I'm in the camp that has stopped buying these non continuity side issues. They were fine and dandy to fill the months waiting for JMS to do something, but now that Thor is on time, I don't have the will or way to get all of these titles. In many cases I'm almost afraid to read these new titles b/c I'm worried they'll be better than the main Thor book. If there was some way to combine efforts and have Thor + a back pages storyline like Tales of Asgard(?) used to be then it would make Thor's title even more valuable to buy if not worth the price for some extra page count.

Howdy Malekith! \:\-\)

I like the idea of paying more for more content.

If we assume the new 20 page standard, at $2.99 is coming into effect soon then I'd probably be willing to tolerate a $3.99 price point with maybe a 6 page extra feature 'a la' Tales of Asgard.

I really don't like having multiple mini-series shoved down my throat, which is why I'll wait for the trades and check out reviews/opinions before I buy.

But an in-continuity side-story could be an interesting way for Marvel to sell these stories - though I wonder in this decompressed age if Marvel know any writers who can actually tell a story in 6 pages...?

I think they tried something like this with the Incredible Hulk a few months back which alternated between this Hiro-Kala business and She-Hulks, but I just couldn't warm to either set of characters.
