DC has released its slate of new additions to the DC Universe Infinite flat-rate digital comics reading service for the month of May 2021. Not only are they adding recent comics just two months after their release, they're also adding some classics and cult-favorites for the past - some just for fun like some classic late '60s Frank Robbins/Irv Norvick Batman issues, but some to celebrate a special month.

May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, DC have added the complete New Super-Man series, as well as works from AAPI authors such as Greg Pak's Batman/Superman run, Amy Chu's Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death, and Francis Manapul's The Flash.

Also, DC Universe Infinite fans are getting a special comic the same day it hits shelves for individual sale: Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point. The DC/Fortnite crossover has been a surprise hit for comic retailers, but just the latest hit for Fortnite and its massive fanbase.

DC Universe Infinite currently has over 25,000 comics on its service, and is available in North America on the web, as well as iOS and Android platforms. The service is $7.99 per month, or $74.99 per year (that's over a $20 saving).
