    I would have payed 5 dollars for it anyway(just like schism #1 *sigh*) but oh well more incentive to buy I guess.

    I'm sorry, but I find it hard to interpret this as a price slash. $3.99 is the cost of a typical Marvel comic. That's not much of a slash. That's not even a scratch. It sure would be nice to see $2.99 or even $2.49 just for this issue. I miss those days. I've long since accepted that they're never coming back.

    'Slashing' really implies it would be cheaper than a normally priced comic. Not just 'expensive, but less expensive than we originally said.'

    Not sure I get the move. Is Marvel that afraid of bad sales for a #1?

    I think it has extra pages for a cheaper price. So instead of the typical 20 pages we get a mega sized 32 pager!

    While I appreciate the change on Marvel's part, I'll still have to pass because this will be a permanent ongoing at $4 for only 20 pages. Bring it down to $3 and I'll be happy to try it out.

    It would not surprise me if this was always slated as 3.99 and some marketing guy said 'announce it as a $5 book, then we can lower it later on and look nice guys!'

    I would pay more for extra content. I always by the super-sized issues that cost more. Love when they throw in an old issue like in Legacy w/ the New Mutants issue.

    If Marvel would make Wolv & the X-Men #1 only $1.00, I bet it would be the highest selling #1 issue in over 10 years.

    They were probably planning to sell at this price all along. They initially announce the price higher so they can make an extra press release announcing the price has been cut. That gets them extra coverage, and creates the impression people are getting a bargin.
