DC BLACK LABEL [News]: ‘The Other History’ of the DC Universe.

“The Dean” Gene Selassie

This August, DC Entertainment will start a new imprint called Black Label. The concept is for some of the biggest name creators in the industry to craft out-of-continuity tales on likely the biggest guns of the DCU.

DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in regards to this news. “Creating DC Black Label doubles down on our commitment to working with all-star talent and trusting them to tell epic, moving stories that only they can tell with the highest levels of creative freedom.”

The initiative will be spearheaded by a three issue mini-series titled Superman: Year One written by Frank Miller with art by John Romita Jr.

These are the other proposed titles:

  • Batman: Damned by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo
  • Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Jimenez
  • Batman: Last Knight on Earth by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
  • Wonder Woman: Diana’s Daughter by Greg Rucka and an artist to be announced
  • The Other History of the DC Universe by John Ridley and an artist to be announced.

Whether fans clamor or cringe at the news, these books are sure to be a hot topic of conversation for the foreseeable future.
