    Are you a comic book geek? If there’s nothing you enjoy more than spending a few hours reading about the breath taking adventures of Superman or Wonder Woman, you should be extremely excited to know that DC Entertainment has decided to bring its famous comic books to the iBook store. The virtual versions are also available in the Amazon Kindle Store and in the Barnes & Noble Nook Store.

    Jim Lee, co-publisher at DC Entertainment stated:

    "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.â€

    The company has posted approximately 100 current issues but gradually it will start adding older issues, as it continues to put up the current ones. When browsing through the DC comics section in the iBook Store, customers will notice that the issues are divided into “new releasesâ€, “series†and “moreâ€. You can buy an individual issue for $3.99 while a series comes at $12.99.
    To have access to the comics users have to have installed iBooks 1.2 the very least on their iPad, iPhone 3G/4/4S/5 and should be running iOS 4.2 or later. Enjoy reading!

    This is nice but it would never replace the feeling when you were a kid and you could go to a store and buy any comic off of those comic racks,run home and start reading the adventures of your favorite super hero/team.

    Those were the days.
