Batman doesn’t use guns. Not unless something really bad has happened. In the Batman comics that has been explained as a consequence of his parents being murdered at gunpoint.
In today’s Batman Damned #2 by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo out today, we go further back. To when Bruce Wayne was playing at the Lone Ranger…
Though it’s a far less idyllic childhood as often portrayed
And a promise asked for and a promise made.
And we know how he feels about Martha Wayne. And so it goes today. Of course in The Batman Who Laughs #1 we meet the Grim Knight…
…who never made that promise, perhaps. And no one look to his earliest tales…
What would Martha say?

(W) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Jock
Left rattled by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, Bruce Wayne must come face to face with the nightmares spawned from the Dark Multiverse. But even though evil devoured evil in the collapse of Challengers Mountain, the Dark Knight still has his doubts. He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of METAL, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse-something both terrifying and oddly familiar. But when Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman won’t break…the same rule that created this insatiable villain-the Batman Who Laughs!In Shops: Dec 12, 2018
