Great news for all our manga fans out there!
DC is teaming up with Japanese publisher Kodansha to release translated editions of Joker: One Operation Joker, Superman vs. Meshi, and Batman: Justice Buster — all of which will debut the platform’s new manga reader feature! This content has been made available to all DCUI subscribers, regardless of subscription tier, and will update with new chapters weekly.
Not familiar with how it works? Don’t fret!
When visiting any of the titles mentioned above, you'll be prompted with an instructional window for how to best consume manga content here on the platform; unless you're already a manga-reading pro, in which case you can dismiss it and dive on in!
In addition to the Kodansha titles, several current manga titles available on DCUI have also been converted for compatibility with the new reader, including all three volumes of Batman the Jiro Kuwata Batmanga and Batman and the Justice League Manga, plus the complete Batman: Death Mask.
What will YOU be reading first? Let us know in the comments below!
Oh this rules. Very excited about this! Can’t wait to check out One Operation Joker, the comic where Batman becomes a baby and Joker raises him. This pitch is a fever dream.
I love DC and I love manga, so I am down for this.
Superman vs. Meshi is quite the tasty read so far and has me hankering for a rice bowl for a late breakfast.
I was thinking of you when I saw this! Weren’t you just recommending all 3 of the other manga titles to @FelixLeiter the other week?
(Also, Felix, these will be perfect for your upcoming trip to Japan — unless you’re already there! )
I’m definitely looking forward to reading them, can’t wait! The Joker story look very interesting!
Looking forward to these.
This is awesome! Thanks for doing this!
Cool, should be fun to read something wildly different from what we usually get.
Just read the first 3 a great experience, enjoyed it, look forward to more.
I sure was! Pleasantly surprised to see the product team remembered to implement them all into the reader.
Cool stuff! I’ve always wanted to read the weird joker and bat baby manga and now I can on DCUI!
Is this what gets me into manga, finally? The answer is yes.
If thou should seeketh more manga for thine reading consumption, I knoweth a fellow who can maketh recommendations to thou.
Cesar Romero’s Joker summed-up my thoughts on Superman vs. Meshi Chapter One:
“How perfectly delicious!”
It was light and fun and had a soupcon of whimsy and humor as well.
Then there’s the food. Great Rao, the food.
I can’t remember the last time I developed such a hunger while reading a comic, but Krypton alive, I could definitely go for some yakatori.
SN: I liked the DC Nation Spotlight on Hawkgirl.
It was already one of my most-anticipated Dawn titles and that wee, teeny-tiny look has amplified my anticipation even more.
SN 2: Be it deliberate or by complete coincidence, a Superman manga making its DCUI debut during the initial episodes of My Adventures of Superman and its anime shine is pretty sweet.
Up, up and away to Batman: Justice Buster #1!
When reading the Joker Manga comic, the Joker look like a mix design of Heath Ledger with Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.
I don’t want to spoil the story, it was very interesting, and it was interesting to turn the pages backwards instead of forward!
I’ve been aware of this since before it was published in Japan, and new the translations were forthcoming from a few months or so back, so great to see that it’s finally done and looking forward to these!
You can just feel the “What am I doing here” energy from Batman here.
I am so excited to read all of these!
Thank you for this, I have been wanting to read Operation Joker ever since I heard about it, happy to see the other manga getting added too.
I really liked the first issue of Operation Joker, can’t wait for more.
