    With two issues to go, smart money says Murphy can't top himself as the work he exhibited here is exceptional. Wise money, on the other hand, says never doubt the talents of Sean Murphy. Read Full Review

    I would love to have been a fly on the wall when AndWorld received the script and art for this book, because I yelled out a multitude of expletives when I read the issue. They not only had to read it, but then transfer those shocking, powerful words to the page! Another job brilliantly well done. Read Full Review

    White Knight should be on your shelf! It's a must read to get you into this series that Sean Murphy is painting for his readers. This issue shakes it down to the core a bit. Again, no purposeful spoilers here, but the last few pages make you gasp for breath! Read Full Review

    Murphy brings the same beauty and brilliance to the art which has a poetic symmetry that complements the story. The angles Murphy uses to enhance the drama as well as the contrasting grays and reds throughout add an awesome tone to each page. Read Full Review

    Of course, this is assuming what the Joker says is true. And it might be hard for Batman to disprove what his old rival said, given the way Batman: Curse of the White Knight #6 ended " unless Jason Blood lends a helping hand. Read Full Review

    Murphy's been show-running this comic nearly solo from the start, and it's evolving into one of the most promising Batman alternate universes in years. Read Full Review

    Again and again, I find myself struggling to find one thing I don't like about this arc. Between each plot twist and reveal I'm constantly at the edge of my seat wanting to know what happened next. Not a moment in this series leaves me in a bore and I need more. Read Full Review

    This is a good sixth issue with so many reveals and plot twists you may need to lay down after reading it. The Elseworlds method of storytelling continues to show how exciting and surprising superheroes can be without the limitations of canon.  Read Full Review

    Batman: Curse of the White Knight #6 reveals that thing Jack told Harley to keep from Bruce, and boy is it a doozy. It's the sort of thing you couldn't get away with in-continuity, but that makes for an effective shock here. The action is intense, the emotions strong and believable, and the visual storytelling is on-point. If you decided to pass on this series, you're missing what will hopefully be a much stronger finish than what we saw in the first White Knight. Right that wrong, catch up, and join us as we race to the conclusion over these next two months. Read Full Review

    Overall,  Batman: Curse of the White Knight is a little bit more of a mixed bag this month. As a whole it comes out more on the positive side of things than the negative however, it leaves one wondering what is really left to explore for another two issues at points. Sean Murphy's art is still incredible each and every issue which almost makes the series worth it to me personally right there. I just can't shake the feeling this sequel is missing a bit of the magic that made the first iteration so gripping. Read Full Review
