DC to scrap Comics Code Authority approval for in-house rating system.
Published on Thursday, January 20, 2011 by

Today in a message the Co-Publishers of DC, the comics company announced that as of this month DC comics will no longer carry the Comics Code Authority Seal of Approval.

As of this April, the rating system will be as follows:

“E – EVERYONE

Appropriate for readers of all ages. May contain cartoon violence and/or some comic mischief.

T – TEEN

Appropriate for readers age 12 and older. May contain mild violence, language and/or suggestive themes.

T+ – TEEN PLUS

Appropriate for readers age 16 and older. May contain moderate violence, mild profanity, graphic imagery and/or suggestive themes.

M – MATURE

Appropriate for readers age 18 and older. May contain intense violence, extensive profanity, nudity, sexual themes and other content suitable only for older readers.”

This change will not effect comics published under the Vertigo imprint which already, and will continue to carry, the “For Mature Readers” advisory.
