It took that long for DC to abandon the Comics Code?

A decade after Marvel did this, DC is canning the Comics Code Authority symbol as well. But by now, it's more than a decade too late, and the least of their problems. I also suspect that no matter what rating they give to any title they publish, it may be fall way short of the proper rating and description needed to let anyone know just what galling content, violence or otherwise, is inside.

Labels:

Man, I didn't even think they still had the logo on anything except Archie.

They really took the teeth out of the Code, didn't they? And it seems like the books became progressively less readable as they chipped away at it.

This new 'adult' stuff is more braindead and juvenile than an episode of Barney.

Waitaminute: All that beyond-the-pale bloodshed and violence from DC the past few years was under the Code? (Ex: Steel's family in JSA, the stuff in Brightest Day)

Wow. I can see why they'd cancel it. Not like it was serving any useful purpose if that was allowed...

Well at least the pot shot by Archie Comics President Mike Perdillo is really funny

“The code never affected us editorially the way I think it did other companies,” he said. “You know, we aren’t about to start stuffing bodies into refrigerators or anything. We have to answer to Archie fans.”

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
