Batman: Damned, Book Two Reviews

    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 ...

    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 lik...

    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 s...

    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...

    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 th...

    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 ...

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

    Can't wait for #3 next year ! ...

    Wow what a series! Great issue as well! Love it. Very dark and different, refreshing in an evil way! ...

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

    The second issue feels more stable, it got finally something like a framework for me. The story still got no firm direction but I finally got a grasp at the dynamic of the story. [spoiler]Joker is, or maybe not, dead [/spoiler], but it feels more about Batman's psychoanalysis than abou...

    The art in this book is FANTASTIC, which is good because, story wise, this series doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Not only that, but the scene transitions don't make sense to me. Batman is at one place in the middle of something, then he is doing something else somewhere else wit...

    The book is crazy. Really wonderful. Dont want to have yo wait two months for the next. ...

    Why is Constantine narrating? What is Dead Man doing here? ... just not interesting enough for me. ...

    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 c...

    ????? 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...

    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 unfortuna...

    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...

    Fantastic Continues 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. ...

    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 art is just extraordinary! ...

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

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

    I starting to be sceptical about its ending... ...

    This is super dark and confusing too. The artwork were incredible. Intriguing and can?t wait for the next issue. ...

    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 ...

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

    Can't wait for #3 next year ! ...

    Wow what a series! Great issue as well! Love it. Very dark and different, refreshing in an evil way! ...

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

    The second issue feels more stable, it got finally something like a framework for me. The story still got no firm direction but I finally got a grasp at the dynamic of the story. [spoiler]Joker is, or maybe not, dead [/spoiler], but it feels more about Batman's psychoanalysis than abou...

    The art in this book is FANTASTIC, which is good because, story wise, this series doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Not only that, but the scene transitions don't make sense to me. Batman is at one place in the middle of something, then he is doing something else somewhere else wit...

    The book is crazy. Really wonderful. Dont want to have yo wait two months for the next. ...

    Why is Constantine narrating? What is Dead Man doing here? ... just not interesting enough for me. ...

    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 c...

    Again the artwork, left me completely breathless, there?s something unique on how hauntingly real this volume feels and it made me love it even more than the first one in this series. Thank goodness the monologues are heading somewhere in this one, ?cause I was totally not feeling ...

    ????? 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...

    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 unfortuna...

    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...

    This second volume was not nearly as good as the first. The art by Lee Bermejo is still magnificent, but the story by Brian Azzarello could have been much, much better. Still, I'm looking forward to more... ...

    Fantastic Continues 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. ...

    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 art is just extraordinary! ...

    My love for Batmen is my favorite hero comics !!! ...

    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 ...

    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 lik...

    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 s...

    Wow what a series! Great issue as well! Love it. Very dark and different, refreshing in an evil way! ...

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

    The second issue feels more stable, it got finally something like a framework for me. The story still got no firm direction but I finally got a grasp at the dynamic of the story. [spoiler]Joker is, or maybe not, dead [/spoiler], but it feels more about Batman's psychoanalysis than abou...

    The art in this book is FANTASTIC, which is good because, story wise, this series doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Not only that, but the scene transitions don't make sense to me. Batman is at one place in the middle of something, then he is doing something else somewhere else wit...

    The book is crazy. Really wonderful. Dont want to have yo wait two months for the next. ...

    Why is Constantine narrating? What is Dead Man doing here? ... just not interesting enough for me. ...

    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 c...

    Again the artwork, left me completely breathless, there?s something unique on how hauntingly real this volume feels and it made me love it even more than the first one in this series. Thank goodness the monologues are heading somewhere in this one, ?cause I was totally not feeling ...

    ????? 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...

    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 unfortuna...

    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...

    This second volume was not nearly as good as the first. The art by Lee Bermejo is still magnificent, but the story by Brian Azzarello could have been much, much better. Still, I'm looking forward to more... ...

    Fantastic Continues 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. ...

    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 art is just extraordinary! ...

    My love for Batmen is my favorite hero comics !!! ...

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

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

    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 th...

    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 ...

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

    Can't wait for #3 next year ! ...

    Wow what a series! Great issue as well! Love it. Very dark and different, refreshing in an evil way! ...

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

    The second issue feels more stable, it got finally something like a framework for me. The story still got no firm direction but I finally got a grasp at the dynamic of the story. [spoiler]Joker is, or maybe not, dead [/spoiler], but it feels more about Batman's psychoanalysis than abou...

    The art in this book is FANTASTIC, which is good because, story wise, this series doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Not only that, but the scene transitions don't make sense to me. Batman is at one place in the middle of something, then he is doing something else somewhere else wit...

    The book is crazy. Really wonderful. Dont want to have yo wait two months for the next. ...

    Why is Constantine narrating? What is Dead Man doing here? ... just not interesting enough for me. ...

    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 c...

    Again the artwork, left me completely breathless, there?s something unique on how hauntingly real this volume feels and it made me love it even more than the first one in this series. Thank goodness the monologues are heading somewhere in this one, ?cause I was totally not feeling ...

    ????? 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...

    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 unfortuna...

    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...

    This second volume was not nearly as good as the first. The art by Lee Bermejo is still magnificent, but the story by Brian Azzarello could have been much, much better. Still, I'm looking forward to more... ...

    Fantastic Continues 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. ...

    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 :) ...
