DC Entertainment Digital Comic Books Now Available on Kindle Store, iBookstore and NOOK Store™
BURBANK, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
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™. 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 (News - Alert) and Barnes & Noble to bring bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo
periodicals to their e-bookstores."
DC Entertainment is now the only comic book publiser to offer its
periodical line-up across all major e-bookstore platforms. The deals
reinforce a long track record of digital comics industry leadership and
innovation from DC Entertainment that dates back to its game-changing
decision to make its entire line available same-day digital with the
launch of DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 in Sept. 2011. That launch is widely
seen as reinvigorating the comic book industry, and has led to increased
sales of both digital and print comics.
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 top
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.
Prior to this announcement only DC Entertainment graphic novels were
available through the top three e-bookstores.
