    Honestly I think that Comixology unlimited is the way to go if you read enough series. They not only have the catalogue of material from nearly every publisher, but there is also a discount if you purchase comics. I think DC is 15%? So, if you buy enough comics then it is like you are getting the rest of the catalogue for free.

    I would have done that in a heartbeat but it’s not available in Canada. VPN is not a sufficient workaround as I also need an American credit card.

    I don't think that is true--I have never tried to subscribe to unlimited but I have bought comics on four continents and never needed an American credit card.

    Don’t need it to buy. Just to register for unlimited.

    I looked and you are right--only available in the US. That's really odd because it is not like a television streaming service and it seems they make deals with individual companies.

    Many books have different copyright deals, release dates and even publishers across countries (occasionally the very titles are different), so I’m not altogether surprised regarding comics. It does say they plan to expand, but I expect it’ll be like Netflix—different selection per country.

    That makes sense, but why is the entire catalogue available for purchase then?

    Same reason more music is available to purchase from Apple than “rented” via Apple Music? (just guessing)

    *Groan* The release of SHAZAM! #7 has become a never-ending story. Coupled with the constant delays of Doomsday Clock and Three Jokers, no wonder there are conspiracy theories floating around about TPTB now having it in for Geoff Johns.

    I don't know of anywhere else to put this, so I will just put it here.
    The upcoming animated movie Wonder Woman: Bloodlines will be coming with a new short focused on Death from The Sandman comics.
    Here's the description in the article:
