The comics world was shocked today when Bleeding Cool rumormonger Rich Johnston revealed that Forever Evil #7, the long-awaited, already spoiled conclusion to the super-mega-crossover event, would see a one dollar price hike from its solicited price, going from $3.99 to $4.99 (or $5.99 for the digital combo pack). DC Comics? Engage in price gouging to squeeze an extra buck out of fans who are pretty much locked into buying the last issue of the book at this point? How could this happen?!
The Outhouse asked an old Native American witch doctor to explain it:
In case you're still having trouble, let's hear it from Jake the Snake:
Do you get the picture now? It's not shocking that DC would gouge the price on the last issue of this series at the last minute. They've made it clear for the last several years that they hold their readers in contempt. DC considers having to deal with their customers to be the worst part of the comic book business. Why wouldn't they make you pay more to read the conclusion to a book you already know the ending of two months late?
NEVER TRUST A SNAKE!
