We knew this was happening as a result of the DC Comics Universe App, even though it’s only available in North America. But tonight, ComiXology has sent out a message that the DC Comics App that they manage is to close. Customers will still be able to transfer functionality and their purchases to be read on ComiXology on their devices, but they will lose the in-app purchase ability that was stripped from ComiXology a while ago. The letter reads as follows;
Thank you for being a loyal DC fan. We wanted to let you know that the DC Comics app on iOS and Android will be closing on July 28, 2021. You will still be able to read all of your previously purchased DC comics in the comiXology app but you have to make sure that your DC comics are connected to a comiXology account. Connecting your DC Comics library to a comiXology account will ensure that all your favorite superheroes and villains will be waiting for you within the comiXology app.

There’s a lot of consolidation going on, in the light of the Warner/Discovery buyout, this is just one of the many minor impacts that will be felt all over the place. A centipede’s worth of shoes ready to start dropping.
