DC selling digital comics through Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble
With this move you have to wonder if Marvel will continue to market subscriptions only through their own site & apps, or whether they will jump into the big e-retail world.
In a move that could provide a boost to the small but growing digital comic book business, DC Comics has signed deals to sell comics through online stores owned by Apple, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Previously, comic book readers could only buy digital copies of issues to read on tablets or other digital devices through DC’s own app, or an application controlled by the company ComiXology.
While graphic novels have previously been available to buy for digital devices through a variety of stores, DC is the first company to offer single comic book issues through Apple’s iBookstore, Amazon’s Kindle Store and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Book Store.
