Episode 39 | Is $9.99 a problem?

This episode was recorded September 26th, 2015. This week, Mike, Nick, and special guest Jeff (who’s audio is static-y, and we apologize!) talk comics and their comic picks for the week (Archie #3, They’re Not Like Us #8, and Material Volume 1). The gang discusses price points in comics–Justin Jordan talked about how $9.99 volume 1’s at Image sometimes don’t work. Following, BOOM! announced a 15% reduction in comics being produced and a new LCS program to keep #1s in their shop.
