Marvel Comics to follow competitor’s lead and also drop prices to $2.99? But only on “some” books.

Following DC’s earlier news and drop to $2.99 pricing, comes Marvel’s news:

During the ICv2 Conference On Comics & Digital – a Thursday afternoon industry pre-event to New York Comic Con – Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales & Circulation David Gabriel confirmed that new books launching in January 2011 will not debut at $3.99. “A lot of talk I’ve heard [today is] about the pricing increases overall…because of the digital comics sales, prices will decrease,” he said as part of a panel whose focus was “Print Vs. Digital.”
