DC Universe Infinite Unveils Plans for AAPI Heritage Month

DC Comics revealed the comics coming to DC Universe Infinite in May, with a focus each week on Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month. In addition to selling some Wonder Woman apparel in the DC Shop for Mother's Day, DC has the following lined up for AAPI Heritage Month next month:

Every week in May, DC will celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with collections spotlighting Asian American Pacific Islander creators. All issues of New Super-Man by writer Gene Luen Yang are currently on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE, plus registered members can read all three chapters of Yang and artist Gurihiru's award-winning Superman Smashes the Klan graphic novel. Greg Pak's Batman/Superman comics are available to read along with his Action Comics run, all issues of Amy Chu's Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death are available, and artist Francis Manapul's Detective Comics, Trinity and The Flash comics are recommended reading during May's Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month celebration! Searching DC UNIVERSE INFINITE by your favorite AAPI writer or artist will help you find their DC UNIVERSE INFINITE libraries.

In addition to that, the DC Book Club will read Superman Smashes the Klan and host a Q&A with Gene Luen Yang.

Superman Smashes the Klan will be the pick for the DC Book Club and available to read for free on DC Universe Infinite in May

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
