    While there are several outstanding Batman books on the market right now, Beyond The White Knight deserves to be recognized as one of the best, and somehow it just keeps getting better. Read Full Review

    Murphy delivers some beautifully detailed and exciting art throughout the issue. The art perfectly captures the mood of the story and immerses the reader in great action and drama along with some awesome visual Easter eggs.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Sep 28, 2022

    It takes about half the issue, but Beyond the White Knight #5 finds its footing in an uneven, overstuffed issue. Murphys script and art fall into a trap of the modern Batman era, which is trying to do too much with a large cast of the Batfamily and spreading the narrative thin. Once Murphy sheds the various sidekicks and returns to the central core of Bruce, Napier, and Harley, the narrative tightens and the art sharpens to one of the best sequences of the entire imprint. Murphy delivers a moment that feels like a natural result of the universe he and Stewart have built across the various titles, and itll be fascinating to see if they can continue that focus into the final three issues of the series.

    I continue to be unimpressed as Beyond the White Knight goes on. It almost reminds me of a film series that had one initial movie everyone liked, only to spawn a half a dozen bad sequels. Read Full Review
