Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

As with most things by Azzarello, I feel like he's trying way too hard to be edgy and "deep", which makes it all come out as insufferably hard to read through.  Plus, he's got all of his favorite wordplay puns out in force, which is probably the thing I dislike about his writing the most.  I'll stay reading just for the artwork, but the story had done absolutely nothing for me.  

Agreed with most of that though I have to cop to enjoying some of his puns.

I love Bermejo's artwork on this story, but the writing? Woof--Azzarello's mangling of the British voice and terminology continues.

Probably not a surprise to anyone, but issue #2 has been delayed for a month, at this time. Issue #2 is currently scheduled for December, while #3 is scheduled for March. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see more delays with the book.

Hopefully, Azzarello is using this extra time to do extra research for the rest of the story. I would hate to see "The Joker stabbed me in my knee. I was concerned he had hit a lung."

Batman: Damned # 2 is out today.  I read it.  I saw the night club scene and the "brilliant re-imagining" of the character that's found there.

Go home, Brian Azzarello, you're drunk and you need to lay down.

I remember that, and I think the seriousness of it here is my biggest problem.  It's kind of a natural way to take the character if you're playing it for laughs, like Ennis did, but Azzarello does it with such a straight face that it makes the entire comic look fucking ridiculous.

Damned doesn't look like my kind of thing, but you must admit this is pretty great:
