DC Comics unleashes a new universe of superhero titles

USA Today reports that “this summer” (presumably the first week of September after Flashpoint ends), DC Comics will release more than 50 new books, renumbered to #1 in a line-wide relaunch. Every book will go on sale digitally the same day it drops in print.

I’m curious. I love that DC is going all-in with iPad comics, but the reading experience needs to be improved a lot. The comiXology-powered apps are very slow, the iPad screen is too small for 10 by 7 inch comics, and the guided panel zoom functionality is a clunky way to compensate.
