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?


My monthly reading list is at an all time low.  Green Lantern is about the only monthly book I buy anymore.  I was getting Hercules but since it is crossing over with another marvel cross-over that I could care less about I have removed it from my list.
With the high prices and lack of enjoyment I have basically quit buying new books. 
I have been buying up back issues from the 1970's that I missed the first time around.  These books come at a better price and I am enjoying them so much more than today's books.
Also I am enjoying the Essential, Classic and Showcase Presents volumes.  A lot of good reading at a good price.
