Last month, TwoMorrows offered all their magazines at 50% off. This month, they’re extending the sale until December 15 and adding the following book titles published this year:
Image Comics: The Road To Independence by George Khoury
John Romita… And All That Jazz by Roy Thomas and Jim Amash
Brush Strokes With Greatness: The Life & Art of Joe Sinnott (standard edition) by Tim Lasiuta
Working Methods by John Lowe
Comics Introspective: Peter Bagge by Christopher Irving
Comics Gone Ape! by Michael Eury
That brings them all under $20, including postage. Their stated reason is that it’s “due to overwhelming response”. But selling more items cheaper isn’t the usual response to popularity; usually, increased demand means higher prices. Does higher response to the sale mean that their regular prices are too high to maximize profit?
Does TwoMorrows need to raise a bunch of money before the end of the year for some reason? They’re now selling direct to consumers at the same rates, roughly, they sell to retailers. Do comic stores care? I suspect many don’t carry a full line of books, especially titles like these, which are more specialty publications.
