DC black labels

I recently Got Batman Damned as an early Christmas present and it said Black Label on it. Can anyone tell me what that means?

Basically it’s kinda like a trigger warning? It’s a way of saying it may have material in it that some people may find offensive, so that hopefully people won’t give mature material to children then blame DC for it claiming there was no warning.

It’s a line for more mature stories they couldn’t otherwise tell in the regular titles.


Ahh… so that’s why the clerk at B&N told my dad to be careful about giving it to me

They’re also stories that are out of the main continuity. Between that and the mature content, the label is giving creators a lot more freedom to tell stories w/ these characters
