  1. re: $4 price tag

    Kiss the days of $3 independant comics good bye…

    I loved the Valiant era of XO, I may check this out if the word of mouth is good on it…

  2. I will not pay $4 for Marvel or DC super-hero titles. I’ll give smaller publishers a look at that price point, but you’ve got to be damn good to keep me around. For example, I’m still reading IRREDEEMABLE but bailed on INCORRUPTIBLE after just 2 issues.

  3. “For example, I’m still reading IRREDEEMABLE ”

    Not for long you won’t, Irredeemable has been cancelled, only a few more issues to go… :-(

  4. The cover is very nice! However, I’m beyond being sold by a cover. Show me three or four interior pages and then maybe I’ll get interested. Granted I know who Cary Nord is and have some of his past work, but artists can and due modify their styles to fit the story they are telling.

    As for prices, I think that Image has some of the best books going today and many of then are only $2.99.(Morning Glories, Walking Dead, Glory, Chew, etc). So if books of that caliber can be published for $2.99, there is no reason to pay Marvel or DC $3.99 for their 32 page publications.

  5. @Rick Hood–not defending Marvel and DC prices, but just wanted to point out that the Image books are generally produced with no upfront payment to the creators, whereas Marvel and DC pay the best rates in the business.

    So while I applaud your choice of Image comics (and hopefully other indie books as well), it’s important to know that part of the reason for higher prices on mainstream books may be attributable to paying the creators, money which often permits them (us) to do creator-owned books with Image.
