I was just curious what everyone’s thoughts were on the significance of DC’s Black Label? I personally was extremely excited for this when it was originally announced, especially since the books would focus on darker, more mature content and be aimed towards adults. No spoiler here that DC Universe has done that with Titans and Doom Patrol with the infamous first trailer of Titans having Dick infamously saying ‘■■■■ Batman’ and everyone loved it! Yet with Batman Damned there is a moment where you see Bruce naked and to quote the Joker ‘everyone loses their minds’… and so the book was recalled and edited and then content from the second book was removed and had to be rewritten/redrawn due to the controversy with the first book. So with DC Black Label finishing up Batman Damned soon and releasing Last Knight and Superman Year One next. my question is why is it DC Black Label if it’s just going to be censored anyways? These books were something I was really excited about but now I feel like I know they’ll be watered down versions of what they were originally intended to be. It’s sad that we can have shows like Titans and Doom Patrol where anything goes, or at least they don’t hold back, and yet these books that are supposed to be for mature readers get censored and have to have guidelines. With that being said I’m sure I’ll enjoy the Black Label books, but at the same time Dceased isn’t a Black Label book, and you can see more of Dr Manhattan in Doomsday Clock than the one page of Bruce kn Damned, but no one says anything about that. So is it just a marketing tool to sell books? I just don’t get it, and was just curious what everyone else’s opinion was on these books and if there should be a DC Black Label if the content just ends up being censored even though it’s for mature readers.
