DC Comics Drops the Comic Code

As of April, DC Comics will not support the “Comic Authority” seal anymore? What does that mean DC Comics will be having a different comic rating system for their comics. No longer will readers see an “Approved by the Comic Authority” badge anymore, but a video game rating – Wait what?

Co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio state that ALL DC Comics will have a different rating system on the cover instead of the Comic Authority badge. This will have the similar “game ratings” that you see on the front and back of video games. E for everyone, T for Teen, T for Teen Plus, and finally M for Mature. DC will be publishing these ratings on their covers on April of this year.
