Prices So Low, They Must Be Crazy!

It's not often we get to publish this sort of news, that a company has decided not to raise its prices. Granted, it's only one book, but it does prove what anybody with half a brain (oh, lord, I just channeled Jemas) has been saying for years: if a lot of people buy a book, then the publisher can keep its price down.

Sadly, Captain Marvel, the inspiration for U-DECIDE, is still due for a price increase to $2.99, even though it won.

Due to the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response by readers and retailers to the bold, new direction of the THUNDERBOLTS that began with February's issue #76, Marvel is pleased to announce that a planned price increase to $2.99 that was slated to take effect with April's THUNDERBOLTS #78 has been cancelled, and that the ongoing monthly series will retain its low $2.25 cover price.

Under the creative direction of writer John Arcudi and up-and-coming superstar penciler Francisco Ruiz Velasco, THUNDERBOLTS #76 completely reinvented the title, introducing readers to the seamy underbelly of the supervillain community, where C-list badguys without the ambition, brains or power to be real Marvel Universe menaces bash each other's skulls in for a
few measly bucks in an underground "Fight Club"-style network!

"Anytime you reinvent a title you're always taking chances," said Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "What minimizes your risk is always great content and great casting. This is a case where casting the right artist with the perfect writer and combining it with a bold new concept wrapped
within a great story is really paying off. Reports of the new T-Bolts selling out and our own strong belief in this series and its future made it an easy decision to keep the cover at $2.25, and we hope fans take this opportunity to give one of the year's most unique and visionary new series a try."

THUNDERBOLTS #77 goes on sale 3/19. Fans retailers still have until 3/27 to place orders for THUNDERBOLTS #78, on sale 4/16. THUNDERBOLTS #77-79 continues the first story arc establishing the title's new direction, and readers can look forward to an upcoming two-part story arc guest-starring Spider-Man, beginning with June's THUNDERBOLTS #80.
