During DC FanDome we found out that DC Universe would soon become a fan first, comics centric platform. It appears that the expansion and overhaul is complete, because DC has announced a launch date. The best part is, the app will launch in the U.S. this Thursday, January 21st.
When the app goes live, fans will have access to approximately 25,000 digital comics from DC, Vertigo, Black Label and Milestone Media. This includes titles like Batman: Damned, Dark Nights: Death Metal, Lucifer, Hellblazer and others. They have enhanced the comics reader, and will give readers the ability to create custom lists. There will also be DC Digital First titles and earlier access to certain books. Bottom line is, this gives you a chance to fit the app to suit your needs.
Here is the information directly from the press release:
The ultimate DC fan destination has arrived! This Thursday, January 21, DC will launch DC UNIVERSE INFINITE, a premium digital comic book service and community. With the largest collection of DC Comics found anywhere, fans can now dive into over 25,000 comic books and graphic novels on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE. Starting at launch, the platform will continuously add selections from DC’s iconic labels, Vertigo, DC Black Label and Milestone Media, the platform will also feature new comic releases six months after their in-store releases, as well as, Digital First titles available three months after launch, and brand new comic titles exclusive to DC UNIVERSE INFINITE. Additionally, fans will soon have exclusive access to DC fan events to connect with other DC enthusiasts. Following Thursday’s U.S. launch, DC UNIVERSE INFINITE will begin expanding globally later this year.
DC UNIVERSE INFINITE is presented in a sleek, newly designed app with updated personalization features and an enhanced comic reading experience.
