Comic book fans can rejoice. In one complete swoop, DC Comics announced its arrival on the three major digital platforms. DC Comics is the Number 1 comic book publisher in the U.S. and boasts of comic book heroes and titles like Justice League, Batman, Superman, Detective Comics, Action Comics, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Fables and American Vampire. All the monthly titles published under DC Comics and Vertigo will now be available for download on Kindle Store, iBookstore and NOOK Store.
So far, DC Comics is the first and only comic book publisher that has opened up its presence on these three e-retailers. It could very well spur other comic book publishers to follow suit. Jim Lee, co-publisher, DC Entertainment said,
“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. We’re very excited to work with Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble to bring bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo periodicals to their e-bookstores.”
Now readers have multiple avenues to download the digital versions of the comics. In addition to the three platforms, issues will be available periodically through the DC Comics and Vertigo apps, and all comiXology platforms on the DC Entertainment website.
