DC's Black Label Imprint Gets First Funko Pop! with Batman: Damned

Gotham City is known for being the setting of many dark and gritty stories centering on the dark knight. But in the comic book miniseries Batman: Damned -- written by Brian Azzarello with art by Lee Bermejo -- the world of Batman is depicted as being even darker and grittier.

It's a version of Batman we've never really seen before, one surrounded by magic and demons of all sorts.
