Expert review

If you’re looking for a way to immerse yourself deeper into the DC Universe, then paying $80 a year to join a community who feels the same way you do is the right choice for you. But if you’re only interested in reading a comic book every once in a while with little concern about exclusive access to events and its online-shop, then this streaming service might not be the best fit.
