Marvel Announces $2.99 Pricepoint Limited Series


Well, I guess Marvel are finally starting to realize that many fans are just not willing to pay $3.99 an issue for their comics, especially when they are trying out something new. In the wake of DC’s announcement to reduce prices to $2.99, and a wave of reports of reduced overall comics sales for 2010, Marvel have announced a first wave of new limited series priced at $2.99.

It’s a start, but I doubt fans will be pleased until they see a reduction in the price of titles like The Avengers, Captain America, etc. .

From the press release:
