Tom Brevoort's response came from a query about what Marvel's response will be to the blockbuster announcement by DC that they will be lowering the prices on all their titles across the board.

Update: During Marvel's T&A panel, the pricing question came up. Marvel VP Tom Brevoort noted that, in addition to Marvel not launching newer books at the $3.99 price, it was looking at ways to consolidate or contract its line of titles. Brevoort specifically cited the abundance of upcoming Thor books, noting that they're noticing consumer confusion as people don't know what's important and not important. Brevoort noted that it might be possible, and better, to increase the shipping schedule of some titles (like Thor) instead of creating multiple side projects.

Hehe, the typical "milking the franchise" when a movie is nearing. The Thor fan in me enjoys it because there is no drought anymore, but I dislike it when they force Thor into everything or bring back everyone all at once, sacrificing the pacing quality (ex. Odin or Thunderstrike) just to make new readers jump the bandwagon.

Bottom-line, crank out Thor titles but maintain quality control. Don't do it, just for the movie's sake.
