We should be celebrating the growth of TPB's like Scott Pilgrim and Kick Ass not mourning the loss of heroes who haven't been relevant in years.
I don't believe that the cost of comics is in line with the rising costs of production. I think the rising cost is greatly influenced by the financial demands of the staff and the increased quality of the work. I don't imagine that Stan Lee or Jack Kirby earned a third of what Joe Q or Jim Lee's asking price is relatively speaking. I also don't think we need high gloss paper and computer generated full spectrum color processing either. It's fucking comic book. Not a Norman Rockwell.
