Starting with this issue, the price of ACTION is now $3.99. Instead of the usual 22 pages of the main story, we were given only 20. Justifiying this price increase is the Captain Atom "Second Feature" (I like to call it a BACKUP), which is a mere 10 pages long. So in reality, I'm paying a dollar extra for the story I buy the book for, only to get two pages less of that same story. Additionally, I'm paying for a story I wouldn't buy on its own.

In spite of all the competition (videogames, DVD, cable TV, the Internet), it's still no wonder nobody buys comics anymore. Prices that historically rise faster than the rate of inflation, combined with asinine editorial decisions, are killing a once-great medium.

No. I don't think I feel ripped off.

I like the fact there are double features which brings more bang to than some of Marvel's $3.99 titles like New Avengers & Thor.

Although I think another character should be spotlighted other than Captain Atom but I'll read it anyway.

If I had my way, instead of Captain Atom, I would of done a rotating feature similiar what the series did in the early 80's rotating Atom, Aquaman & Air Wave. Would be great to feature the two Atoms, maybe Congorillia & Aquaman.
