DC Universe is an unlimited system that has a slew of DC television shows, movies, graphic novels and digital comics. The comic book publisher has just announced that during the past three months, the platform has experienced a 35% gain for people who are just reading comic books.
This month, DC Universe has over 23,000 digital comic books spanning numerous eras of DC, while 18 million comics have been read through the app since it launched in September, 2018. One of the great things about the platform is that DC remastered its backlist inventory in 4K resolution and developed its own native comic reader that has been optimized for every platform, including iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV, as well as the web and mobile web – which will allow each comic to be presented in whatever format best fits the screen it’s being viewed on.

It is nice to see DC is going well on the digital side of things, unlike Marvel Unlimited, which just has graphic novels and comics, DC has plenty of other media content to appeal to users. DC Universe currently costs $7.99 a month or $74.99 for an annual subscription,
