    Default Detective Comics Holds The Line At $7.99 For Issue 900/Issue 19

    Detective Comics #19 would have been the 900th issue of the comic if they hadn't have done that New 52 relaunch thing.

    So, in April, they'll be doing an 80 page comic for $7.99 by John Layman, Jason Fabok, Andy Clarke and a Mad Magazine variant cover.

    Looking at the size and the price point, do you think someone has Amazing Spider-Man #700 envy? Will this be the best revenue-raiser of 2013 for comic stores?

    No, that will be Zelda: Hyrule Historia from Dark Horse. But anyway, here's the solicit...

    it'll be interesting to see how far the artifice of the "anniversary issue" works.

    the last foray into ginning up orders with this gimmick was Marvel reverting back to numbers (even tho in many cases the math was suspect). and then slap on the premium price.

    now, the premium pricing is there but the number is arbitrary.

    tho they say the number '900' is going to factor into the content.
