Great answer, great discussion to have. Point three is especially close to my publishing heart.
The only thing I sorta disagree with is the notion that decades-old books should be super-cheap. Armor Wars 2 isn’t $30 because they want to steal your money (well, okay, they do, but still…). It’s $30 because they put some time into restoring the art for modern publication techniques. All those Dr. Martin color dyes need to be redone in Photoshop, and that stuff takes time (and thus, money).
I wish they’d be cheaper, sure, but it doesn’t always work out that way. In fact, one reason that the modern (80s and 90s) reprints are more expensive than older (60s and 70s) reprints is that Marvel probably already paid to restore the line art for the old books for their Essential line, whereas Armor Wars 2 requires a fresh restore.
You got letters about her haircut? Really?
Isn’t charging a lot for decades-old titles Criterion’s business model in a nutshell?
@hilker: As far as I can tell, Criterion’s business model is that there’s a commercially viable number of film nuts who are willing to shell out serious coin for quality sound and picture, with some serious added value attached.
