DC Black Label is a DC Comics imprint established in 2018 that specialises in providing unique, edgy, and provocative standalone stories based on DC Universe characters, in the tradition of defining works such as All-Star Superman, Watchmen, and DC: The New Frontier.[1] It was intended to allow writers and artists the opportunity to tell their definitive DC stories without being constrained by continuity or age ratings. The imprint publishes prestige original limited series, both canon or otherwise,[2] as well as reprints of critically acclaimed graphic novels.[3] Since 2019, Hill House Comics, the stand-alone horror imprint, is also published under DC Black Label.
