DC is teaming up with Webtoons to create all-new standalone webcomics for all readers, featuring many characters from across the DC Universe.

Our shared goal is to create fun and compelling DC stories that all readers will enjoy. This partnership is another example of DC’s ambition to “meet fans wherever they are” and continue to share DC’s fandom.”
“This collaboration is a milestone for us as we work towards a new era of digital comics in the United States,” said David Lee, content manager at Webtoon US. and we look forward to sharing more details soon.”
