely have to consider waiting for the tpbs.
