I don't have the book nearby, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't a Comics Code Authority label on the cover.

And to be honest, for the past few years, everytime I'm in a comic store, the kids seem to flock to the Johnny DC titles while the adults tend to go for the main titles.

And I hate to sound naive, but what happened to parental responsibility? It is the parents' job to make sure that their childrens' entertainment is what they deem appropriate. No one elses.

Normally I would agree with you, but the fact is that superhero comics have been an acceptable form of children's entertainment for decades. The only parents that would even be aware that JLA is now aiming for adult content are those parents who are also comic readers(and how many could there possibly be). How many doctors, lawyers, executives, firefighters and cops do you think take time out of their day and say, Gee I better start reading comics just in case they aren't for kids anymore. No, DC has a moral responsibility to ensure that as many parents as possible are informed about THEIR COMPANY'S decision to go adult content, deviating from two generations of history. They haven't, and they won't, because the truth is that they want as many people as possible to buy whatever they're turning out, even if it's kids.
