This is something we have never seen before. Comic Publishers have now recognize the importance of new media, like iPad. Thus DC Comics are going to launch their new comic series on iPad together with traditional comic books. Yes, you will be able to download the copy of the comics on your iPad the very same day the books are released.
This will not only bring new readers from different countries who might not be able to get hold of the comic books as early the guys in US. It will most likely bring in younger generation of comic readers as it will be much easier to purchase a comic books on iPad rather than going down to the store.
I’m quite excited as this is the first time Comic publisher recognize how important it is to have their presence on iPad, and I’m sure more and more publishers will do that too.
