On How Much More Do Comic Books Cost Today?

Comic books were printed on cheap paper that deteriorates over time. That's one reason why the first appearances of Superman and Batman are worth so much: the number of decent copies that survive are limited. The paper comics today are printed on, the quality of the printing process itself, are much, much higher. The comics that would cost $1.00 when adjusted for inflation don't exist now. No one prints on that cheap paper using cheap printing.
