The upcoming 12-issue Strange Adventures title by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Evan "Doc" Shaner, and Clayton Cowles has been movd over to DC's Black Label and re-classified as for readers 17 and up. It was previously part of the core DC line and classified for ages 13 and up.
"As Strange Adventures was coming together, we had to take a step back and look at what made the most sense for the project," said DC Group Editor Jamie S. Rich. "Since its tone and themes are more in the vein of Mister Miracle than, say, Tom King’s work on Batman, we decided that it made more sense to give Strange Adventures its own space, where Tom, Mitch, Doc and Clayton could follow the story to all the different places it might take them."
The aforementioned Mister Miracle was part of the core DC line, but was rated "M - Mature" - meaning for readers 17 and up.
"Like Mister Miracle, Strange Adventures is hugely ambitious," said King. "Unlike Mister Miracle, this isn’t another tale of one man’s angst or trauma or recovery. Strange Adventures is fundamentally about something larger, deeper, and darker; it’s trying to speak to the nature of truth and how our assumptions about that nature can tear us apart."
Strange Adventures #1 (of 12) is on schedule to debut March 4.
