‘Batman: Damned #1’ Full Frontal Nudity To Be Censored In Future Printings

Batman Damned CoverDC Comics will be censoring future printings of Batman: Damned #1 due to the caped crusader’s full frontal nudity in the issue.

Bruce Wayne left nothing to the imagination in the first issue from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bemejo. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that DC will censoring the controversial panel in future printings of the issue while digital versions have already been censored. Sources say the panel didn’t add anything to the story and will therefore be removed. Batman: Damned is the first of DC’s new Black Label, which will feature comics with mature content. Despite DC censoring future printings of the issue, there are still 115,000 print copies with the full frontal in circulation.

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.

Batman: Damned #1 is now available in stores.

    Well that stinks, because it was one of the best, most fun episodes of the series to date.

      I agree, it was a great episode! JSA teaser at the end was awesome…

  • Marquis de Sade

    Well look on the bright side, since it’s dceu, we’re guaranteed to get the 100 hour director’s cut of season 2!

    Maybe its a stupid comment but what if its a Guggenheim boycott after his not so nice comments about comic book fans and his treatment of comic book characters. I still can’t believe how they treated the character of Hawkgirl on Legends last season.

    Well, it has to contend with Thursday Night Football. I have a feeling that might dip into it’s demographic some. I feel like it never had that issue last year. I recall the series starting so late that probably no thursday games left.
