Marvel revises ratings system (again)

Newsarama reports that Marvel is revising its comics rating system, dropping somewhat confusing labels such as "PSR" and "PSR+" in favor of those similar to what Tokyopop and other manga publishers use.

The new ratings will be "All Ages," "T+ Suggested For Teen and Up," "Parental Advisory" and "MAX: Explicit Content."

In the definition of the ratings, Marvel emphasizes that, "MAX titles will NOT be sold on the newsstand, and they will NOT be marketed to younger readers."
