DC Black Label size

Should there be / Is there a designation for books of the size of recent DC Black Label books, such as Catwoman: Lonely City?

Mark can correct me if Human Computing feels differently, but that kind of information is not normally tracked in the database.

I don't know for sure if HC still expects imprints to be tracked in the same way that they used to track (for example) Vertigo titles under a separate publisher designation than the rest of DC's output.  It looks like all of the Black Label titles have DC listed as their publisher, and a quick spot check of a couple of titles did not show any of them even mentioning "Black Label" in their entries.  

Again, @Mark J. Castaneda should be able to provide a clear answer on that.

Is this passively agreeing that ComicBase will accept this, or are you just teasing me with frustration and disappointment as I attempt to submit this modification in the notes field and wait to see it officially reflected?  😉

So, newer issues were added to several of the DC Black Lael titles without this identification in the Notes Field.

 

Rather than updating those issues, I have realized that this is actually the wrong way to go about this.  This is breaking one of my database guidelines of minimizing repetition.  DC Black Label isn't something that varies variant to variant or issue to issue, it's something that varies title by title, and as such should really be noted in the Title Description.

 

I'm going to go back and remove my previously entered I.[Notes] entries and would like to request a statement of "DC Black Label" be placed in the Title Descriptions for the following titles

American Vampire 1976
Batman Day Batman:White Knight Special
Batman vs. Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham

Batman: The Smile Killer
