Price Rises for Marvel, DC, Legendary Collections

They solicit them at one price. But then, when they arrive in store, they are at a different price. Here are a few to watch out for in that regard.

Aquaman Vol 1: Unspoken Water, the first collection of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Robson Rocha‘s run on Aquaman, and getting a new volume 1 in the process was solicited at $17.99 and is now $24.99 – but that’s also because it has jumped from a paperback to a hardcover volume…

No such excuse for Powers Vol 6 TPB by Brian Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming which, in getting a new edition, has jumped in price from $29.99 to $39.99. But what’s a tenner between friends?

While from Marvel, the Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Menace Revealed TP Vol. 2 will have a new price of $39.99, rather than $34.99.

And the price of Legendary Comics’ Trick R Treat Omnibus has also taken a similar jump, from $19.99 to $29.99. This hasn’t been solicited yet, but presumably already printed in the upcoming Diamond Previews and so needs a correction…

Here are the new solicitations to prove the point…
