DC Publish Selection of Digital Comics, Wednesday April 1st

Bleeding Cool just ran DC's statement to comic book retailers, confirming that they will be seeking alternative distribution (and presumably printing as well) during the current coronavirus pandemic shutdown that has seen Diamond Comic Distributors close, their printers Transcontinental close and thousands of comic book stores and bookstores close. As well as getting certain comics to certain comic books stores that are: a) in the USA, b) in states that haven't entirely shut down and c) operating mail-order services, DC has confirmed to Bleeding Cool that they will also continue digital distribution, with a handful of titles being digitally distributed this Wednesday on the DC app, ComiXology, Amazon Kindle and the like.

Which titles will be chosen are still unclear, but the original plan for this Wednesday would have included the following. I understand the selection hasn't been entirely settled upon yet. Here is the pre-coronavirus pandemic list as we had it when last we looked. Might it include a certain cover feature of Punchline?
