Numbercrunching DC August 2011 Solicitations

Posted by May 29, 2011 Comment

Numbercrunching DC’s August 2011 solicitations, looking at all original DCU-related titles is a little easier. At DC, we have a better idea of page numbers. Not an exact idea but a better idea. Until DC actually post story page numbers in their solicitations, we won’t know for sure, but they seem to be closer to an actual plan, month on month.

In August, the price per page is hit by the number of $4.99 Retro Books with plenty of pages, but I only count the new material, not the backup reprints… removing those gets you 14 cents a page instead.

As to whether a price change will accompany the September renumbering and relaunching of all DCU titles that I’ve been predicting, I have no idea. Yet.

August 2011:  75 books – 57 titles at $2.99 (20 pages of story), 5 titles at $3.99 (30 pages of story), 12 at $4.99 (22 pages of new story) and 1 at $5.99 (72 pages of story).
