    Default DC Rebirth monthlies back at $3.99 in April

    From the early DC solicits monthlies are back at $3.99, while bimonthly are staying at $2.99 (or $5.98 considering how you approach it) for now.

    Guess I'll drop New Super-Man. It won't survive at that pricepoint anyway.

    I don't mind it since the price increase only applies to monthlies. I mean did anyone really believe that the prices were gonna stay that low? Something has to give and businesses have to make money only a matter of time before the weeklies go up. Rebirth has been so good that I don't even mind.

    I guess it's the only way to beat out Marvel for the month.

    I really hope this doesn't have a negative effect on sales. Especially since Titans and Trinity, 2 of my favorite Rebirth books, are monthly.

    This is gonna lead to me dropping most, if not all, of the 3.99 books. Then I will be sore about it and will end up dropping some of the twice-monthly books, too, I just know it.

    Bummer.

    Books struggling are going to take a hit for sure. Monthly comics are just too expensive. They need to sell digital subscriptions at a reasonable price. If I continued to follow all the books I liked at full price I'd go broke. The answer isn't raise the price on stuff already selling lower numbers. It's gonna look great when they cancel Cyborg before his movie comes out.

    Well guess I'm dropping anything that is going monthly. I like the price point and the bi monthly schedule, I think its the way all comics should go honestly.

    I'm not surprised by this move. It was only a matter of time but considering the double shipped books are still going to be $2.99 I'm okay with it. I don't plan on dropping any of my monthly books at this point because I've been enjoying them enough to continue paying for them at $3.99. I pay that much for my YA and HB books as well as the ones from Valiant so its not really a deal breaker for me.
