DC has announced the evolution of DC Universe into DC Universe Infinite, a premium digital comic book service set to launch on Jan. 21.
The premium digital comic book platform provides members with an expanded collection of comics and original graphic novels, spanning more than 80 years of the DC Multiverse. Fans can also download comics, graphic novels and originals for unlimited offline reading on their smartphone or tablet.
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” says Jim Lee, publisher and chief creative officer, DC Comics. “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!”
With access to more than 24,000 comic books at launch, DC Universe Infinite subscribers will also encounter digital-first comics, exclusive access to DC fan events, as well as a steady stream of recently released comics six months after the physical versions hit store shelves.
Subscribers will have earlier access to new digital first comics that include titles such as Aquaman: Deep Dives, Batman: Gotham Nights, DCeased: Hope at World’s End, Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red, Injustice: Year Zero, Shazam!: Lightning Strikes, Superman: Man of Tomorrow, Swamp Thing: New Roots and Wonder Woman 84. Also debuting on DC Universe Infinite will be DC Universe Infinite Originals, including new comic content centered around well-known characters.
Following its initial launch, DC Universe Infinite will begin expanding globally in summer 2021. A fan-favorite community area will be free to all registered and premium subscribers with a full calendar of events planned for 2021. Current DC Universe subscribers will not need to create a new account as their DC Universe login will transfer to DC Universe Infinite.
