The premise of the All Star imprint is to partner DC Comics' top tier characters with the most popular and acclaimed writers and artists. The creators have access to all elements in the characters' histories and to present their interpretation for a modern audience that have not read these DC characters' comics previously, or had not seen them lately. The creative teams are not beholden to any previous and present continuities, and will tell stories that feature "the most iconic versions of these characters." All All-Star Titles exist within their own continuities, separate from anything else in the DC Universe.
Although at one point it may have been an independent publisher, this company is or was owned by DC Comics, and used as a DC Comics Imprint. This template will categorize articles that include it into the Imprints category.
