DC Confirms Digital Release List for April 7-8, No New Single-Issue Comics

DC will again release a selection of OGNs, collections, digital-first titles and reprints digitally this week. While earlier Monday dccomics.com/comics showed a full slate of titles that were originally solicited for release April 8, the site has since been amended and DC tells peurban the list is now official.

The release list includes the original YA graphic novel Gotham High and collections of Batman: Last Knight on EarthFreedom Fighters: Rise Of A NationJustice League Of America: A Celebration Of 60 YearsSwamp Thing By Nancy Collins OmnibusTransmetropolitan Book Three, and Wonder Woman Vol. 2: Love Is A Battlefield, all on April 7.

For the second week in a row since Diamond suspended print distribution to the comic book Direct Market as of April 1, the publisher will not digitally release any new day-and-date comic books that will also not reach comic shops simultaneously as originally solicited. 

DC has not officially announced a policy against releasing new day-and-date comics digitally and a couple of weekends ago told retailers they were exploring a “multi-distributor model” and then separately seemed to announce their intention to release new comics digitally, explaining they considered digital and print consumers separate audiences. However, they have not yet released, confirmed the schedule of, or announced the release of any titles but collections, OGNs, reprints and digital-firsts since the Diamond suspension.
