    Compelling and action-packed, Batman: Beyond the White Knight #4 sidelines Bruce Wayne in favor of placing the rest of the Bat-Family in the spotlight. The result is utterly enthralling as Sean Murphy provides meaningful answers to several of the series' questions while posing even more. I am excited to see how Murphy resolves the answers to these questions in upcoming installments. Read Full Review

    Murphy offers some crisp, clean and highly detailed art throughout the issue. I love the visual call backs to the Animated series as well as the style of the action. Read Full Review

    Batman: Beyond the White Knight, and the Murphyverse at large, feel like an excellent cover of the Batman Animated series, along with some elements of the post-Crisis and New 52 continuities. Murphy and Stewart take those established characters and elements like Duke Thomas, Terry McGinnis, and even Jason Todd, and tweak and twist their core elements to mold them into something unique. Its an excellent way for the team to play in a world that feels adjacent to these iconic or foundational interpretations of the characters, and Gotham as a whole, but still makes them seem original and surprising, issue to issue. Beyond the White Knight is a perfect place to jump into the Murphyverse and get the toes wet, especially for fans of Duke or Terry, to see if they enjoy these new interpretations of the characters.

    Batman: Beyond The White Knight #4 is a wonderful issue that sets up the next title in this story about Red Hood. This was a great chapter that scratched all of the itches I was starting to feel about the series. Read Full Review

    While Batman: Beyond the White Knight #4 is very exciting, it is left unclear as to how the story will proceed. This is supposed to segue into a spinoff about the Red Hood, but are they leaving the story open-ended, pausing it, or will these events continue in a new title? It seems like the story is just getting started and it would be a shame if it just ended. It's doubtful they are going that route, but hopefully, we'll see more of the Tomorrow Knight soon!

    After last issue's offensive new origin for Derek Powers, combined with the creator's controversial online presence, I was skeptical about this series going forward. Fortunately, it does still have some things going for itparticularly a tense sense of action that leads to great chase segments. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Jun 28, 2022

    I've just had to come to the realization that I just don't love the world of White Knight as much as I thought I did when it started. So much mischaracterization and drama has been drawn out for, I think, a lot longer than it should have been. This series is going on a hiatus now, but hopefully the second half will finally reconcile the political Gotham that Murphy has been dealing with and bring this entire universe to a final conclusion. Score: 4/10 Read Full Review
