I'd like to get some people's opinions on this: Would anyone be inclined to purchase a color comic, printed on high-grade newsprint (instead of offset paper like standard comics) and without a glossy cover, if the price was between $1.00 and $1.50? Would anyone only buy a comic like that under certain conditions (ie, it was an action comic instead of a humor comic)? Would anyone not buy one under any circumstances?
I have been considering publishing a product like this, and have supposed that a cheap comic, as long as it had good enough art and story, might be appealing given the sticker shock of comics these days. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
