DNP DC Comics and Vertigo graphic novels coming to Google Play, sandmen and all

If you've looked up to Google Play and DC Comics and shouted "save us money" without hearing any whispered responses, there's a reason: they were waiting. Today, DC Entertainment announced that it's brought a whole slew of its comics and Vertigo graphic novels to Google's online storefront in the form of collected editions. This "extensive lineup" is available now and includes Watchmen, Sandman and a chunk of the recent DC Universe. ComiXology is getting the same deal, but unlike Google Play's previously sparse selection, a lot of what's listed after the break was already available within the digital comics app. It may not be as comprehensive of an offering compared to what's available on other marketplaces, but hey, it's a start.

DC ENTERTAINMENT CONTINUES DIGITAL DOMINANCE WITH NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL AND COLLECTED EDITION DISTRIBUTION ON COMIXOLOGY AND GOOGLE PLAY

Publisher has Broadest Digital Distribution Reach in Comics Industry

Extensive Line of Bestselling Titles Including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Sandman and DC Comics – The New 52 Collections Available for Download Today

Burbank, CA – Oct. 8, 2013 – 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 an extensive line-up of graphic novels and collected editions are now available for download from comiXology and Google Play. This expansion in distribution brings bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo titles, including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Sandman, Y the Last Man and an assortment of DC Comics – The New 52 collections, among many others, to an even broader audience of digital readers.

"This expanded distribution furthers DC Entertainment's goal to offer our readers convenience and choice," stated DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee. "ComiXology is a clear leader in delivering digital comics, while Google is one of the biggest mobile content brands in the world. We're very excited to bring bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo graphic novels to their 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.
