DC Comics is going to be increasing the cost of their digital comics that come out once a month. The price will be changing from $2.99 to $3.99, although comics that release two issues a month such as Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman will continue to be sold under the old pricing system.
The main reasons why the comics are going to experience a price increase this April is because physical copies of these books will finally come with a “free” digital copy of the same issue, allowing readers to maintain a physical collection alongside building a digital library of books, an avenue of comics reading that’s become steadily more popular than physical books in recent years.
