The End of the Line for $2.99 on New Age of DC Heroes? Plus: The Unexpected Ends With #8

Posted by October 15, 2018 Comment

Once upon a time, DC Comics planned to hold the line at $2.99 on their New Age of Heroes comics, but those days appear to be coming to a close with DC’s January solicitations. Both Damage and Silencer have upped their price to $3.99, with only The Curse of Brimstone, Sideways, and The Terrifics sticking with the $2.99 price. And some of these $2.99 issues were originally meant to come out in December.

Well, technically, The Unexpected is also priced at $2.99 in January… but it’s also the book’s final issue.

If the New Age of DC Heroes goes to $3.99, or goes away, that leaves just the kids books – Looney Tunes, Teen Titans Go, and Scooby-Doo Team-Up, to hold that line alone.

Check out the New Age of DC Heroes solicits below.

Trapped in Jack’s mind games, Annie comes close to going over a fateful edge against another supernatural foe. But just when all seems lost, help arrives from an unlikely—and unholy—source.

Damage gets a new home: the Hall of Justice! The Justice League takes in former super-soldier Ethan Avery after their clash from last ish, and looks to train him to better use his powers. The lovefest ends quickly, though, when the League’s tactics cause Ethan to have flashbacks to the military experiments that transformed him into Damage. Batman may be the World’s Greatest Detective, but it might take more than a big brain to stop a power-house like Damage from setting his own path. And oh, what a path he chooses!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
