Prices Through the Years
« on: November 19, 2011, 12:22:04 pm »
Pricing

Timing varies slightly by publisher, as not all publishers changed prices at the same time. (Data samples taken from X-Men, Action Comics, and Avengers cover-price listings in ComicBase 10 Archive Edition.) Typical prices of a new, standard-size, mainstream American comic book, in US$:

Until -1962:   .10
19621969:   .12
19691971:   .15
19711974:   .20
19741976:   .25
19761977:   .30
19771979:   .35
19791980:   .40
19801981:   .50
19821985:   .60
19851986:     .65
19861988:     .75
19881991:   1.00
19921995:   1.25
19951996:   1.50

I remember picking up 15 centers from the Maverick Market in Victoria Texas for my big brother.


"2. IF YOU DON'T READ THE BOOK BUT ARE WILLING TO ARGUE ABOUT IT EITHER YOU ARE:
a) An idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about.
b) A liar who is a fan who can't admit it to himself or others."

When I first started buying comics marvel's price was 60 cent. DC was 75 cent. Way back in the convenience store spinner rack days...
