Very cool to finally get the other half of the Batman/ Detective “Idiot Root” crossover. Very much looking forward to revisiting that one.

I’m really excited to see Detective Comics being added and Green Arrow as well! Can’t wait to see The Joker #1 and Superman: Red & Blue! :grinning:

Batman the world is a great deal. Also, future state is getting me excited for comics in a way that I haven’t been in a while, so this is looking quite nice.

I’m still missing some vertigo backlog here, but overall looks good. Thanks.

That Magistrate is a #####, ain’t it? And what was A-Day? We know the results but what actually happened?

I’m enjoying Future State quite a bit as well. Not all of it but enough of it that I’m anxious to see what happens each week and where it all leads into Infinite Frontier.

What am I most excited to read? If I could only read one book on that list it would be ‘Infinite Frontier #0’. For sure. The relaunch of the entire DC Universe coming out of Future State? Yeah, like C&H Pure Cane Sugar…that’s the one.

6 Likes

Yeah, part of me was kind of hoping that much like what they did with Sweet Tooth, they would get Y: The Last Man on the service with the release of the show on FX on Hulu, but hey, can’t complain too much.

We see what happened in Infinite Frontier #0.

5 Likes

I might be wrong but I believe this happened in The Joker War. I also know we find out more about A-Day in The Joker.

If you like Future State, I definitely suggest Future State: Gotham. It is in black and white but that story has been getting better with each issue. I don’t think it is on DCUI yet.

Yup. All 184 glorious pages of Batman: The World will be available on DC Universe Infinite on September 14th :slight_smile:

9 Likes

Thanks, AH! Besides that, I’m also very happy to see some other already-digitized comics will be coming to DCUI: Aquaman #53-56, Detective #639-640, New Teen Titans Annual #2 and, holy crap, it looks like we’re finally going to start getting the rest of Mike Grell’s Green Arrow run on here! :+1:

I’m pleased to see some of the gaps in comics being filled. Still missing a handful from Justice League (87-96) run. It would be nice to see a better balance between Silver/Golden Age comics. While the Strange Adventures was a nice addition-- I bet more people would’ve liked to see some of the gaps in Adventure Comics or World’s Finest instead of SA.

Finally, a complete run of the1st Aquaman series! And those Detective do also fill in key issues. I would like to see more of a focus on filling in some of the bigger holes than obscure books.

5 Likes

Those Green Arrow issues are already available on the app. The series currently has the first 25 issues, then a gap until No. 80.

8 Likes

Hmm, you’re right. Any idea what’s going on with this, @Alec.Holland?

Edit: So, apparently, we have those issues, but Comixology doesn’t. I’m not sure how that will ultimately affect us, though.

4 Likes

I guess for me…

REPRESENT! #12, #13 and #14.

AMERICAN VAMPIRE 1976 #6.

THE CONJURING: THE LOVER #2.

EDIT:

Oh, and probably BATMAN: THE WORLD.

Why are scans being used for the Captain Comet stories in Strange Adventures? These stories were restored for Captain Comet Archives V1

5 Likes

Hey Gotham,

The team that works on the archives and digitization for issues is quite small, so they need to work as efficiently as possible to make sure that archived issues are added to the service regularly.

In this case, it’s far quicker for them to use scans for the issues of Strange Adventures than to locate the digitized versions that are included in the Captain Comet Archives. Based on the links from the site that you shared, it doesn’t look like the digitized version is readily available at the moment, so there’s potentially some licensing issues involved there too.
