    Not only that, Batman left Barbara hanging out to dry once he disarmed her. Azrael could've done much worse damage than he did. Now, it looks like he broke or dislocated Batgirl's arm. If he broke her back, I don't know how Barbara ever forgives Batman. Because that's entirely on him. Read Full Review

    A strong flashback to Alfred's role in the Wayne's big secret, and a tense cliffhanger that leaves another hero's fate in question adds up to the best issue of the run. It's no surprise that this series essentially launched Black Label. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 23, 2019

    This series continues to titillate with its intriguing flashback reveals and excellent art. This issue may suffer a bit though as it's so hung up on the demise of Jim Gordon it seems to put the more interesting plots on hold like Joker and Bruce's ancestor. That said, there is no denying this series continues Murphy's fresh take on the character. Read Full Review

    Overall, Curse of the White Knight slows down mysterious reveals in the overall story a bit this issue, albeit to tackle last issues huge cliffhanger ending, hitting some emotional notes in the process, especially when it comes to capturing how different people in someones life might handle grief they're experiencing.  It moves on to setup another huge conflict to kick off next issue, that coupled with some amazing art yet again, proves to be one of the most consistently good books on DC shelf at the moment.

    Multiversity Comics - Beau Q. Oct 28, 2019

    Light on heart-stringing, heavy on exposition, "Batman: Curse of the White Knight" #4 suffers a fatal crack along its narrative spinal column, but the pain, which is yearned to be felt, ends up numbing. This is the mini-series's halfway point, so maybe this is its creative and figurative low point. Read Full Review
