    I think moving their community content from YouTube to the app (and putting it behind a paywall) was a huge mistake. While I don't know if they would just make the app free and still provide access to the comic library, it would be nice to see a free app again. They did have a free app, which mostly just linked to stuff that was already on the web, and I did not find it all that great, but they do need more 'free' content if they want this to get people talking and sharing.

    I'm the same.
    Almost all the comics I've read since I started subbing last year have been on DC Universe.
    With a handful of Vertigo, Marvel and Indies on Hoopla, and some old public domain comics on Digital Comics Museum.

    I've bought a few comics physically. Mostly 25-cent bin novelty items at a convention that ended up put away and forgotten about.
    I have bought one or two comics 'off the shelf', but they were trades I got for my brother as a gift.

    Yeah, my takeaway is the site will exclusively be a community for DC fans and offer comics ala Marvel Unlimited.

    I'd be cool with that. But they do need to add more Vertigo and Wildstorm comics and make the app available internationally.
    Oh, and add newer comics too. The one year delay is kind of ridiculous (especially since MU's is "only" 6 months). I'd pay a lot more to have access to current content.

    I actually got a tablet (a cheap one) just for DC Universe. It's become my go-to way to read in bed before I crash. Don't have to worry about keeping anyone awake, passing out on a trade and putting a big crease in it, nothin'. DC Universe is great. I'd hate to see it go.
