DC Entertainment has delayed the release of upcoming issues for its Black Label series Batman: Damned.

The announcement comes after the public reaction to the use of nudity in the series first issue (see "'Batman: Damned' Content Altered for Digital, Reprints, Collections").  Despite the "Mature Readers" warning, there was negative feedback, and DC promised altered content for future versions.

The Diamond announcement said that Batman: Damned #1 will not be reprinted at this time. Batman: Damned #2 will have a new on-sale date of December 5 (Diamond still lists publication as November 21), and Batman: Damned #3 will now be solicited in January Previews, with release on March 13.
