Interesting Tidbit...


Looking at this minimum wage chart you find out this:

In 1982, two hours worth of pay you could get 10 comics (min wage: 3.35, price per comic: .60).
Today, two hours of pay will get you about 4 (min wage: 7.25, price per comic: 2.99).
And most prices are raising this year to 3.99 so that may come down even more to 3.

Looks like more than inflation is involved with this one...

I saw that comics were 3.99 a piece and realized that I would never buy another single comic. They killed the industry.

Yeah... between the price gouging (seemingly justified by using higher quality paper - what was wrong with newsprint??) and removing them from grocery stores they started their own demise.
