I just signed up today and happy to be here.
First thing I have been wanting to get feedback on is the DC’s Black Label.
I am an adult and when I first head of DC Black Label, I was wondering just how the stories could become even more, ‘For adults’. I feel that the Black Label is still in it’s experimental stage, but it missed it’s mark.
Much to my disappointment, Black Labels isn’t working for me. I grew up in the 1990’s where the BTAS was the thing. They told a wonderful adventure without all of the, lets say charming qualities that the Black Label has.
I don’t know if I am missing it, but I don’t like how Black Label isn’t censored. I think the Black Label should be re-explored as maybe different graphic genres. I feel that the Black Label should be redefined as a genre perhaps, instead as a ‘adult’. Is it just me? Because I get that DC can be dark, but Vulgar? Yuk.
I just don’t get it when critics say that the Harley Quinn series is, ‘ground breaking’. In some good ways, yes, but in some very bad ways, no.
To me personally, I don’t think ‘Adult’, should be equal to a X rating, make obscenities normal, have an extreme amount of profanity and excessive violence.
One of my concerns of the black label is the newly popular Harley Quinn Series. I am worried about getting backlash for saying this, but I really don’t approve of the new style.
I like Harley Quinn and was looking forward to seeing what exactly her show was.
But I am just so upset at DC for making a show that was just so uncensored like this. I get that it’s a dark series, there is some violence and it’s noir, but I am just not a fan of the obscenity of the Harley Quinn series. I think DC should separate swearing, extreme violence and profanity, sex jokes and stuff like from The Black Label. to Me, I am an adult and the Harely Quinn series made me feel just disappointment.
If I could put in some feedback: Please either release a censored version, or never do something like this again.
The story can stand on its own because it’s Harley Quinns story. I do love the Easter eggs, the lore and two female leads. But I really do not care for the new style.
What are everyone else’s thoughts on the Black label?
