I have noticed that a few comic titles are also referred to as Director's Cut like DC's Final Crisis 1: Director's Cut. I know what a Director's Cut is in the context of film, as discussed here on our sister site.

But what is the meaning of Director's Cut in the context of comics?

1 Answer 1


It does apply to comics, although comics really have no direct correlation to a film director.

The term is applied to any comic that is a reprint of any particular issue with added commentary by the writer or editor, script pages or production related artwork.

Quote from Comicvine:

"Director's Cut comics are special release issues with added content that often includes: writer's commentary, editorials, background information and additional artwork."
