Gotta Love DC's Hardcover Pricing Policy

So the two-part "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" storyline is being reprinted, along with three other Gaiman stories (Gaiman's classic Secret Origins stories plus a Gaiman Batman: Black and White story).

128 pages.

$24.99

Ouch.

Same goes for the "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" - 128 pages for $24.99, with three of the four stories featured in the hardcover already being reprinted in the 304 page $20 DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore trade paperback (although, to be fair, that is, well, not really fair, as I really shouldn't be knocking them for a GOOD deal they have while knocking their current BAD deal).

Add in their "classic reprint" story policy, titled DC Comics Classic Library, where they reprint a handful of issues for $39.99! This month's solicitations has a Flash of Two Worlds hardcover, collecting The Flash #123, 129, 137, 151 and 173.

Five issues for $39.99!

Ouch.

It really seems like their policy is, "What? You'll pay it, so what do you expect?"
