The DC Universe streaming app has quietly launched a couple days early. The comic selection for the library is baffling. There seems to be little rhyme or reason to it. Could be that they’ll flesh it out, but considering they have no original streaming content to highlight on release, you would think they’d want to wow with the comic library as a selling point.
Just some examples of what’s currently up:
25 issues of Hitman (which puts you somewhere in the middle of the 5th Hitman tpb)
36 of the first 38 issues of Robinson’s Starman (it’s randomly missing #5 and #24)
The first 24 issues of the 80s Doom Patrol (Morrison’s starts at #19, so it leaves you an issue short of what’s in the Crawling from the Wreckage tpb as that was #19-25…the newer collected edition was 19-34)
The first 3 issue of Crisis On Infinite Earths (who knows why)
There’s also a smattering of first issues of series. Basically it’s a mess right now and if it’s an indication of what they plan to ultimately offer with the service it’s definitely not going to do too well.
