Something that I’ve been considering doing for a long time now is reading comics digitally. I have had internal battles about supporting my local comic book stores and also trying not to take up too much space in my storage unit and apartment (I have to save room for toys, duh!). Digital comic reading has become more and more popular over the past couple years and now DC Comics has taken the next step and moved beyond their own app, opening up digital download to users of the “mainstream” digital downloading programs/companies suchas Nook, Ibook, and Kindle. Will comic books be a thing of the past one day? I don’t know, but it’s getting increasingly difficult not to sell-out!
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.”
Stay tooned 😛
