DC Raises Batman Price To 5 Bucks; Scott Snyder Not Happy



Have you noticed as of late all the $4.99 DC and Marvel comics books?

Well, the price is not just for extended issues as I'm guessing it's The Big Two's way of getting the readers prepared for a price hike.

And that is exactly what happened with the #1 selling comic with DC's Batman.

DC Comics told retailers about the price hike (it's still listed as being $3.99 on their website), with mention Batman would also be boosted to 30 pages starting with Snyder and Greg Capullo's "Endgame" story next week (via Bleeding Cool).

Now Scott Snyder has commented and replied to fans on Twitter, and he doesn't seem too happy about the Batman price hike as he asked DC to reduce it.

I recall when Marvel Comics raised a majority of their comics to 4 bucks, a bigwig said it was nothing to do with the cost factor, but everything to do with seeing how much they can get fans to pay.
