I value consistency. (It’s a big part of my work as a copy editor.) So when I got this notice:
I was surprised to note that the latest issue of this intermittent series of specials was the same price, $3.50, as the last one, which came out in 2003. It’s not every product that keeps the same price for five years, especially in this era of comic inflation. (An extra dollar for a cardstock cover, Marvel? No, I don’t think I’ll buy that.)
The Mavis specials are fun reads, too. This one is order code NOV07 3546 and here’s the publisher description:
The 32-page issue will feature the story “Weird Eye for the Normal Guy,” in which Wolff & Byrd’s regular clients The Creeps start a business to teach regular folks how to be scary. (If this sounds familiar, the story will be an expanded version of the one that appeared earlier this year at www.supernaturallaw.com). As with any MAVIS issue, the bulk of the story revolves around Mavis’s personal life. This time she and her boyfriend go to an obligatory birthday party for the slacker brother of an old high school friend, and it turns out to be anything but a party.
