DC removes “comics” from website URL, social handles; Announcing new website features
Nothing screams a new era for a comics company like dropping “comics” from the name.
DC has officially removed “comics” from its website URL. (Formerly “dccomics.com”, it is now simply “dc.com”.) The company also changed its social media branding. While the official handles still include “comic books” – at least for now – the display name on all platforms has been updated from “DC Comics” to simply “DC”.
The changes reflect the growth of the DC brand and its media beyond traditional comic books. For example, DC’s homepage at press time highlights the next black adam cinema, the DC League of Super Pets cinema, and The sand man series coming to Netflix this week.
“DC.com is a celebration of everything in the DC Multiverse and we couldn’t be more excited for today’s launch,” said Anne DePies, DC GM/SVP. “We’re doubling down on DC’s digital ecosystem and there’s never been a better time to be a DC fan and with this one-stop shop, we’re bringing everything together in one place to easily access and celebrate your fandom.”
The newly revamped DC.com will feature weekly releases of new video content, in-depth editorial dives, fan discussions, digital experiences, and more. The update also syncs DC.com with the company’s online comics subscription, DC Universe Infinite, allowing users to maintain an account on both platforms.

DC is also currently working on new content and features for its DC Community Hub hosted on the website. The site will soon unveil a live chat feature to connect fans in real time. You can also tune in to regularly scheduled content, including:
