DC has just launched a new website that you can access at DC.com and their old website DCCOMICS will no longer be available. It will will feature “weekly drops of new video content, editorial deep dives, fan discussions, digital experiences, and more. Users can setup profiles to carry over to all DC properties, including DC Universe Infinite digital comic library.
“DC.com is a celebration of everything across the DC Multiverse and we couldn’t be more excited for today’s launch,” said DC GM/SVP Anne DePies. “We are doubling down on DC’s digital ecosystem and there has never been a better time to be a DC fan and with this one stop shop, we’re bringing everything together in one place to easily access and celebrate your fandom.”
DC.com will continue to be the home for breaking news and deep dives on the latest DC releases across comic books, film, TV, video games – all in one place! DC.com will expand to include weekly video content ranging from trailers for upcoming releases to looks back at some of DC’s defining moments across all mediums, plus exclusive talent interviews that you won’t be able to find anywhere else, including:
