July is here, and the comics streaming service DC Universe Infinite has revealed what's coming this month for its subscribers. The biggest single addition would be Dark Nights: Death Metal #7, the finale of DC's last major event (the "anti-Crisis" as it was called), and what set up the DC Omniverse, this new 'Infinite Frontier' era, and overall the bigger picture of DCU going forward.

But for all those changes, there's something familiar, factual, and enticing about another DC Universe Infinite addition this month: the first four issues of the Who's Who Update 1988. These had over 60 profiles of DC characters as they were in 1988, along with some great character pin-ups by DC creators of the time.

From reprints to new, Matthew Rosenberg's DC Black Label title The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox is being released first on DC Universe Infinite then in print, and the DC Universe Infinite version is a 'Director's Cut' containing extra story pages and backmatter. In addition, the last issue of the hit series Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point debuts simultaneously here as well as in print and on regular ala carte digital services.

And showing off the six-month turnaround for almost every other DC comic, the first half of the 'Future State' event comic books are coming to DC Universe Infinite in July. That includes the first issues of Future State: The Next Batman, Future State: Wonder Woman, and Future State: Justice League.

And as a reminder that DC Universe Infinite isn't just home to DC back issues, the second issue of the Milestone revival's flagship title Static: Season One will debut July 19, and the second new title - Icon & Rocket: Season One - will debut July 29. That's in addition to more key issues of the '90s and '00s eras Static, Icon, Hardware, and Blood Syndicate titles making their digital debut over the course of 2021 and 2022.

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).
