What are your thoughts on this mini series

I'm excited for it. After taking the chance on White Knight (which I am very glad I did), I hope this lives up to that level as well. Bring on the dark and gritty detective work. This and the 3 Jokers will be my trial run for the DC Black Label. If this is good, I will give those others a shot. But if this is a let down, then I can't say I will jump into the others.

I see two covers for this so far. Bermejo's Cover A and Jim Lee's Cover B. Between this and the Spider-Geddon event, my September budget is already crying.

Well at least for the highly anticipated Batman damned there are only 2 covers and not 20

Thank goodness for that too. I hate all these variant covers. I don't mind an A and B and then 1 or 2 incentive covers.
But what they did for Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 should land that person that signed off on that idea 30 days in jail.

I just picked up my copy. I guess I didn’t pay attention but this comic is not a conventional size book. I don’t have a bag and board for it nor will it fit in my comic boxes. Does CBCS even grade this size of comic?
Honestly, the size change is a pain in the butt.

@billkruser5 This was asked earlier this month on Facebook. Mark Roman replied no. It is bigger than the max size of 7.625" x 10.5" and .24" thick.

Thank you for the quick response.
I wonder why DC decided to do this.
Oh well, it was a good read though. Even if “little Bruce” made an appearance.

I like Azzarello, I like that with the "mature" rating, the creators will have a new found level of freedom.

In all honestly I like the Black Label and I have trust in both the Creators and Editors to make this work the right way. So I'm greatly looking forward to future titles as well.

I'm gonna go ahead and say what most if not all of us are thinking, Wonder Woman naked. That said, if they do it right, it will work. If the first issue of a Wonder Woman Black Label comes out and it looks like a Lesbian Porno, I'll be disappointed. The characters deserve better than that. I had to get that out there, but let me emphasize, I think the creators will do it justice and I'm excited for more adult themed stories.

I don't think DC will use this for cheap thrills.

Ok can someone clarify this for me please? I see posts on the internet on Black Label from like March, and then June/July. The informations was a little all over the place. DC, CBR, all the "standard" outlets had information that changed later.

Is Batman: Damned the first Black Label or was White Knight the first? I wish DC would give us a semblance of a line up. I've seen titles on the March posts (ie: Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons)that was completely missing from the July posts which had new series added. I'm more confused than anything.

@stanley_1883 White Knight was kind of the inspiration for black label, if you will. it was still published under the standard DC label. It’s trade paperback will be black label though.

Damned is the first series to be released under the black label name

For me it almost sems inevitable they will bring a Dark Justice book to this format...we already have Constantine, Deadman, Zatanna, and Demon is apparently appearing in the 2nd issue...we need Swamp thing and we are off to the races....

So if CBCS or CGC grades it, do you think they will list that it is the first appearance of the Bat wanker? LOL!

I'm really surprised by this. I prefer the A cover myself, but it seemed like most people preferred the Jim Lee cover. At least, as stores were selling out they almost always ran out of Jim Lee first. And it was priced slightly higher on MCS (until they ran out, too).

Do you think this is the true market price ratio? Or is it just an artifact of the fact that the A cover was much more prevalent on eBay? (I assumed at the time, this imbalance was due to scarcity... that more people were holding onto their Jim Lee's.)

I don't care for the title written across his face, so I chose to order B...saw A in the lcs, and still passed on it (and still kicking myself).

I don't know...kind of just looks like another generic Lee Batman cover, but then I'm not that familiar with Bermejo, maybe this cover is also run of the mill for him too?

But really - Lees cover could just be work from Hush almost 20 years ago

Has enough pouches and no feet....may as well be Liefeld!!!

So would this qualify as the first full appearance of Batman?

They should at least list it as "uncensored". There are already CGC graded copies but no idea if anything specific about Bruce's penis is listed.

I wonder if the 2nd printing will have a variant cover? Bruce naked with a fig leaf covering his privates would be funny.

I know CBCS cant grade it because of the size, but if they could would they because of the nudity? Whats the CBCS stance on that kind of thing?

I think cbcs can raw grade that size.
