BATMAN: DAMNED #1
written by BRIAN AZZARELLO
art and cover by LEE BERMEJO
variant cover by JIM LEE
DC BLACK LABEL, the highly anticipated new imprint from DC Comics, starts here!
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.
BATMAN: DAMNED is a bimonthly super-natural horror story told by two of comics’ greatest modern creators—a visceral thrill-ride that proudly puts the “black” in BLACK LABEL.

I’ll give that a look. One of the best creative teams in comics.

Dan Slott's last issue of Amazing Spider-Man was really touching. It's a stand alone so no need to worry about being lost.

I'm not really into the X-Men anymore but I keep trying every now and again and for some reason this one hit for me.

His art is timeless. Looks as good today as when he first drew it.

Marvel's latest relaunch of Hulk is a full on horror comic. Number 2 was legit creepy. Horror fans might want to give it a shot.

I finished Kill or Be Killed last night. One of my favorite series. I was bummed about the ending, but realized that’s really the only way it could’ve worked. Those last few pages...

Brubaker/ Phillips has to be the premiere creative team in comics right now.

sort-of related: I would love for this to happen to more unproduced screenplays.

So, I'm diving back into some superhero stuff from both Marvel and DC. I got the first 3 issues of both the new Avengers and new Justice League titles. Started Avengers last night. Overall story seems pretty cool after 2 issues, but I really, REALLY dislike the "1,000,000 years ago stand-ins for current characters" bit they've thrown in. And even more than that, I hate the fact Odin is wielding Mjolnir back then. He made/ had made the fucking hammer FOR Thor. It's not a family heirloom. And why does Thor have a golden arm and hammer? (There was also a reference to him having many hammers that I didn't understand.)

They did that for the Dark Crystal sequel that never got off the ground.

Yeah you jumped into something several years in the making. To get the full effect you'd have to read Jason Aaron's entire Thor run (which is awesome) or read the wiki entries. Marvel Norse Mythology differs (sometimes greatly) from the traditional and as is often the case in comics it gets changed often.

Oh, I realize that. I just don't like how they've changed what they established long ago. I did read the Thor miniseries where he's looking for the Ultimate Thor hammer. Unworthy maybe? It was pretty good, but he had a black arm in that (and I don't know why).

Oh yeah. I read a bunch of Dark Crystal stuff last year and that seems like one of the books. I remember thinking it was just OK so it makes sense they didn't make it into a film.

Didn't they do that for a Frank Miller Robocop movie a few years back?
