More on the pricing of <i>Flashpoint</i> and its related mini-series

Last month when DC Comics announced that the upcoming Flashpoint event would include not only a five-issue Flashpoint miniseries, but also 15 other miniseries that would “expanding on the events, along with several important one shots,” folks naturally wondered how much all that would cost.

Any way you slice it, 16 miniseries are going to add up if you decide you want to buy all of it, but today DC revealed the price for each comic. “The five issues of the core Flashpoint series are oversized, 40 page books priced at $3.99 each, while the other mini series and the one shots will be priced at $2.99,” said David Hyde on DC’s The Source blog.

Hydealso shared the solicitation text for the first issue of Flashpoint:

Everything You Know Will Change in a Flash!

Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an elseworld. This is a Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it? It’s a place where America’s last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of the Outsider, the Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces.

It’s a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the time line!

Welcome to FLASHPOINT!
