Even kicking in a typical mail order discount, frankly thats way too steep for my wallet. $50 HC for *10* issues, or $15 TPB for 5, that IMO would be something I'd snap up.
Yeah, I'm not sure that's a fair way to look at it. Single issues would not come thread-bound into a hardcover with a dustjacket. Nor would they include an introduction or be printed on high-quality glossy print.

The price point is high, but these are gift editions--the best treatment these classic stories have ever received. I think Dark Horse will make it through the entire runs, as they are currently selling well enough.

Plus, these are 48 page, oversized, magazine-sized periodicals. Not your typical 22-page, smaller-sized comic. So a $15 TP of 5 issues is unlikely.

Amazon sells 'em for $33 a pop (no shipping fee, either).
