Lengthy gone are the days of strolling into a comic book shop as well as picking up 10 or 12 of your preferred titles and also going down twenty bucks. With a tightening up economic climate and also individual responsibilities, i merely could no longer pay for to adhere to as numerous titles as i made use of two. Now i spend time looking into titles and also makers to earn sure i am grabbing something that not only rate of interests me, but likewise is a high quality item. As a writer of no vacancies, i am creating stories that i believe individuals will certainly want to check out, yet i am additionally conscious of the quality of the finished item.
So i had been reading that marvel was reviving Steve Rogers, the original captain America as well as considering that i love ole cap, i wished to jump back in and also adhere to the tale. I went to my regional comic shop and also grabbed captain the U.S.A. 600 and 1 other title went to the counter and also waited for my total amount. I was stunned when the cashier said $8.76. Two comics for 8 bucks was horrendous and loaded me with despair as i thought of how i would remain to follow this or any other collection i could find passion in. I paid my eight dollars, however really felt truly uneasy regarding the cost of comics today.
Regarding a week passed and i had some leisure on my hands, so i returned to the comic store. There were not any kind of brand new releases that captured my focus; however i did see the store had a sale shelf of the pro comic. I started looking through the box and also found virtually a whole collection from marvel called new Excalibur. I ended up reviewing the last of the books and also i thoroughly delighted in the whole collection. I also feel like i gave my local comic store additional and also mile high some extra service.
Now as a designer, i recognize that these jobs have worth, yet as a customer, i intend to have the ability to enjoy my purchases without sensation as if i need to break the bank. Comics firms need to start checking out methods to cut the expense of the item, in order to attract budget plan conscious readers to begin acquiring once again. In my viewpoint, i prefer to go back to the old newsprint and also pay a buck or two less. The print high quality never ever implied greater than the high quality of the writing as well as art work. I am also not a fan of the online comic book. While i assume they have their area, i much favor the smell of newsprint as well as being able to hold the real comic in hand.
