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.

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.

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.
