    Default DC Comics Go On Sale On ComiXology At 9 AM - British Time?

    Take a peek folks.

    Just checked, I've just downloaded the new Demon Knights. Ten hours before I would usually have been able to.

    Is this an error? Or the new way of doing business? Let's see how long it takes to get fixed. If it gets fixed.

    Hope this isn't a glitch and Marvel follow suit, I like the idea of being able to read new comics during my lunch break.

    Picked up the new Batman, very happy to have it on Wednesday and not have to wait due to time difference.

    Marvel Comics of the week also visible, but you can't buy them yet.

    New Digital Comics - Marvel Comics

    Seems you can pre-order them though, that's a new one.

    It'll be an error, since they still had the usual "Just Remember All Same Day as Print DC Comics go live at 2pm EST on Wednesday, while all others will be live around 10am" in the releases list this week.

    Of course, they should just release all new comics at something like midnight EST and be done with it.

    I read on another site that someone said this might be the way things are headed in the future, which would be awesome. I work overnights and would love to be able to get my comics as my shift starts.

    My guess is it has something to do with the fact that the Kindle version is also already available.

    Batman #14: Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo: Amazon.com: Books

    Nook version is also already available. DC likely didn't want to give Amazon or anyone else a competitive advantage over Comixology.

    I would like to know if the Kindle Version is also available for customers in the UK. It is NOT available via amazon.de, which is tremendously stupid. The Kindle Fire here in germany is nothing more then a "normal" Kindle with color. It absolutly is not for reading comics since the ComiXology app is not available either.
