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.

As much as I love Moon Knight, and loved the recent on-going I can not justify spending $3.99 an issue.
Even when it's one of my favourite characters.

Marvel should already know that their main audience is 30-50 year old men. What do most 30-50 year old have? Mortgages.
If it comes down to paying the fortnightly mortgagee bill, or an over-priced comic, for me it'll always come down to keeping a roof over my head.
