    Get ready for the following ongoing titles to join Dark Avengers, Hulk, New Avengers & Thor in the $3.99 cover price in August 2009:

    - Ultimate Comics Avengers
    - Ultimate Comics Spider-Man
    - Uncanny X-Men
    - X-Men Forever
    - The Punisher: Frank Castle Max
    - Wolverine: Weapon X

    Plus 90% of their mini-series will be $3.99.


I think it's absolutely disgusting to charge more for what???? The same amount of pages and story as the 1980s (albeit on better paper with better ink).

Out of that list I only get Uncanny X-Men anyway. I'll stick with that, but it will probably be at the cost of a $2.99 title.

I stopped buying trades after they put the price up by $10 - $15 for no additional content.

Putting up the prices won't maximise profits OR attract new readers. Is it a huge mistake that will destroy the industry... probably not, but time will tell.
