DC’s revised and rebranded comics subscription service, DC Universe Infinite, will officially launch this Thursday. Formerly known as DC Universe, the service will feature comics, as its video programming, like Titans, Doom Patrol and the Young Justice cartoon, have all moved over to HBO Max.
In addition, the community forum can be found outside the app at community.dcuniverseinfinite.com, while the store will also live at a new web address: https://shop.dccomics.com/. It’s up and running with several T-shirt designs, masks and more.
DC Universe Infinite will be available for iPhone, iPad, Android Phone and Tablets and online for web and mobile web at dcuniverseinfinite.com. Some platforms it was on before, like Apple TV and XBox, for example, no longer carry the app as of last month.
So, for the service itself, that leaves comics, and DC is adding a whole bunch of them to the service this week.
So what’s coming? You can find a complete list of the new drops here, but some of the new stuff includes graphic novels like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Green Lantern: Earth One, as well as full series like iZombie and Ex Machina. In the future, they also plan to add Milestone media content, like Static, Icon and Hardware. There’s also recent Black Label titles, like The Last God, Superman: Year One and all of the Joe Hill-curated Hill House comics.
The cost for the service is $7.99 a month or $74.99 if you pay for a full year, which was the same price for the original DC Universe service that included the video content. Marvel’s similar service, Marvel Unlimited, costs a dollar more a month, but the yearly price is $69.
If you’re looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet of comics and don’t mind waiting a few months for them –the platform will feature new comic releases six months after their in-store releases, as well as DC Digital First titles available three months after launch — then it’s certainly not a bad deal. I spent $7.99 on a single comic today from DC. They also promised to have DC Universe Infinite exclusive comics, but no details on those have been released yet.
