Marvel’s One Dollar Menu

While I am thinking of Messiah Complex, let me state my irritation at Marvel’s new “charge an extra dollar for reprinted material and/or pin-ups, but basically the same story pages as a regular comic” approach.

Messiah Complex has 23 story pages, and the rest is either reprinted profile pieces or pin-ups (most of the pin-ups are new, at least).

The first part of One More Day had 24 story pages, and the rest was reprinted profile pieces and behind-the-scenes looks at Quesada’s artwork.

I don’t mind an extra dollar for more story – but could you imagine trying to sell the extra material on its own for a dollar? Who’d take you up on that offer? Heck, I wouldn’t even mind the approach they used with Wolverine Origins #1216, where they reprinted a complete issue (with a related story) along with the main story for a buck. That’s value, at least.

This?

Not so much.
