Warning: Some Adult Content
Okay, so DC has published its first issue of Batman Damned under its DC Black Label imprint, and boy is it adult. You actually get to see Bruce Wayne nude, not just from the back but the front. I’m posting an image below as proof, plus I archived two news sources just in case they get “poofed” for their content later on. Actually, that didn’t work, because the archived version doesn’t display the “adult” images.
Now here’s the image I captured.
Yeah, it’s in deep shadow, but it’s there. So, we need Batman pr0n because?
Maybe I’m just getting old. After all, these graphic novels are intended for adult audiences, not children. On the other hand, regardless of the justifications offered by DC and others, it seems clear that the images were included not because they further the plot or contribute to the story, but because they are controversial and will (in all likelihood) generate revenue, not unlike how Nike has used Colin Kaepernick to pep up their profits.
