In June, Nightwing and Suicide Squad will be joining Aquaman switching from twice-monthly to monthly — and as a result get the price rise from $2.99 to $3.99.
It’s worth noting that it seems that originally the plan for DC Comics was that the twice-monthly schedule at DC Comics was only meant to last a year, but its success saw DC Comics extend that, now heading into its third year. Some books have dropped out, for a variety of reasons.
Surviving as twice-monthly titles now are Batman, Detective Comics, The Flash, Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps, Harley Quinn, Injustice 2, and Wonder Woman.
But it’s notable that some twice-monthly or weekly titles for June are now $3.99 including the new Justice League series, as well as Man of Steel.
However, despite criticism we may just have made of the DC New Age of Heroes line, those monthly comics at least are holding the line at $2.99.

Variant cover by JOHN ROMITA. JR. • Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for details. Nightwing investigates a string of murders that at first seem disconnected…but when signs start to point to the digital underworld, the mean streets of Blüdhaven begin to transform. So how does a hero like Dick Grayson-—used to using his fists to solve problems—stop a villain he can’t get his hands on? Especially when Blüdhaven isn’t the only thing compromised by a tech implant in this new “smart city” initiative…so is Nightwing’s mind.
