(April 23, 2019 – Burbank, CA) – After the addition of thousands of comics in recent weeks, today DC Universe announced the full availability of the ultimate DC digital comics library. DC’s vast library encompasses more than 21,000 single issue comics published over 80 years. The price of DC Universe remains unchanged and now includes the added benefit of all the DC comics members can read, even view on a big screen, enjoying every vivid detail. Individual issues published 12 months prior to any given date are now available on DC Universe and new additions will arrive every month following a 12-month publication date.
Deciding how to dive into the thousands of titles is easy with curated content and editorial collections highlighted for members on the comics page of the DC Universe digital service. Each week, DC Universe provides comic book recommendations that tie to current or upcoming films and series, or guides members to the origin material for upcoming originals, allowing DC fans to delve deeper into the complex Super Hero stories that come to life on this first-of-its kind service.

“DC Universe is so much more than great video content; it's a portal to dive deep into the ever-expanding stories and art of comics. The ultimate digital comic book library deepens that engagement and discovery by giving fans even more access to the multiverse of DC,” said DC Universe Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sam Ades. “Given the expansiveness of the additional digital comic books we’re adding, we are excited to include more tools and recommendations to help fans jump in and explore their DC Universe.”
