:thinking: What is the DC Book Club?

Each month, DC will post a poll with a selection of flagship titles for fans to vote on reading for the following installment of DC Book Club. Members will have one month to read the title, and return here to discuss with fans. As a bonus, the title that fans vote on will be available on DC Universe Infinite for FREE the whole month of book club!

Additional benefits include:

  • Downloadable digital perks
  • Access to discussion events w/ special guest talent

:thinking: How Does It Work?

Once you join, you will be provided notifications for all future events, so be sure to hit that “Join” button! (More details on that below). Each month Book Club is live, we will host a moderated discussion, led with guided questions.

During the last week of the month, we will be joined by special guest talent to discuss their thoughts on the book, and answer your questions live, right in the comments!

:thinking: How Do I Join?

By completing a few simple steps, you will gain the ability to read the free titles, participate in discussions, and receive live notifications as this post is updated, or members reply to your comments.

  • Step 1: Register an account (No payment required!)

  • Step 2: Visit our DC Book Club group page and click the “JOIN” button :arrow_right: Screen Shot 2021-02-02 at 5.13.45 PM This will ensure you are receiving all our digital perks, and first access questions for talent, as well as provide you notifications for all Club happenings.

  • Step 3: Read & discuss!

:thinking: I’m not hip to this message board jive, dig?

We have a bot for that! Just say @Kelex in the comments below, and our friendly Kryptonian bot will DM you to walk you through how the DC Community works.
We think you’ll like it very much once you settle in, but there’s no need to be restricted to just one discussion platform- You can also share your thoughts on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!


  • Past discussions
  • Past guided book questions
  • Past collections of DC Book Club titles
  • Past digital downloads

*Because we just launched, there aren’t any current past discussions! However, you can visit all the #dcubc , #dcubc-girl-power , and #dcubc-epics discussions run by @MattMcDonald and @JLWWSM to explore the early origins of the DC Book Club.


So, just so I understand, already being a DC Universe Infinite Subscriber, I joined the DC Book Club, I’m good to go?


That’s right, you’re all set! Looking forward to digging into Justice League: The Totality with you :partying_face:


Thanks, @Applejack

  1. Very excited to have Book Club back - I’ve missed it
  2. Over the moon to see that already over 80 people have signed up for Book Club since this got posted! Great to have so many new members and this will only make the discussions livelier and bring more perspectives to the table. Awesome!
  3. Fancy new profile pic, @Applejack! Almost didn’t recognize you there! No more Batgirl? And who is that, exactly? Glad to have you on here as an admin as well.
  4. I hope @MattMcDonald and @JLWWSM are proud of what they started and what it has become. I wear my Book Club badge with pride and am looking forward to the new perks and special guests!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to dive in to the (Scott) Snyder Cut of ‘Justice League: Totality’ to see what my favorite group of heroes are up to this time. I hope Hawkgirl ends up saving the day!


I know what you mean but there’s something about this comment that’s adorable to me. That’s the Oracle symbol! Still Barbara Gordon, but in her green form for St. Paddy’s Day :slight_smile:

I do too- they’re the platinum standard in generally being human!


Welcome to all the new members of the @DCBookClub!

It’s incredible seeing all the new members roll in, and we can’t wait to get started discussing Justice League: The Totality with you.

New to the DC Community? We’d love to hear a little more about you, and what you’d like to see from your FLCBC (Friendly Local Comic Book Club) in the future!

I can start things off- hi! :wave: I go by Applejack, and I help to make sure the DC Community keeps chugging along with new programs, exciting perks, and interesting ways to connect directly with the DC brand. Nice to meet you!

I’m looking forward to having really in-depth conversations around the stories, and discussing our favorite artwork. In the future, I’m hoping that we can also include sweepstakes and even more perks all month long :slight_smile:

Feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself, I’ll be keeping an eye on our Club Room all day to make sure your questions are answered. :heart:


Call me Turok Son of Stone

Turok was an
Native American Indian
Lost in a hidden valley
In the 19th Century
Where dinosaurs still existed
Published by Dell Comics in the 1950s and 60s

The character has been published by many companies since then
But not DC

I was born in 1950
So that is why my name here is what it is

I was around in the Silver Age of Comics

The first comic I bought was the last tryout of the Justice League of America in Brave and the Bold. I bought and still have the original issues of JLA and Lee Kirby Ditko Marvel Comics. They are in poor condition because I read them so much. I loved them so much

Hawkman in Brave and Bold is my favorite comic by Julie Schwartz editor, Gardner Fox writer and Joe Kubert artist.

My favorite era of comic books are

The Bronze Age and
Early Rebirth (2016)

In Our Comic Book Library,
You can Filter by Era

For new DC Book Club members

My Suggestions

Secret Origins the Story of DC Comics

In that hour and a half you will get a good overview of most of our comic book library. It was filmed in.2009 so of course can’t talk about newer than that

I am co leader of the DC History Club with @msgtv. Please consider joining our club. All topics remain open so participate in our polls and quizzes.

The DC History Club
has this video as the topic for the month of September 2020

This is my complete list for New DC Readers. It is intended to introduce most of the major characters of the universe at a basic level. It is by year.

This is my
Batman for new readers

if you want to learn significant events in super hero genre history. Most significant issues are mentioned here. It is by year

if you want to learn how Superman Batman.and Wonder Woman were created


Aww shucks :heart: Thank you! We are very humbled and grateful. It’s beautiful to see how far the book club has come and transformed over the years. Super excited to see this new chapter! :0_book_club:


Awww thank you :heavy_heart_exclamation: I’m so excited for book club!


I rejoin! Sorry @JLWWSM and @MattMcDonald for leaving your great book club!:slightly_smiling_face:


Hi @Reaganfan78 - no need for apologies! Glad you’re back! :smiley:


We’d love to hear a little more about you, and what you’d like to see from your FLCBC (Friendly Local Comic Book Club) in the future!

While I love the dives back into the archives I’d like two things:

  1. Spoiler warnings for the discussion topics/questions. The second discussion question for issues #1-3 is an example of one I’d like to have hidden behind the spoiler shield until after I’ve read it.
  2. The new books that arrive on DCUI. It would be fun to have Book Club be a part of the arrival of Future State and Infinite Frontier when they get here for us to read. I’m sure I’m not alone in waiting for them to become available here rather than buying them all at my Local Comic Shop and discussing them with fellow DC fanatics as they come out would be a blast.

There’s always so much I want to read that it’s tough to pick what I’ll read next and I love Book Club for making that choice for me and taking me to unexpected places in the DC Universe.


Hey! I’m Quadpen but people usually end up calling me Quad, I’m relatively new to comic books, I only got into them around 2016 or so but they’ve become an important part of my life (I’m an aspiring illustrator lol) I’m looking forward to talking about comics with y’all!

Since i have no idea how to end the post I’ll just say to stan impulse and jason for clear skin


:rofl: Well done!


This is great feedback, thank you so much! I agree that it would be a blast to jump into Future State and Infinite Frontier when we have the full series available on DCUI. In the meantime, imma go get those spoilers up :slight_smile:


Since the DC Universe is so huge and has stool the test of time, I think that adding a little direction to learn more would be great. I mean, choose some titles or series that will allow us to learn more about the DC Universe. Thank you. The book club is a good idea.


This sounds awesome™:+1:. I’m in.


Thanks for the feedback, and wonderful to see your thoughts in the book club! To help people learn more in addition to reading new issue, maybe in the future we could include things like timelines, visual maps, and other elements paired with what we’re reading that month?


I’m in! (And btw @Applejack, I love the new avatar.)
