I’m new to comics and I couldn’t be happier with this app!!! It’s really great and I recommend DC as a starting place if you’re looking for a new hobby.
DC is the best 5/5
Since DC is, without question, the greatest comic book publisher, it only makes sense that their app is great. It's easy to browse, search, purchase and read books. Terrific app.
Lossy Compression Algorithms 2/5
I can’t prove it, but in at least the issues I’ve purchased, DC seem to be applying a lossy compression scheme (think JPEG or similar) to the digital representations of their comics. This results in ugly compression artifacts that make reading an unpleasant experience. It's simply never acceptable to use lossy bitmap compression for text or hand-drawn color graphics - there are existing lossless algorithms that compress nearly as well and cause no drop in quality from the reference material. I have no doubt DC want the experience of reading a comic on an iPad to be just as good as reading on paper, and I'm optimistic they will make fixing this defect their utmost priority. Until that time however, I simply can't recommend this application.
Best since sliced bread! 5/5

Love this app!! The best way to stay connected to comics when you can't get the physical copy!! Easy to use!!
I never thought I'd read comics digitally 5/5
I've been reading for almost 30 years and when digital came on the scene I thought it couldn't replace actually holding and reading a comic in your hands but I have to say, it's a new experience and this app is just fantastic. It works great on my iPhone and iPad.
It’s a comic reader 4/5
It’s serves its purpose and is very convenient. The interface can be a little wonky at time. Hopefully they keep updating.
Could be a great app, but ... 3/5
EDIT: My review below is for a very old version. I've been using the regular ComiXology app since, and I've not tried the most updated version(s).
This app loses one star for frequent crashing.
It loses a second star for offering the first issue of some older series (Like "52"), which succeed in getting me interested, but then not having the rest of the series available! Why bother teasing us with the first issue of a series (in some cases for free) if the rest (which have been published long ago) are not made available?
That said, it is super-cool to be able to download these older series from my comfy chair at home. I'd love it if they made the trades available so you can get the whole series at once.

Cool App Bro 5/5
Cool App Bro
Being a lifelong comic reader and collector, I love the D.C. App! Allows previews, knowing I can download the newest stories every Wednesday, and the ability to move comics on and off my device to control storage. Best way I can think of to get my weekly D.C. Comics!
It's great. 5/5
Sometimes it can be a bit glitchy but it's usually not a problem and the app is overall great. Also it's cheaper because it's direct to consumer, which means buying more comics and more reading. And also I am currently walking around with over 700 comics in my pocket. That is all.
It's complicated.. 2/5
All right. Let me start by saying I've been a HUGE DC fan since 1973. I didn't even read my first Marvel until the 1980s. Even then DC was always number one in my heart. So as far as the content goes and the readability of the comics, I couldn't love this app more. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to see each panel much larger than it is on the printed page – it makes good art especially enjoyable!
But I also have the marvel universe app and for about $70 a year I get thousands and thousands of comics. It's just an unbeatable value.
As far as monetary value, the marvel app just blows DC out of the water! I have downloaded about 2000 DC comics, the vast majority of which cost $.99 each but a significant number were $5.99 or more. In the past three years I've spent about $2100 on DC Comics and $210 on Marvel comics. 10X more on DC. What?
And what I've got to show for it is about 2000 DC comics at my fingertips and about 20,000 marvel comics at my fingertips.
OK, if I accept that injustice as being the price I have to pay for being a DC fan, couldn't they at least mitigate the pain by offering a sale every week? Why doesn't DC Comics offer a sale on digital comics every single week???? It would cost them Jack squat and they would garnish some goodwill in addition to beaucoup bucks!
Just a quick complaint that they only put Vertigo comics on sale maybe twice a year if you're lucky. Again, costs them nothing/beaucoup bucks.
Great digital app for when I don't live near comic book stores... 5/5
This is a great digital app that allows me to keep up with the latest comics and graphic novels now that I live 40 minutes from the nearest comic book store. Also, DC has better written comics on superheroes than Marvel. Now if they could only make better movies....
Wonderfully Accessible 5/5
By Super Tadhg
In this day in age, learning to recycle and use less organic materials is an important part of living and keeping our planet healthy. This app is a great tool if you are one who values saving paper. The app's enhanced comic reading tools may be even more suitable to readers who just want to experience the stories in a cinematic way. Get up close and personal with your favorite heroes and not only see them take their heroic journeys, but become intrigued by the art and emotions that have been carefully placed into each comic series. If you love DC comics, download this app and love them even more! Now is a better time than ever! #Rebirth
Great app 5/5
It's very nice to have when you don't have a comic shop near you I enjoy using this app daily
Useful 👍🏼 5/5
By Everyday using
So useful. Who needs physical copies anyways?
D.C. Has Superman 5/5

Great App 5/5
This app is a great alternative than physical comic books
I love DC rebirth 5/5
Great stories all around.
Great app, great comics! 5/5
By A$VP Turtle
If you love DC comics you gotta love this app, it provides full detailed comics on the go without worrying about bending or ruining your actual books, plus the books are usually disounted since printing costs are gone. I recently found that infinite crisis and crisis on infinite earths is in here so It really has EVERYTHING you could ask for.
For Die-hard DC Disciples 5/5
This app is great! Yes, we should be supporting our local comic retailers...but when on the go, traveling abroad, or when you just can't wait until tomorrow to find out what happens in the next issue of your favorite book-- this app is perfect! Easy to navigate, I can't think of anything even remotely bad to say about this app. Get it
great app 👍 4/5
DC Comics app 5/5
By Dr. Mike Dunn
I love this app!! 5/5
It's great. Does what's it's supposed to
Wonderful functionality , great library of books to purchase , always up to date on the newest releases
Can't live without
An App That's Both Super and Wonderful. 5/5
There's a lot to love about this app, and it's a must have for any DC fan that wants to do their reading digitally. It gets better with every update, and I love the amount of content that they have in their digital libraries.
It's awesome 5/5
The app allows me to read the new issues weekly and catch up on older stories easily without paying collectible print prices.
DC Comics 5/5
By Moose Landwalker
Great app! I need an iPad but still works great on my phone. I like buying whatever superhero comic catches my attention. Right now it's Titans and Superman.
If you love DC it's a must have App 5/5

Best way to read DC comics besides holding them in your hand
THE DC Comic book app 5/5
Although I believe there's nothing better than having a physical comic book in your hands to read and collect, the affordability and convenience of this app is a close second. And although your money doesn't go towards supporting a local comic book store, it does go towards supporting DC and the comic book medium. The pricing is fair and the app has little to no glitches. All of this adds together to make this THE app to read D.C. Comic books... literally.
Really enjoy it 5/5
Great app for keeping up to date on current D.C. Runs and for reading the classics
Can't ask for anything better. 5/5
By Little Robbie V1
With a busy schedule, it's hard for me to get to a shop and spend time looking at books. This makes it much much easier to see what came out, download it, and go.
This has so many comics and stuff except you have to pay for all the good ones. The pictures just say download so I figured they'd be free and you just have to download but that's not the case. I wouldn't get this app just because of that
Will not disappoint you
The go-to app for DC Comics! 5/5
I have to take the time and shout out the team at Comixology for their' fantastic customer support! I've been using this app for years and have a massive digital collection. I've encountered a couple of issues here and there and they responded literally within minutes of my inquiry!
This app is by far and above the best place to read DC Comics. The library features and interface alone are worth it, but to be able to read on a device and easily pick up in seconds on another device, there's nothing better. These guys and gals did it right!
First, if you read any DC books, this app will be your best friend. Digital comics allow me to collect my favorite titles in print and read in beautiful HD color in a way I was never able to before. I'm an avid collector and would rather not crack open my Batman #608, or Superman #232 to read when I feel like it, and this app allows me to enjoy them without de-valuing the book!
One perk of this app over others, you can purchase directly through it with Touch ID and your Apple ID. No signing in online and fiddling with purchases, waiting for them to sync over so you can read. It all happens in app.
Best reading experience will happen with an iPad Pro or Air model. Sometimes I like catching up or re-reading on the phone and the guided view is perfect for either experience! No more guessing what panel the writer meant for you to see next.
The latest update sadly has some oddities with loading new releases and syncing to the account at times but a simple close and re-open resolves it!
Thanks DC & Comixology!
At my fingers 5/5
Love having almost every DC comic right at my fingers
dc comics 5/5
This app gives me all the options to pick through new comics and old comics I give it a 10/10
DC Reigns 5/5
I've loved DC since I was a child. There is nearly no comparison in storytelling.
Great app. 5/5
Great app. Very easy to use.

Only place I can buy comics
Better than Comixology's App 5/5
By Mad Monk 11
You can actually buy comics from within the app. Then when I go to the Comixology website, my titles I bought in this D.C. App are all there. Otherwise the format is like the Comixology app and the Marvel app with the smart lists and guided view and everything. It looks like everybody is working together.
Nice way to read comics 4/5
The price for the comics is nice and I love using this. I wish they had some more issues of some of the series but awesome nonetheless.
All my favorites in one place 5/5
No more boxes and boards taking up shelf space. No more thumbing through comic after comic looking for the one comic in particular. It's all here in my phone or on my tablet. I love it.
The Best thing to happen to a deploying comic fan! 5/5
I spend a lot of time overseas and i usually dont have time to go to a comic store and buy all the comics i missed while im gone. Now, especially after DC Universe Rebirth, i can stay up to date on the great stuff DC has been putting out. And the guided view option makes the storys play out like a movie storyboard and keeps the cells from a whole page from spoiling what happens next before its supposed to. Its awesome at controlling the flow and pace. Absolutely worth every penny if you are a reader more than a collector. I love it!
