DC Black Label is also the declared grouping for November 6's The Dreaming #15 and November 13's House of Whispers #15.

The Sandman Universe titles were the sole remaining titles under the Vertigo umbrella.

Barring some surprise change, effectively the last DC/Vertigo issue was October 23's Books of Magic #13.

When Vertigo's closure was first announced in June 2019, DC said the storied imprint would continue until 2020.

When asked about the situation on Twitter, DC Editor Andy Khouri said at this point "for us it's just a name change."
