DC Universe doubling down on comics offerings

Your DC Universe subscription just got a tiny bit more valuable as the service has announced it is doubling its number of comic offerings.

DC Universe announced on Tuesday that by the end of March users will see the number of comics offered in the app doubled. New titles are already being added immediately, but even more are planned in the coming weeks with thousands of new titles planned to be included.

“When launching DC UNIVERSE we knew the comic reader was an area that we wanted to expand and provide more choice. Fans want a place to discover new titles and the opportunity to enjoy full arcs of iconic and notable storylines from start to finish,” said Sam Ades, senior vice president and general manager, DC Digital Services. “We are listening to fans and responding with an expanded comic book offering that improves the overall DC UNIVERSE experience.”

The titles that are being added immediately include:

Releasing on 1/29:

  • Action Comics (2016)
  • Batman (2011)

New Releases Weekly to Include:

  • Animal Man (Grant Morrison’s Arc)
  • Aquaman (2016)
  • Batgirl (2009)
  • Batman: Hush

  • Batman: Year One
  • Forever Evil
  • Hawkworld
  • JSA (1999)
  • Midnighter & Apollo

  • Superman: Secret Origin

This feels like a logical step for the service. While DC Universe is a lot more than comics, the fact they rotate has been something users have had to adjust to. Whereas the Marvel Unlimited service continually expands, the DC rotation has felt odd. I’ve personally missed a few titles as I wasn’t aware they were about to rotate out. Having them around a bit longer just seems to be the wise idea.
