    Again…Batman: White Knight was special. And this sequel is a fun ride. Murphy reduces the character down to bare bones in this issue. What is really the lineage of Bruce Wayne? And how does Azrael fit in on all of this? What a great time to be a Batman fan! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Oct 1, 2019

    This was a fun and fulfilling issue. I very much enjoyed the amplified sass that is pregnant Harley. I also am in absolute love with this new GCPD knowing Bruce is Batman. I know it's not canon so I won't see much more of it. However, I can't say "IT'S ABOUT TIME!" enough. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable third chapter that sets the stage for a confrontation for the ages. The secret weapon is the Harley/Batman relationship which is well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Sep 25, 2019

    Overall, Curse of the White Knight takes a break from the faster pacing of issues one and two, to dig into the mystery at hand, and really examine how all the different pieces fit into this puzzle from past to present.  Sean Murphy again does both scripting and art duties, showing equal care in crafting a tale that remains visually interesting, and intriguing to fans of the Worlds Greatest Detective.  The series as a whole continues to be a nice break from a typical Batman story, that may miss the mark at times with a few of the 'chances' it takes, yet still manages to find a good combination of familiarity with originality by the end.
