The New Year will see DC Comics raise the price of Batman and Detective Comics to $3.99, while also increasing the page count to 40.
The two Bat titles will be joining Justice League, Action Comics, All-Star Western and Men of War as a member of DC's $3.99 club. DC is still holding the line at $2.99 on their 32 page comics.
John Rood, DC's executive vice president of sales, marketing and business development, spoke with Newsarama and announced the news. However, he stated there was a good reason for the price and page change - a "story reason" that has yet to be announced.
In addition, DC will be offering new "combo packs" for Green Lantern and Detective Comics. GL will be priced at $3.99 and Detective at $4.99, Batman is also now going to be $4.99. The combo packs come with a coupon for the digital copy of the book.
