What's New on DC Universe
February Announcements and Picks
Updated: February 14, 2019
DC Universe is a first-of-its-kind digital experience designed for DC fans.
DOOM PATROL PREMIERES FEBRUARY 15
Doom Patrol reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (Brenden Fraser), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby) and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence.
Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (Joivan Wade), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani. Doom Patrol premieres February 15 with new episodes every Friday, only on DC Universe.
A THOUSAND MORE COMICS ADDED
DC Universe has added over a thousand more comics so you can read full story arcs, iconic stories and recent titles including Batman: The War of Jokes and Riddles, Superman: For Tomorrow and Justice League: The Darkseid War and more added weekly.
All subscribers now have access to thousands of new titles curated from the decades of rich storytelling of iconic superheroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, that make up the DC library.
The new selection will include titles that fans have asked for along with a significant increase in the number of full story arcs and complete series runs. The overall volume of choices will more than double by the end of March and builds on the list of long-time fan favorites, including thousands of select DC single issues representing legendary story arcs from 80s classics to the New 52, DC Rebirth and beyond.
"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."
