‘Batman: Damned’: Seth Meyers Chimes In On Nudity Controversy

Batman Bruce Wayne DC ComicsSeth Myers on Late Night with Seth Meyers chimed in on the Bat-phallus and Batman: Damned last night.

The comics and the entertainment news cycles have been dominated by one thing for the past several days – Batman’s penis. For the first time since 1939, comic fans were for some reason given a full-frontal view of The Dark Knight and the internet has been ablaze ever since. Joining the fracas is late night host, Seth Meyers as he, of course, quipped and jabbed regarding the Bat-phallus. And honestly, he’s got some pretty good punches in. I admit it, I lost it at the Mr. Freeze joke. The full video is embedded below

And so, the saga of Batman’s penis continues. What’s worse is that DC Comics has announced that they will be censoring future editions of the comic book which means that, sigh, the Bat-phallus will become a collectors item.  In a few years comic books collectors will be scouring the internet and comic book shops just looking for – I just can’t. Batman: Damned #1 is in stores now.

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.
