Batman: Damned is a 2018-2019 limited series written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Lee Bermejo, published under DC's Black Label imprint for mature readers. It is a quasi-sequel to the 2008 graphic novel Joker, following Batman and John Constantine's investigation of a potential supernatural threat after the Joker is mysteriously murdered.




  • The first comic book to be published under the DC Black Label imprint.
  • According to artist Lee Bermejo, "Damned is a quasi-sequel to Joker in that you don't necessarily have to read Joker to read and enjoy this book but if you've read Joker, I think people will find they're brother and sister books."[1]
  • The original printing of Batman: Damned #1 is the first comic book to show Bruce Wayne fully naked without censorship.[2] However, this was edited out of digital copies of the issue, and DC has announced intentions to only include the censored version in all future printings of the comic.[3]
