I've never been into comic books, as a kid I had a few that I liked and read, but I never got into collecting, I preferred novels.
But recently I've been seeing Star Wars comics, reading summaries and reading the books and I want to buy them and support the series, etc.
But I have no idea how much they cost. I don't know of any online comic book dealers and searching google gives more about comic news than stores. Amazon has new and used from private dealers for $4 or so and Trade Paperbacks for $12, so I'm thinking this is the norm.
So any comic book fans can tell me how much the average book costs and any online retailers they know of (though I'm more likely going to check out a local store to do the actual purchasing)
