Since DC is looking for other distribution channels it makes sense that they would want a new catalog to highlight upcoming releases. And we are getting just that. According to DC:
“This downloadable, digital-only catalog features solicitation information for DC’s comic books, original graphic novels, collected editions, and collectibles—and that’s just the start!” reads DC’s description.
The “digital-only” designation is yet another sign DC is further embracing the platform.
“In the coming months DC Connect will update and evolve in order to maximize the advantages of its digital format, the publisher continued. “Future issues will include expanded content, featuring talent interviews, preview pages from upcoming stories, behind-the-scenes looks at projects in development, multimedia content, and more!
“The catalog will also have a new look and layout compared to its predecessor, DC Previews, making it more engaging and easier to get the latest intel on current and future DC comic book projects.”
The debut cover of DC Connect features artwork by Jason Fabok and Brad Anderson for August’s Batman: Three Jokers. The full .pdf is downloadable now at www.dccomics.com/connect.
It’s been a crazy few months for the comics industry, and it will be a while before we know what the industry will be like in the months and years ahead!
