DIGITAL COMICS: DC Available Everywhere
DC has announced its entire line is now available through Kindle Store, iBookstore and NOOK Store™. Take the jump for more info straight from DC.
DC Entertainment, the #1 comic book publisher in the U.S., announced today its entire line of periodical comic books are now available for download from the top three e-bookstores including Kindle Store, iBookstore and NOOK Store™. The precedent setting new digital availability brings bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo periodical titles, including JUSTICE LEAGUE, BATMAN, SUPERMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS, ACTION COMICS, BATGIRL, WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN, FABLES and AMERICAN VAMPIRE, among many others, to an even broader audience of digital readers.
“As e-readers and tablets continue to explode in popularity it’s important for us to offer consumers convenience and choice in how they download digital comics and graphic novels and these new distribution deals with the top three e-bookstores do just that,” said Jim Lee, co-publisher, DC Entertainment. “We’re very excited to work with Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble to bring bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo periodicals to their e-bookstores.”
This sets up DC as the only publisher to offer its full line-up across all digital platforms. Couple that with the Day-and-Date deal for the entirety of the New 52 and DC is handily pushing themselves toward the future. With this step putting DC ahead of the curve, the next question is “How long before another company joins them and who will it be?” My money’s on Marvel making their own announcement later this month.
