DC Comics lineup hits major e-bookstores

Posted by Thomas Anderson

The entire lineup of DC Comics is now available for direct download from all major e-bookstores, including Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iBookstore and B&N's Nook.

A basic rundown of some of the titles you can expect to find in digital format? Justice League, Batman, Superman, Detective Comics, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Green Lanter, Fables and American Vampire. 

"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 DC co-publisher Jim Lee. 

According to Lee, DC Entertainment is now the only comic book publisher to offer its periodical line-up across all major e-bookstore platforms. The move is expected to go a long way in terms reinvigorating the comic book industry and increasing sales of digital comics.

"We were the first to offer our entire comic book line same-day digital and now we are the first to offer fans the convenience of multiple download options," noted Lee. 

In addition to now being available for direct download through the top three e-bookstores, DC will continue to deliver periodical comics online at www.readdcentertainment.com, via the DC Comics and Vertigo apps, as well as across all comiXology platforms.
