Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Vertigo’s The Sandman Comics Now Available for Download
DC Entertainment, the #1 comic book publisher in the U.S. and home to iconic Super Heroes including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, announced today its current slate of monthly periodical comics are now available for download on Google Play. This expansion in distribution brings DC Comics and Vertigo titles to an even broader audience of digital readers and follows the release of DC Entertainment collected editions and graphic novels on Google Play in Fall 2013.
“DC Entertainment is committed to offering weekly and monthly periodicals to our readers on their preferred platform,” stated Senior Vice President of Vertigo and Integrated Publishing, Hank Kanalz. “Google Play is one of the biggest mobile content brands in the world and we are excited to offer bestselling titles from DC Comics and Vertigo to Google customers.”
Broad digital distribution has remained a cornerstone of DC Entertainment’s business, leading to extensive growth in both digital and print sales over the past three years as digital availability attracts new readers and comic fans alike. DC Entertainment has the widest digital distribution of any comic book publisher and was the first publisher to make its entire line available same-day digitally with the launch of DC Comics – The New 52 in Sept. 2011. That launch is widely seen as reinvigorating the comic book industry.
Visit Google Play in the U.S., with additional markets to follow, to download the latest periodicals, graphic novels and collected editions from DC Entertainment.
