DC Comics To Pressure and Changes Digital Plans For Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic! Only 3 New DC Comics For April 1, 2020 and 6 New Collected Editions!

DC was criticized by retailors, other publishers and creators for having an alternate distribution model for print comics in the works as well as a digital comics plan that was to be the status quo even without same-day print counterparts. At the same time, DC Comics sole publisher Jim Lee also announced a charitable effort on his part personally to help struggling retailors during these uncertain times.

Well, considering all that, DC’s digital plans have changed. Instead of releasing all of its regularly scheduled new comic book content on April 1, 2020 without their print counterparts, Comixology no longer has that DC catalogue queued up; just 3 new comic books are being released which are its digital first titles as follows.
