The comics catalog on DC Universe is about to get a whole lot bigger. Starting this week, about 10,000, comics will be added to an increasingly comprehensive catalog that already includes thousands of back issues for subscribers.
As part of DC's continuing efforts to bring its entire digital library to the platform, a statement on the official DC Universe message board announced that thousands of issues would be "rolling out" in the coming days and included a massive list of the comics coming to DC Universe.
While the platform added nearly 3000 older issues last week to its already considerable library, this update focuses on comics from the mid-1980s to the early 2010s.
The update includes hundreds of issues of Action Comics and Adventures of Superman. It also includes numerous issues of Batman and fan-favorite Batman Family titles like Azrael, Catwoman and Batgirl from the 1990s and the 2000s.
The update also includes full runs of more obscure fan-favorite titles like Chronos and The Question and complete crossovers like "DC One Million."
DC Universe is adding all of those comics plus many, many more, as part of its promised efforts to DC's entire digital library, which includes roughly 20,000 comics, on the service. While a handful of issues are still missing for one reason or another, this is a massive leap forward in DC's efforts to make the comics that can get lost in long boxes more widely available digitally.
As another part of the update, developers are still trying to get all of the bugs out of its searching and sorting function to make the comics easier to find.
The comics are expected to begin landing on the DC Universe service over the course of the week.
