Chapterhouse Changes The Comic Book Game With $1.99 Monthly Issues And $9.99 Trades!
Chapterhouse – Chapterverse
Good news for comic book readers! Chapterhouse Publishing, a Toronto-based comics publisher, has announced its new (very affordable!) pricing structure for all superhero titles in the publisher’s Chapterverse.
According to the new announcement, all monthly superhero titles in the Chapterverse will be priced at $1.99 US, while the trade paperback collections will be priced at $9.99 US. The new pricing applies to all Chapterverse titles that’ll be released in 2018. These books include Captain Canuck, The Pitiful Human Lizard, Fantomah, and a highly-enjoyable comic book series I’ve talked about here before, Freelance.
“All comic fans are faced with a choice every Wednesday on how best to spend their hard-earned money,” said Chapterhouse publisher Keith WTS Morris. “We want to make giving our Chapterverse books a try an easy choice to make. Chapterhouse is determined not to let price point be a barrier into our world of comics.”
Chapterhouse founder and CEO Fadi Hakim said that the new price really makes sense for the fans. “We’ve become big enough to receive a sizeable savings from our printer, and in turn, we’re passing on that savings to our retailers and readers. You can now get our entire universe for between four to six dollars a month!”
Feel free to watch what Jay Baruchel, the Chapterhouse CCO, has to say about why you should give the Canadian publisher a chance!
“We are beyond psyched to be providing a whole new generation of comics fans top quality storytelling at literally half the price of our competitors,” says Chapterhouse Chief Creative Officer Jay Baruchel. “Our goal is to entertain you with the best possible stories populated by the richest characters. Life is expensive. Comics shouldn’t be.”
The new pricing initiative will begin in January 2018, offering fans the second season of Chapterhouse’s two “most acclaimed titles: Freelance, starring gay superhero Lance Valiant, and Fantomah, featuring a revival of the Golden Age horror icon.”
The $1.99 price tag for each monthly issue will also be applied to 2018’s issues of “Captain Canuck, Pitiful Human-Lizard, Fallen Suns, and Northguard.” Chapterhouse, which was founded in 2015, will also be announcing two new titles next year which will also follow the new pricing!
As someone who reads A LOT OF COMIC BOOKS, I’m glad that I’ll at least be able to get some of them at a lower price. I can’t wait for Freelance season 2!
