DC Comics has started the new year with revealing the name from the hooded figure from all 52 of the New 52 debut issues in September.  “Her name is Pandora” said DC Tuesday morning.

As of March 2012, all Marvel’s titles will see same day Digital release as print, as reported by Gizmodo.  The only Marvel titles that will not get this treatment will be the MAX line and licensed products such as the Stephen King books.
Archie Comics became the first publisher to go same-day digital release for their entire publishing line in January of 2010, along with offering digital comics for $1 less than their print counterparts. So far, every Marvel and DC same-day digital release has had the same price for both products, though DC comics drop from $2.99 to $1.99 after a month.

Four months in, the DC Comics relaunch seems to be a success. The most recent sales figures show Justice League #1 selling more than 360,000 copies since August, and Batman #1 and Action Comics #1 selling more than 250,000. By contrast, Marvel’s strongest seller was Ultimate Spider-Man #160, which was in the 160,000-copy neighborhood.
