Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We knew it was gonna happen eventually, and this morning the powers that be officially announced that DC Universe, streaming service of Warner Bros. Pictures comics division, will be no more. Instead they’ll become DC Universe Infinite, which will house digital comics, and DC fan experiences and events.

If you’ll recall the recent DC FanDome not-a-comic-con-but-kinda-a-comic-con, DCUI will be like THAT, only with comics. Upwards of 24,000 comic books will be available at launch, and new titles will be added after they’ve already been on the stands for 6 months.

DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee said of the news:


“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint. I’m excited to share that not only will DC UNIVERSE INFINITE members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!”


All of the original programming (tv shows and cartoons) are moving to HBO Max. This is something we knew was coming, so we’re not really surprised by that part of the announcement.

Cost

DC Universe Infinite subscriptions are available to purchase online. iOS and Android devices will run $7.99 a month, or $74.99 a year (which works out to $6.25 a month).

Each DCUI subscriber, existing member, or those joining during the pre-order offer window (by February 1st, 2021) will receive a voucher redeemable at the DC Shop (subject to terms and conditions. Annual subscribers will receive a $25 voucher while monthly subscribers get a cool $10).

DC Universe Infinite will launch in the USA on January 21st, 2021. The global launch is mentioned as sometime in the summer of 2021.
