Prior to 1998, merchandise sold by DC Comics was branded with the DC Comics logo rather than with the DC Direct or DC Collectibles logos. The company was called DC Direct from 1998 to 2012. From 2012 to 2020, DC Direct was known as DC Collectibles.
DC Direct is a division of Warnermedia that sells collectibles based on DC Comics characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Joker, Harley Quinn, etc. DC Direct produces statues, busts, action figures, prop replicas, and art prints.
DC Collectibles shares the licenses for many DC characters with other toy manufacturers, such as Mattel (which has the master toy license for all DC Comics properties), but Vertigo figures are released only by DC Collectibles.
