Above numbers do not include collections, variants,  or "magazines". Only single issues, almost all of which are 48 pages or less. A 64-pager may have slipped in there somewhere.

Funnily enough, the majority of DC's $3.99 singles are at least 40 pages. Marvel includes 40-48pp singles in the mix, but many $3.99 titles are merely 32pp. Dark Horse, meanwhile, is finding a happy middle ground at $3.50 for all but its most popular titles, which remain at $2.99. Only three IDW singles aren't $3.99, and those are a $2 Parker prelude, a $7.99 Doctor Who annual, and a $9.99 Sam Keith sketchbook.
