The Price Of Exclusivity: Captain Marvel: Monica Rambeau TPB Jumps Five Bucks

Bleeding Cool pointed out that Marvel Comics was putting out a trade paperback containing the stories of Monica Rambeau, a previous Captain Marvel who was a member and leader of the Avengers. But that it was being kept exclusive to comic book stores, which seemed an attempt not to confuse the book market with a black Captain Marvel when the movie, and more contemporary comics, feature a white Captain Marvel (even one who is half Kree). But that comic store customers were more than capable of handling such a concept. And it seemed a rather refreshing acknowledgement of the abilities of comic store readers to accept just a concept.

Well, it now seems that concept comes at an added price as the sticker for that particular volume has just jumped from $29.99 to $34.99.

But it will be exclusive to comic stores, isn’t it? .. If so look for this listing to be deleted at some point?
