DC Comics’ entire comics lineup, including those of characters like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batgirl and many others, are now available for direct download from all major e-bookstores. Earlier these comics were available to users only via the official DC iOS/Android apps, and some other third party comic book apps.
DC Entertainment announced their entire lines of periodical comic books are now available for download from three e-bookstores - Kindle Store, iBookstore and NOOK Store.
“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,” he added.
Lee continued, “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.”
In addition to now being available for direct download through the three e-bookstores, DC Entertainment will continue to deliver periodical comics online at www.readdcentertainment.com, through the DC Comics and Vertigo apps, and all comiXology platforms.
If the comics receive a warm welcome by the fans, Amazon may add other publishers to this venture. We wonder when Marvel will follow DC, and make their comics available on these e-bookstores.
