Seems like an odd move, unless the number of subscribers is just too few to support the service.

I'm wondering if that is the case - bulk magazine mail not being inexpensive to deal with and online comics stores selling you all of the titles you want from any publisher and all that.

I guess there's a break even point on how many issues are profitable to mail out

Considering that they were only offering something like half of the New52 to subscribers...I find this move extremely odd.

And wtf am I going to do with Batman: The Dark Knight when I want JLD?

Ask for a refund.

The 17 Remaining DCU Subscription Titles

Oy, this makes me really glad I found a new LCS and set up a new pull list there a few months ago :(

Currently the only comic I still subscribe to is Justice League and if DC is indeed pruning and possibly completely eliminating their print comics subs I suspect that would be one of the last comics ending that way and I would then have to make a decision on whether to add it to my pull list or drop it :confused:

outside,

I would recommend contacting DC subs ASAP and depending on what you prefer either asking if you can get a refund for your remaining issues or if there's another sub comic you'd rather have instead of DK you ask if you can get that one in its place ;)

Good thing there are digital comics. :D

Sigh...there are somethings I'd just prefer to have as physical objects...

Hmm, but yeah, guess its time to go 100% digital.

Well, given some feedback, you might say that we reviewed the list and Aquaman might be “off the hook”.
