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 issue to go before this storyline wraps! This issue is basically an excuse for more street-level interpretations of DC’s supernatural characters for no reason!
In the first issue we got Deadman and Zatanna, and here we get Jas ...more
I’m a sucker for good art and this is just beauuuuutiful (and dark AF, and evil).
Beat on the bat, beat on the bat, BEAT ON THE BAT, WITH A BASEBALL BAT

Got further confused, maybe because I had forgotten about the first book. Still the story doesn't make me much excited for the conclusion. Cool flashback for Bruce tho.
First issue was better, but art is pretty awesome. Waiting to see what happens next. I feel like it is too early to say anything major for sure yet.
