DC Black Label aims to produce a new generation of classics, unrestricted by canon or DC continuity. And boy, has it taken advantage of that. The Caped Crusader is letting it all hang out in Batman: Damned #1.
“The Joker is dead.
There is no doubt about that. But whether Batman finally snapped his scrawny neck or some other sinister force in Gotham City did the deed is still a mystery.
Problem is, Batman can’t remember…and the more he digs into this labyrinthian case, the more his mind starts to doubt everything he’s uncovering.
So who better to set him straight than…John Constantine? Problem with that is as much as John loves a good mystery, he loves messing with people’s heads even more. So with John’s “help,” the pair will delve into the sordid underbelly of Gotham as they race toward the mind-blowing truth of who murdered The Joker.”
Storyline aside, the thing that has everyone talking is the fact the comic shows a full-frontal naked Bruce Wayne. Head over to ScreenRant.com to see his Bat Stick in its full glory. Robin is one lucky sidekick 😉
If you want the inaugural issue complete with nudity, you better head to your local comic store and grab a physical copy quick. Within hours of the news breaking online, DC has decided to remove the nudity. The digital version of Batman: Damned #1 now censors all the naughty bits. Boo. It was fun while it lasted.
