Well I'll agree with you here; I refuse to pay for any title which is at $3.99 per issue.
I was a long time Hulk, and Thor fan. Now that their books are at this price I won't buy them. I've cut my ties with those titles until their prices reduces (if ever).
But I'm sure there are people who will continue to buy the titles no matter the price, and to them I say "good luck."
I'll also agree that Marvel should try out new (or unused) genres, and see how it fares. An anthology mini-series might be a good idea.
At least try something!
I agree with you on this point as well Abe. The best recent example I can use is Moon Knight. It was a lower selling title that I enjoyed very much when it fist came out and up until they "killed" the Marc Spector part of him. But now they are going to relaunch the title in Aug. and is goes from $2.99 to $3.99? NO THANKS!!!! I will NOT be getting this new relaunch.
