DC Expands Black Label To Cover Reprinted Titles

Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and All-Star Superman are all under the new banner.

DC Comics is expanding the back catalog of its Black Label imprint to include a lot more titles than initially revealed, likely to try to move the public's perception of the imprint toward "classic" DC titles and away from Batman hanging dong.

The imprint is still going to have its own new titles including Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman: Last Knight on Earth, Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Superman: Year One, John Ridley's The Other History of the DC Universe, and Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Jimenez's Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons, but with less Batdick.
