Lee Bermejo has been working on Batman: Damned, a Batman/Hellblazer project written by Brian Azzarello and now part of their Black Label mature readers superhero imprint. And to launch the title for September 20th… Bermejo says that “a preview should be showing up in most DC books”. I am going to hazard a guess that this might not include Who Is Scooby Doo? — but you never know…
Here are his latest released images from the comic. A preview, or the preview, you might say.
BATMAN DAMNED #1 (OF 3) (MR)

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 labyrinthine 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.In Shops: Sep 19, 2018
Final Orders Due: Aug 20, 2018
