    All this talk of the app extending its comic library reminds me, did they actually do the dumb "After X amount of time we'll rotate the books out" thing ?

    They stopped doing that last month. Everything is now up to stay.
    The only exceptions are any of the non-DCU titles that DC Universe has worked up a deal with DC Comics to carry temporarily to promote related shows. Which includes the 1987 Doom Patrol and the 1982 Swamp Thing.

    Still not available in Canada or anyone else outside the U.S. Whenever I go to the site, this is what I get--

    I've been thinking about doing that, but I'm undecided if that's the right thing to do.

    It's common for services to start in one region until they're optimized.
    For video games, it's usually the Asian market (presumably because a lot of US and UK players tend to be whales).

    I think they started with the US because we're more familiar with the material and can help with content organizing and proof checking.

    There were a lot of errors in the catalog because they were adding everything that was put on Comixology over the past 8 years up on their service in just one month.
    Mostly some comic issues filed under the wrong title, like volume 4 #3 in place of a volume 3 #3. Everyone's been pitching in to report issues in the wrong places.
    And they'll be upgrading their forum this summer to be more user friendly.
    I can see why they wouldn't want it global just yet.

    I'd expect something by the end of the year. Especially if WB's service will be more global.

    There's nothing amoral about using a vpn.

    Future Quest #7
    Still enjoying the series. It does have a lot of stuff going on simultaneously, which could probably be a bit hard to keep up with.
    But it doesn't impact the book too much.


    And I watched the latest episode of Doom Patrol.

    And continuing...

    Legends #1
    Moving right along at the dawn of the Post-Crisis DCU...
    A few references to Crisis on Infinite Earths this issue, with Wally thinking of his fight with the Anti-Monitor and Barry sacrificing himself to save the universe.
    It's been a while since I read this book, but it still holds up, despite the panel that introduces the League feeling a bit clunky.
    But then, their intro felt clunky in 1986, also.
    And it features Byrne still in his prime.
    I do like how the cover featured two Titans and a Legionnaire, but no Trinity.

    Batman '66 #1
    Love Jeff Parker. Love the Silver Age lightness. Love the '60s Batman. Love Mike Allred.
    One of the best books DC has put out in recent years.
    I've read this one before. I have a lot of the series in digital on Comixology.
    Going to read it completely and then the crossovers.
    Hope Scooby Doo Team-Up gets to make it to DC Universe. But I can still read them on Hoopla.

    October sounds good.
    The bugs should all be ironed out and the new forum will be set up by then.

    Action Comics (1938) #1 - Superman story only
    I still prefer the re-telling in Secret Origins (1986) #1, but it's always interesting to see Superman before the tweaks from the radio and cartoons made their way into the comics.

    Showcase #22
    Beginning my Silver Age DCU list. Classic stories by John Broome and Gil Kane, including Hal Jordan's first appearance.
    Love the clean line-work of the Silver Age. And Broome is probably my favorite GL writer.
    I also really like the emphasis on normal gangster types in this issue.

    Legion of Super-Heroes (1980) #280
    Think the newness is starting to wear off and I'm beginning to be able to focus on specific titles without being distracted.
    I've read this issue countless times now, as it's my personal 'First Issue' for the Legion.
    Modern readers would probably balk at starting a series in the middle of a story (as the Reflecto story was already going), but this comic was done in a time where 'every comic is someone's first', so everything is explained to where you aren't lost.
    It has a few of my favorite characters featured: Timber Wolf, Wildfire and Dawnstar.
    And the art by Jim Janes was very nice.
