Speaking to the guy in my local shop the other day about the price of comics and how now trade waiting doesn't really save people money, whereas a few years ago a major argument for trade waiting was it would save you money. I was looking at a Wonder Woman book the other day, it was a softcover collection of 10 issues, it was £29.99. It's really strange now thinking how expensive comics have become and it's something that nobody seems to really speak about. On a related note the same person told me Sean Phillips told him he doesn't really make any money until 2 or 3 months after the trades of his books are published. That someone as established as Sean Phillips can apparently get so little return for his craft says a lot, that it can happen when comics are getting more expensive is even more mindboggling. I can remember getting the first slipcased omnibus edition of The Walking Dead wayback when it was still just an Image comic, it wasn't a pop culture phenomenon, I'd never heard of it, my comic shop guy just said "This is pretty good I think you'll like it". That was a hardback oversized book of 24 issues, covers and bonus content and it was £60 I think. The newest one is £89.99 and it's the same size.
