Growing up in the 70s when inflation was out of control, they would plaster the word "still" in front of the price every year or so. Of course, it only meant one thing: the price was going up by a nickel. That didn't bother me so much, but when they shrunk the number of actual comic pages to 17, that meant half the book was ads. Couldn't get a decent story going with only 17 pages.
can you imagine an ad like this today?--"Still $3.99!"
