DC is holding their “Special Event” panel at C2E2 tonight, billed as: “This is the panel everyone will be talking about!” Dan DiDio, Tony Daniel, James Tynion IV, Rob Venditti are scheduled to appear at the panel which DC calls “can’t miss,” and Bleeding Cool has reporter Robert Goode on the scene, sending in updates, and you can follow along with our live blog here.
Most of the panel so far has been a run through of the information we already heard at the Diamond Retailer Summit, but Dan Didio revealed an interesting tidbit when he said that all of the books will be launched at $2.99, and will feature only one cover. Didio jokingly referred to it as “heresy,” but went on to say, “This is a test to see if we are doing something people want,” adding, “Its about putting something out there.”
DC has recently gained ground in market share with their lower priced books. $2.99 will not be an introductory price for the line. It will be the ongoing price.
