DC Relaunches All Comics Including Simultaneous Digital and Print Publication

From DC Comics:

DC Comics is making history today as it relaunches its entire line of comic books with all new first issues, which, for the first time, will all be available for purchase digitally on the same day they are released in print.


The release of JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 officially kicks off “The New 52” as part of DC Comics’ plan to launch an entire comic book line of 52 new number one issues this fall.


“The New 52” also marks a new era in digital availability for comics, as all books will launch the same day digitally with their physical counterparts. This groundbreaking initiative makes DC Comics the first major publisher to release all of its comic book titles digitally the same day as they are available in print. All new issues can be downloaded to PC, tablet or mobile devices on the Windows, iOS and Android platforms.
