American Comics Code
The American Comics Code was a pre-War organization that regulated the content of comic books. Hubris Comics submitted their The Unstoppables series to the ACC for approval, according to uncertain criteria, but completely ignored the organization when it came to its flagship Grognak the Barbarian series, if the absence of the seal from its comic covers is any indication.
Behind the scenes
- The ACC is a reference to the CCA, or Comics Code Authority, an organization formed in 1954 by the Comics Magazine Association of America, which allowed the comics industry to self-censor in lieu of government regulation. The CCA remained the de facto censor until the 2000s, when new publishers refused to join the organization and existing ones started to abandon the CCA. The Authority became defunct in January 2011.
