$3.99 = 10 Pages???

So I just picked up my comics for the last fortnight and noticed that Captain America #4 seemed awfully thin compared to the other books. Did a page count and there was just 10, (Excluding ads and crappy preview that was in Marvel comic that week) and then noticed it was one or Marvel's $3.99 books. Was this just a ridiculously short book or have I picked up a dodgy issue? How many pages did your copy have? Thanks

Problem solved, turns out my copy has 10 pages missing...great.

I got a comic like that once. It was bagged with a full copy and a half copy.

Weird. Why have a full and a half copy? Seriously, why?

$3.99 for 20 pages is still bull. All the $2.99 comics are 20 pages, at least DC's are. To be $3.99 it needs at least 30 pages of story.
