What's New on DCUI: June 2021

June here, we’ve got your June here! :mega:
Friends, DC UNIVERSE INFINITE is not messing around this month. We will be:

  1. Releasing the first issue of STATIC (2021) #1 on DCUI the same day it hits the shelf (June 15th) , marking the return of Milestone Comics. :fist:t3: :fist:t6:
  2. Giving you the ENTIRE SWEET TOOTH run to brush up on before the Netflix series release. :deer:
  3. Celebrating DC PRIDE all month long! :00_dc_pride:

Not to mention the usual batch of archive titles, more Batman/Fortnite fun, & more!

In the realm of “Ooooh, HELLO!” from the back catalogue, we’re looking at releases of the old WHO’S WHO line, as well as the moody and psychologically horrific series WASTELAND, written by by John Ostrander and comedian Del Close. The release of WASTELAND honors the festival circuit travels of the documentary FOR MADMEN ONLY about Del Close’s impact on comedy. You can watch the trailer here, but be aware: it’s a little blue. :speak_no_evil:

Enough jibber jabber from us! Read on to find out exactly what YOU’RE excited about! :point_down:

Well, Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe- which is the series we have now- was a character encyclopedia released in alphabetical installments from 1985 to early 1987 to cover every significant personality in the DC Universe, to help readers catch up for the Post-Crisis era. But of course, DC introduces new characters all the time. So once it wrapped up, DC issued a 5-issue update for 1987, including a bunch of characters introduced during the interim, and some that they just missed the first time around. It even provides updates on older entries with new essential story material!

Oh cool, Thankyou! I’m guessing we won’t see Tim Drake, Bane and Stargirl since they came later.:slightly_smiling_face:

8 Likes

We will not! But Tim, Bane, and Stargirl do each have “Who’s Who” style pages in issues of DC’s Secret Files series which ran from 1997-2009:

Tim Drake – Batman Secret Files (1997) [Undigitized]
Bane – Batman Villains Secret Files (1998) [Undigitized]
Stargirl – JSA Secret Files #1 (1999)

Wow.

Wow wow wow.

I think this is one of the best update months we’ve ever gotten, outside of one of the massive comic dumps.

Who’s Who Update is one of the series that I’ve requested in the Print-to-Digital thread, so I’m very happy to see that coming here. Wasteland is unexpected, but definitely something I’m interested in checking out. Great to see Curse of the White Knight continuing, after I think we missed an issue this month (I was getting worried there). And it’s always nice to see more Vertigo and Black Label coming to DCUI.

Love that we’ll be getting 7 archival comics a week, instead of the typical 5. At 3 issues a week, Wasteland will be completely digitized in no time.

Strange Adventures is an interesting choice, and it’s even more interesting that the digitization team is starting with #1. I’m curious how far they’ll get with that series…

Really hoping that we make it to #79, aka my favorite DC Silver Age comic book cover:
