CBR Review: New Avengers #50

I recently reviewed New Avengers #50 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Best to get the 'price issue' out of the way early, don’t you think? Yes, this issue of New Avengers costs five dollars for 37 pages of story and comes out a mere two weeks after Thor #600 had 42 pages of story plus 18 pages of back-up stories, 25 pages of reprint stories, and a cover gallery for the same price. Doesn’t quite seem fair, does it? Well, Thor #600 was a strange creature, packed with content that went above-and-beyond, while New Avengers #50, which costs $3.99 already, seems more typical and suited to its price. Comparing the two isn’t fair, because Thor was the exception and New Avengers is the rule."
