DC Comics has been an active publisher of comic books since it put out its first book in 1934, back when it was first called National Allied Publications. Over the years, DC has created and published some of the most important characters in the history of the medium, including Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, and many more.
Because the company has been in business for nearly 90 years, there are more than a few skeletons it would like to have remained in the closet. Issues with publishing, writers, artists, and more have sprung up every once in a while, and while they are public knowledge, that doesn't mean DC likes it that way.
Of course, not everything is as well known as some of the company's more public embarrassments, and there are a few things, even the most ardent readers of DC Comics may not know about.
Whether they happened this year, or back in the 1940s, these ten cover-ups deal with problems DC Comics has faced over the years, and while the publisher has overcome its issues as it continues pumping out books, they may not be the last time DC would prefer its fans looked away.
