Like many of our illustrious elders my dad recalled buying comics for a nickel.
Now historically with the exception of a popular comic named Nickel Comics from Fawcett Publishing ( Captain Marvel aka Shazam ) and some issues of the Dell Publishing tabloid sized "The Funnies", issues usually carried a cover price of 10 cents, but that doesn't mean you couldn't commonly find them for half that at various news stands if you waited a bit.
Comics distribution up through the 1970's was newsstand oriented and unsold comics were credited and set aside to be destroyed. Most vendors simply marked them down and made a little something extra. With the institution of the direct market vendors controlled their own orders at a better discount, but took on the responsibility of having no return credits ( if you don't sell 'em you eat 'em ) which on a positive note has built up quite a nice back-issue marketplace for newer readers.
Don't forget we also have Gift Certificates available in any amount so spread the joy of comics this season like the way they used to give McDonald's gift certificates in the old days.
