    The Joker’s still deaded and Batman and John Constantine are continuing to puzzle out whodunit - they don’t get much closer in Batman: Damned #2! There’s disappointingly little development in the increasingly trite-seeming plot, which is surprising as there’s only one more issue to go before this storyline wraps! This issue is basically an excuse for more street-level interpretations of DC’s supernatural characters for no reason! In the...

    I’m a sucker for good art and this is just beauuuuutiful (and dark AF, and evil).

    The only reason I’m giving this a four star rating instead of a five star is because I’m not sure that I love how it ended. I think I need a bit more time to sit on that part. First things first: love the cover. I’m not sure if I’m accurate in assuming this, but it looks like a hat tip to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. At least, I hope it is. It’d be a nice touch. And it would explain some of the style changes we’re seeing (though ano...

    Told in a trademark Azzarello-Bermejo dark, gritty, noir-ish style, Batman Damned Book 2 masks its shallow story progression and simplistic story with a narrative that throws in all those words you can find in a dictionary for emo brooders and half-baked rappers trying to convey some silly messages with loose rhyme and pretentious street language. This installment is more of a shock entertainment that is made to fit under the Black Label category...

    The impact of this storyline has much paly in this issue. Though the attraction of is just as before. A just another alternative journey of the world's most popular #Superhero #Batman. In this semi horror gothic style of story has so mant things to think about. Though the #hunter of the Batman is much like similar to the Marvel's Thanos. In #Thanos latest origin story where Mistress Death follows Thanos his entire life. Here Batman is also haunte...

    Beat on the bat, beat on the bat, BEAT ON THE BAT, WITH A BASEBALL BAT No bat badingdon here. So let's focus on the Bat horror shall we. The issue had a little development happening and manly focus on the supernatural aspect of Gotham. Joker is dead and the enchantress is haunting bat. The Bruce flashback is also add's some info on what is Bruce's childhood actually is before the Crime Alley incident. Constantine and Dead man two big hotshot in D...

    Fantastic art, but the story has completely lost me. This is the second volume in a 3 volume series and story-wise we're at the same exact place we were at the beginning of volume 1, which means that no doubt volume 3 will be paced at breakneck speed. The cloud of edginess in the first volume has now descended into a damp fog, and most of this volume is spent reciting trite Batman angst. And because of all the controversy in the first volume, the...

    Not really enjoying this at all. One more issue. I guess I'll still read it to see how it ends.

    Weaker than I remember the first issue being, but still interesting.

    The artwork is unbelievably gorgeous, I mean I honestly can't get over it. Story line wise it sorta left me wanting though, too much expectations after the first one sorta let me down a little.

    No words. This read like a filler issue with no substantial plot or arc. There’s a black rapper caricature who’s in there just to be laughed at. Because this is the DC Black Label, the writer takes the opportunity to throw in as many F-bombs as possible. Constantine’s narration continues to be pedantic. The art is mesmerizing but inconsistent. Constantine looks different in every panel and some of the lettering is hard to read. From time to...

    A new episode in this great new series of Batman, as opposed to what you might think at first sight, is not a normal Batman series, really not, it's a much more realistic series and it's not a normal thing you usually see.There were a lot of things moving the plot here, but unfortunately this is the penultimate episode of the series, to my delight there are going to be another series on the new DC label, but I hope, I really hope, and I really wa...

    🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟I think terms like "noir" and "gritty" are thrown around way too much in this genre. Hell, in crime fiction in general for that matter. Throw the term "pulp" in that list, too. However, I can't think of any better words to describe this one. It has a gritty noir feel with Constantine as the narrator of the story. This one also seamlessly weaves together the supernatural DC with the seedy, violent, Gotham City that Batman inhab...

    I know I should have waited until the next one was either out or closer to being released but I needed more NOW lol. This has been a great foray back into comics after idk how many years. It's darker than I remember Batman being..and I remember him being pretty dark. So I'm loving that. And that cover....ugh..i love it. But I'm a Harley fanatic. That ending left me thirsty for the next book.

    Tje art in this is excellent, the story, not so much. A little more 'world building' and flashbacks in between Bats an John's investigation. With Bermejo chanelling the panel.layouts of some other important dc stories, lets hope the have enough room to wrap everything in the third and final issue, without feeling rushed.

    FantasticContinues to be a landmark "adult" Batman series! Looking forward to issue three in a couple months! High quality production and artwork really help shape the darkness of the story.

    Pocatello & Bermejo can do no wrong with this series. Just perfectly written & the art is GENIUS

    Got further confused, maybe because I had forgotten about the first book. Still the story doesn't make me much excited for the conclusion. Cool flashback for Bruce tho.

    Scott Synder wishes he wrote this well. So far, Batman: Damned is the best Batman series I've read.

    First issue was better, but art is pretty awesome. Waiting to see what happens next. I feel like it is too early to say anything major for sure yet.

    Meh, this wasn't good as the first one. It's drawn out and the ending is unsatisfactory. Art is still great. At least, we don't have to see Batman's whopper :)

    The visuals are even better than the (excellent) ones in the first volume, and the storyline is blessed with a slightly less chriptic developement. But the result is till messy as hell.

    2 issues in I'm not entirely sure what's going on but it does look stunning. Let's hope there's a payoff at some stage.
