I hate it when my favourite books come out more than once a month. What are they thinking.

I know LOADS of people that used to buy Marvel comics that just pirate them now.

Sorry new/returning guy: Marvel exploits it's existing reader base because they've put up with the price gouging for years now, and not enough people have started trade-waiting (or dropping Marvel all together) to make a difference.

I just started reading Marvel since NOW but the only title I'm sticking with for sure is Deadpool. I've enjoyed most of them but they are just too expensive. They don't even reduce the digital prices after a month like DC do.

You forgot to use a question mark! Lmao!!11!!!111!!!111! You aren't really related to Bendasss, are you?

What "they" are thinking is, let's take some more nerd money!, with 1/2 books, twice as often! (Since "They" aren't smart enough to notice111!!!111!!!)

Instead of double shipping to take advantage of the suckers who won't trade-wait...why not combine both issues and release a double-sized issue at the end of the month?

I'd actually kinda understand the $4+ price point then.

I remember when the "Ultimate" line first came out, there was a Marvel "magazine" with an Ult. X-Men, Ult. Spider-man, and Ult. Team-up story for $4. That made sense; 3 stories for that price was pretty good. And then Marvel up and cancelled that magazine, and you had to go buy the separates. Haven't bought a Marvel comic since.
