Batman: Damned (DC Black Label)
***Join us from 12pm-2pm for a special one-day only signing event with DC Comics' Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo! Purchase of Batman: Damned will include one ticket for the signing line. Brian and Lee will be signing copies of Batman: Damned and The Joker (DC Black Label Edition) only.
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 labyrinthine case, the more he starts to doubt everything he’s uncovering.
So who better to set him straight than…John Constantine?
The 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.
Batman: Damned is a groundbreaking supernatural horror story told by two of comics’ greatest modern creators: Brian Azzarello (DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE, 100 BULLETS) and Lee Bermejo (HELLBLAZER, JOKER). This hardcover volume collects BATMAN: DAMNED #1-3 and features a behind-the-scenes extras gallery.
Brian Azzarello has been writing comics professionally since the mid-1990s. He is the New York Times best-selling author of BATMAN, JONNY DOUBLE, SPACEMAN, Moonshine and the groundbreaking, Harvey and Eisner award-winning series 100 BULLETS, all created in collaboration with artist Eduardo Risso. His other works include HELLBLAZER and LOVELESS (both with Marcelo Frusin), SUPERMAN: FOR TOMORROW (with Jim Lee), JOKER, LUTHOR and BEFORE WATCHMEN (all with Lee Bermejo), a character-defining three-year run on WONDER WOMAN (with Cliff Chiang), as well as DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE (with Frank Miller and Andy Kubert).
