why did DCU remove Grant Morrison’s animal man series?

Why would they remove books that they own? Was just curious what the reason was?

The book was part of the Vertigo Imprint. DC Universe doesn’t carry any Vertigo due to licensing reasons. Jeff Lemire’s New 52 Animal Man, however, is on here and is a really good read.

Ah, ok that’s what I figured since the old school Hellblazer isn’t on here either. Thanks.

Wouldn’t that be the dream…if you told people they could read Sandman or Transmetropolitan, etc. for such a deal…hint hint but there’s probably a few issues (pardon the pun) to sort.

DC needs to figure something out. I recommend the app to friends that don’t know the history of DC superheroes with Wildstorm(Planetary and the Authority as examples). The Vertigo imprint is another way to get new readers for the same reason. No bogged down continuity…stories that stand on their own…when I was managing a comic shop and new customers came in that wanted to read a non superhero story I gave them the first Preacher TPB and EVERY ONE of them came back for the next volume. From there I gave them Fables, Transmetropolitan, Sandman, Y the Last Man…

We’re sorry for any frustration that this has caused, @kalelofne80. As @Dexertebigboi explained, some content is removed or circulated out due to licensing concerns.

We do appreciate your question and for the passion that you have for Grant Morrison’s Animal Man series. Thank you so much for reaching out. <3
