Even for this site, there is no funny way to put this: the regular price for Batman starting with issue #35 (out next week) will be five dollars.

FIVE DOLLARS!

from BleedingCool:

While superhero comics have jumped to that price point or beyond, for individual issues, this will be the first time a regular monthly title has made that jump.

Five hundred cents.

1/12 of a 100+ hour video game (PS3.)

1/2 the price of a kindle book.

“But, RU, they increased the page count.”

So fucking what? All that means is that there will be more useless pages of “story” that don’t mean jack because of decompression. I so look forward to 15 splash pages from Steve McNiven while Mark Millar writes Unforgiven 3: Logan Eastwood.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
