It changes a person's perspective on the mainstream superhero comics to realize that most of them cost $1 more than an issue of Saga. Like, "This looks moderately interesting, but is it a whole dollar more interesting than Saga?" The answer will nearly always be no.

(And oddly, most of the ones for which the answer might conceivably be yes, like Hawkeye and FF and Young Avengers, are in Marvel's lower price bracket. WHO KNOWS.)

Yup. It seems to come down to a branding thing, at least at Marvel - almost anything with an X, an Avenger, or Spider-man in the title is 3.99, regardless, even though most of those seem to be less creator driven (because they're big flagship titles) and therefore less individual and interesting than FF or something.

IDEK.

Yeah, most of the stuff I read (both Marvel and DC) is in the lower price bracket. Sometimes there will be a more expensive series that interests me, but then I'm like, well if it costs more because the art is pretty, maybe I should just wait for the trade anyway.

Ha ha, yes. Single-issue vs. trade is an ongoing dilemma for me. Like, I haven't been buying Saga because I know I'll want trades.
