DC's streaming service — DC Universe — has seen readership go up to 35% between February and April of 2020 according to a press release put out by the company. To entice new subscriptions, and to keep old subscribers happy, DC now also boasts 23,000 comics for fans to read on their platform. DC offers both new and vintage comics, such as the famed Detective Comics #27, Action Comics #1, Sensation Comics #1, and more. Fans of the heralded superheroes can truly dive into their origins with the number of comics available on this app. Since launching in September of 2018, over 18 million comics have been read via the DC Universe.
The two most popular books for April were White Knight #1 and The Batman Who Laughs #1.

I've been a fan of the streaming service since I signed up for it in March. I've read countless titles on the app, and have watched several shows and specials via my Xbox. Growing up, I was a massive fan of DC Comics, and this app has helped me rekindle my love for these comics. Plus, there are just hours of great content to keep you occupied!
