DC Comics expands digital titles
PHILADELPHIA — DC Comics is expanding its digital storefront, putting all its monthly titles — from Batman to Superman — on sale at iTunes, Amazon's Kindle store and Barnes & Noble's Nook shop. The move announced Wednesday appears to make DC Entertainment the first major comics publisher to make its titles available through online stores the same day they're on sale in comic shops. It also expands its digital offerings beyond the top industry digital purveyor, Comixology. Hank Kanalz, DC Entertainment senior vice president for digital, said the decision shows the importance of digital downloads to the company, which relaunched its universe last year under the so-called “New 52” banner. “We've proven over the last two years that going digital has added to our business in general and going wider is the way to go,” he said.
