DC Universe is rebranding as DC Universe Infinite and will focus entirely on digital comics. Its TV shows and premium video content, Harley Quinn (which has been renewed for a third season), Doom Patrol, and Young Justice will move across to HBO Max.
DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee stated:
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint, I’m excited to share that not only will DC UNIVERSE INFINITE members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!”
The premium digital comic book service boasts a substantial library of over 24,000 comic books at launch, which includes single issues as well as graphic novels spanning the 80+ years of the publisher’s history. DC is also promising digital-first comics, exclusive access to DC fan events, and a steady stream of recently released comics six months after the physical versions hit store shelves. Fans can also download comics, graphic novels and originals for unlimited offline reading on their preferred device.
Marvel Unlimited now has some competition!
If you currently have a DC Universe subscription, you don’t need to do anything – your current login and information will transfer over to DC Universe Infinite, which launches in the U.S. January 21 and worldwide (finally) in the summer of 2021.
