The usual practice in digital comic books was to wait a while after initial publication and then drop the price of your comic by a dollar. $3.99 become $2.99, $2.99 become $1.99, that kind of thing. DC Comics used to wait 4 weeks, but in 2013 extended that to 8 weeks. Image Comics usually drops to $1.99 after a month. Marvel waits a lot longer, around 18 months or so.
But with DC Comics relaunching at the $2.99 price point for Rebirth – how long will people have to wait until the books drop to $1.99?
According to Comixology, DC won’t be dropping the price of their digital Rebirth books as a matter of course as they did before.
Hi! Starting with Rebirth #1 on 6/11, DC Comics same day digital comics are no longer dropping in price weeks after release.

Sorry for the delay, Brian. DC Rebirth titles are not planned to have price drops

In DC’s case, they drop by a dollar after 2 months. It was originally after 1 month, but it changed a while back. But now it looks like the Rebirth books won’t be dropping at all.
