I already posted this at the DCU MB.
Here's an interesting article at Newsarama's blog: http://blog.newsarama.com/2009/04/24/line-by-line-trimming-the-pull-list/
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?


For me, mostly if it is not entertaining then I drop it. However, occasionally the price of a title does play a part in it unless I get something for my money. Unfortuately with the hikes on some books going to $3.99, it is a factor.

The books I have recently dropped ......

Thor - will be getting the HCs; don't like the pace and the hike
Dark Avengers - just plain stupid
Iron Man - getting the HCs
Black Panther - bored, left at the end of SI
Hulk - YUCK! left at #6
Uncanny X-Men - left at #504
