I've dropped:
Dark Reign and associated minis
New Avengers
Fantastic Four
Astonishing X-Men
Uncanny X-Men
Amazing Spider-man
Iron Man
Captain America
All Ultimate titles
... and most mini-series.
Price didn't really enter in to the equation for any of these except the minis.  Generally the rationale to drop a title is because I don't like the direction the characters are going, or I don't like the creative team.

    I already posted this at the DCU MB.
    Here's an interesting article at Newsarama's blog:
    Reading through all the replies to the article, it's noticeable how much the price increase has influenced on so many readers to start being more selective in what they buy, and start dropping titles.
    In my own case, I always made sure to be careful as to spend too much on comics, so if I drop a title it's mostly based on how entertained I'm being by it, rather than how it costs. I preffer paying more for a title I enjoy rather than paying anything for a title I don't care for. But that's me. How about you?
