The Price Of Uncanny Avengers

Posted by September 26, 2012 Comment

When Marvel began their hardcover line, back in the days of Bill Jemas, the hardcovers were attractively priced. Sometimes they would cost quite a but less than the cost of the original issues. They were a steal.

Today, not so much. The Premiere hardcovers changed the equation again, so that they were more expensive, but still not so much

The listing for the Uncanny Avengers – Volume 1: The Red Shadow hardcover however, is a revelation.

$24.99 for four issues. Issues that cost $3.99 each. In the hardcover, that works out as $6.25 each.

Even at the Amazon discount of 34% off (for now), that still works out as $4.12 each.

Ouchie. Especially since some retailers will be heavily discounting Uncanny Avengers when it comes out in individual issues.

If you’re a tradewaiter, you might want to ask yourself why…
