I miss the old DC Universe; the selection on HBOMax is fine, but I liked how DC Universe went a little further into the archives of DC film and television.
What would have been fun would have been if when on DC Comics “auto read” mode or whatever they called it, they’d have had a voice cast reading their respective parts with music and sound effects (so… Motion comics, really).

The service isn’t available in my region (which still doesn’t stop them from spamming me with newsletters about what’s coming up on the platform; dangle that pastry in front of the poor kid’s face some more, whydontcha DC). I actually prefer physical as well, but that’s not really an option where I live either. Comixology is a disaster as well.

I’m just saying, before doing fifty different “events” to draw in an audience, perhaps DC would like to create better avenues for prospective buyers to get their books.

I am a subscriber, and I am very pleased with DCUI. I’ve never been a real collector (more of a trades guy myself), so I really enjoy having access to so many uncollected back issues. I was able to read basically everything from the 1986 reboot until the end of the Triangle Era here. Now I understand what fans are talking about when they reference late-80s and 90s era Superman. Great stuff.

Oh, John “The Devil” Byrne’s run… That takes me back.

What I discovered in my experience working for a major bookstore chain was that when the company decided they wanted to try and go all-in on digital the thing they missed is the simple fact there is a tactile element to the experience of reading that is overlooked and grossly underestimated. In addition to that it’s not limited to being a generational thing either. I had customers of various ages tell me that they preferred to have a physical book in hand when they are reading.
