DC DJs Drop Hot Playlists

8 Jun 2016 - By TW Staff

After dropping the mic with DC Universe: Rebirth, DC Comics is now dropping red hot music from across its illustrious history.

DC recently launched its Spotify profile, with a debut playlist assembled by artists Ethan Van Sciver and Gary Frank, and inkers Joe Prado and Matt Santorelli. The common denominator? All tracks inspired the creators and informed "the birth of a universe" in the new Rebirth series of comics. From Billie Holiday and Radiohead to Hans Zimmer and Benny Goodman, the debut tracks fire up both the charts and the imagination. Click here to sample the full playlist. 

Now, DC has announced  The Music of DC Comics Vol. 2, a 29-track "mixtape" album of favorites culled from the history of the DC Universe.
