By this time most of us have heard of this new Batman series, not only for the high quality of the design or the fascinating and engaging story but mainly for Bruce Wayne’s frontal nudity.

The first prints of this new comic sold out and DC reported that the reprints will, like the digital versions, have Batman’s penis censored. In his place, the image was darkened, as you can see in the images below.
Here’s the synopsis of BATMAN: DAMNED:
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 labyrinthian 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.
