One of the upsides to 2018 feeling like a year that was never going to end was that it seemed as if there was an eternity to read comics instead of, say, giving into the existential dread lurking within you. With that in mind, let’s look back at some of the best and worst comics moments that pushed us forward and dragged us back through these dark, dark times.


In the months leading up to its launch, DC Comics touted its new Black Label imprint as a part of its publishing arm where big-name comics creators could tell bold, mature stories about its heroes, exploring aspects of their lives that more mainstream titles tend not to.

Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Batman: Damned made the biggest splash, in part, because a few panels featured a full frontally-nude Bruce Wayne. Now DC is wondering if it made a mistake.


If you picked up a physical copy of writer Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermejo's Batman: Damned this week, then you were treated to a passing glimpse of a totally-nude Bruce Wayne in the Batcave. From the sounds of it, DC regrets greenlighting the decision to show off Batman's penis.


DC Comics' approach to handling its multiverse is distinct from most other comics publishers' approaches because of the way it includes a set of iconic stories that, technically-speaking, aren't considered canon. If you like that sort of thing, their new Black Label should excite you. And well, if you're a comic fan, you'll probably also be excited to hear names such as Kelly Sue DeConnick, Scott Snyder and Greg Rucka, just a fraction of the talent involved.
