It's now become much easier to keep up with your weekly DC comics digitally. Previously, the comics had only been available for digital download through the DC Comics official app or through ComiXology, but now the company has announced that the entire DC line-up will be made available in the Kindle Store, iBookstore and Nook Book Store.

"As e-readers and tablets continue to explode in popularity it's important for us to offer consumers convenience and choice in how they download digital comics and graphic novels and these new distribution deals with the top three e-bookstores do just that," says DC Entertainment co-publisher and famed comic book illustrator Jim Lee in a statement. "We're very excited to work with Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble to bring bestselling DC Comics and Vertigo periodicals to their e-bookstores."

This news makes DC Entertainment the first comic book publisher to have its library available in all e-book formats. The latest issues of "Batman," "Superman" and "Wonder Woman" will continue be made available the same day digitally that they are in stores.
