Beginning in Fall 2012, they’re going to republish DC comics as “reinforced library hard covers and paper-over-board editions … The license includes worldwide English and select Spanish editions for limited markets.” 24 titles, not yet specified, will be included, although since the press release talks about how popular Batman and Superman are, I’m guessing they’ll be part of the list.
Standard comics, like many magazines, are too flimsy to stand up to frequent library use or multiple young readers, so hardcovers will be more durable. It’ll be interesting to see how much they charge and whether they’re going to stick to the 20-page-story length or bind up several chapters at once.
