The Death Of Wolverine #2, #3 And #4 Join The $4.99 Creep

STK647930-225x350These were the rather bare solicitations for September’s The Death Of Wolverine from Marvel Comics.

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1
CLASSIFIED
Variant and sketch covers by Joe Quesada and Alex Ross, covers by Skottie Young, Deadpool variant
9/3/2014 $4.99

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #2
CLASSIFIED
9/10/2014 $3.99

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #3
CLASSIFIED
9/17/201 $3.99

DEATH OF WOLVERINE #4
CLASSIFIED
9/24/2014 $3.99

Well, we know the creators are Charles Soule and Steve McNiven. But the price? Bleeding Cool has been told that the prices of issues 2 to 4 will join issue 1 in the $4.99 stakes.

As DC Comics sees more and more titles slip from $2.99 to $3.99, and Marvel makes a $2.99 price point the exception rather than the rule, we are also seeing more and more titles slip to $4.99. Sometimes a little fatter, sometimes a thicker cover, usually for mini-series or one-offs… how long before we get a five dollar ongoing series?
