Secret Empire #6 Is So Good Marvel Upped Price, Added 8 Pages, Delays A Week

They're also offering glow in the dark cosmic cubes to distract you from the delay and new price.

Some say a price can't be put on art. Marvel disagrees though, saying an extra 8 pages of Secret Empire #6 will raise the price by $1, making the issue 48 pages at $4.99. Perfection takes time as well, so the release date is bumped from July 12 to July 19. These extra pages would explain why Rod Reis was tagged in to work on pages for issue #4 and completely draw issue #5.

In an attempt to distract from the obvious cash grabs, delays, and price hikes, which occur with every event comic series, Marvel is offering Glow in the Dark Cosmic Cubes to retailers to be given out or sold to customers. Hopefully your LCS is giving them out though, as the cost of Secret Empire keeps rising.

The updated solicit text is below.
