In a major move, Archie Comics today announced their upcoming Day-and-Date Digital initiative — a landmark move beginning April 1 that makes the company’s weekly comics output available for purchase both in print and digitally simultaneously.

Readers will still be able to purchase new comics in print at their local comic shops every week as per usual. However, the exact same comics will also be available for digital download for $1.99 each through the Archie Comics app from iVerse — available on the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. While Archie and other comic companies have previously offered one or two issues of a comic to readers in print and digitally with the same release date, this marks the first time a company’s entire weekly publishing output will be available in both mediums on the same day.
