Sean Gordon Murphy’s follow up to Batman: White Knight might be the biggest book of 2019. And now we know the Curse of the White Knight hits this July.
What a horrible knight have a curse
Was there a more celebrated comic in recent years than Batman: White Knight? Probably not. Writer/artist Sean Gordon Murphy’s series that kinda-sorta took place in the Batman: The Animated Series universe was a beast. It got heaps of both critical and fan acclaim, and left fans clamoring for another.
Now they’ve got just that with Batman: Curse of the White Knight.
Following the critical success of BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT, Murphy is putting a new spin on this upcoming series, with The Joker recruiting a new, savage partner to help him expose a shocking revelation about the Wayne family’s legacy. As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from this corrupt conspiracy, the Dark Knight will come face to face with the horrifying truth.
Murphy’s BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT delivered an alternative examination of the relationship between the greatest rivals in the DC Universe. By curing The Joker of his insanity and making him an advocate for good in Gotham City, Murphy led Batman down his own path of madness. And now the story continues in this exciting new miniseries.DC Comics press release
