DC Comics debut their new cutting edge BLACK LABEL imprint with BATMAN: THE DAMNED #1 — the most compelling BATMAN stand-alone story we’ve seen since last year’s WHITE KNIGHT!

The team of JOKER & LUTHOR, Azzarello and Bermejo, reunite for this dark new BATMAN tale that asks the question: did Batman kill the Joker?
Taking inspiration from the incredible reception that last year’s BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT received, DC has kicked off a new imprint of stand-alone, ELSEWORLDS-style stories featuring the hottest talent in comics, simply called BLACK LABEL, and we’re so pumped to see the first of these books hitting the shop this week with BATMAN: THE DAMNED #1!
From the creative team who brought you the “JOKER” and “LUTHOR” graphic novels, BATMAN THE DAMNED begins with a simple idea: 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.

Make sure to get the Cover B variant of THE DAMNED #1 by superstar artist JIM LEE (HUSH) for just $6.99 cover price!

In addition to that gorgeous cover A, we’ve got a special Cover B variant of BATMAN: THE DAMNED which features gorgeous artwork from the one and only BATMAN superstar extraordinaire, JIM LEE, who many of you know from the iconic storyline, HUSH!
Make sure you snag a copy this week while supplies last!

Between the new Spider-Man PS4 game, and the upcoming VENOM movie, we’re pretty jazzed on all things wall-crawler right now, and this week, there’s a very killer one-shot Spidey tale coming your way courtesy of rising star Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) that delves into Peter’s history with the SYMBIOTE!
In the ASM ANNUAL 2018, we see how years ago, Spider-Man came back from an alien world with a fantastic new costume – one he eventually learned was a living alien symbiote looking to bond with him permanently!
But before he rejected the costume that went on to become VENOM, many a night the symbiote would creep onto Peter, and unbeknownst to its host, take them out into the night!
Now, for the first time, see just what the symbiote steered Peter into during these mysterious nighttime excursions! Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) weaves an ALL-NEW nightmare fairy tale, illustrated by the incomparable Garry Brown, in what is sure to be a dream book for any Spider-Man fan!
