If Marvel did the sensible thing to consolidate all the Spiderman titles into one thick magazine sized book, who's to say that it wouldn't get lost in the sea of Batman spinoff titles? Customers are more like to see four Batman titles versus the one Spiderman title and it may influence their purchase.
I think you have a great point though, Fouthman. I would buy comics, more of them if they were all collected into one magazine ala Panini's reprints. I wouldn't mind spending 5 bucks for a comic that had 100 pages of new material plus ads.
The real test will be when Amazing 600 comes out, that will be over 100 pages of new material for 4.99.
it's not a test though, cause shops have already ordered it and that is what the charts reflect. Captain America will overwhelmingly be the best selling book for this month and I doubt if nation wide there is a 50% sell through rate.
