    It's cool for new readers giving them 6 comic for 4.99, only they're screwing the regular reader like me.
    I've paid 17.94 for the same!
    And to top it of I'm also a reader of Witchblade and they had the same deal.

    I'm really considering of dropping all Top Cow titles (and keep in mind that I have most of the titles they published).

    Wasn't there some deal for those who already have the issues?

    Yeah, I've heard something like that.
    Something like: Rip the covers off the issues and sent those ripped issues to TopCow and you get a coupon for the online shop.
    That's something only I'm living in The Netherlands (Europe) and if I'm ordering something I pay more for the shipping than the content.
    So for Me it's an empty gesture.

    Take care,
    Sweet. I probably sounded more jerk-ish than I intended there, but like I said, I've been waiting a while for it.

    Can't wait

    I don't think every trade they do will be 5 bucks though. But as a general rule you usually save more money on trades. Really the appeal of single issues is you're getting to read the story sooner.

    Personally, the story is worth the $10.74 (with discounts) I paid for it.

    It's a good thing that Top Cow is doing with that program. I'd love to see the savings come my way, but they've already got me as a fan, so I'm not going to complain...too much.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

    And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives.

    I think this is Top Cow's version of the "cheap first trade to hook the readers". Vertigo has $10 trades for the first collections of their books (Fables, Y, Scalped) and Image has started it with their books (Walking Dead, Dynamo 5). It's a good tactic that helps people who do buy trades. This is a way that non Marvel/DC publishers stand out, which is excellent!

    I believe volume 2 was solicited for April with a $10 price tag. Not sure how the delay in issues will affect the release though.
