    Batman: Beyond the White Knight is one of my absolute favorite DC stories at the moment, and despite the admittedly high bar it finds a way to deliver each and every time. Read Full Review

    Murphy delivers some amazing visuals throughout the issue. The art style is beautiful and I continue to love how Murphy continues to make Bruces literal shadow look like Batman and how that shadow continues to stalk his every move. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel May 24, 2022

    With strong design work and excellent threading of continuity, Beyond the White Knight #3 remains one of the most solid books in DCs roster. Murphys art and writing have refined the series into a tight story grappling with Dads trying to fix their families and the continuity thats been built across the multiple series. Paired with Stewarts perfectly accented colors, the designs and aesthetic of this issue feel original but still in line with whats come before. With the book reaching close to its halfway point, the pieces of Derek Powers, Duke and Terry are beginning to click into place, and it will be fun to watch if Murphy and Stewart can mend the Batfamily, and do justice to all the fractured elements of the universe.

    With the twists that Murphy is pointing into the story which deviates from what is normally seen in both the DC animated universe and the mainstream DC universe, Batman: Beyond the White Knight #3 keeps readers invested and wanting more, while not quite knowing what to expect. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna May 25, 2022

    This chapter is a mixed bag for me. There's definitely stuff to like about Sean Gordon Murphy's universe, and I love how he writes Terry and the rest of the Batman Beyond cast. Often times, the massive changes to the main Batman cast make this feel like an original action/drama book, rather than a Batman book. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 24, 2022

    The art continues to be strong, but unfortunately this issue is deeply compromised by its new origin for Derek Powersmaking him an explicitly Jewish arms dealer who became so powerful by blackmailing Bruce with knowledge of his secret identity and is obsessed with creating weapons of war. Do I even need to detail just how many dog whistles there are in that? Read Full Review
