    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 are there to throw more gas on the fire that Murphy has lit! Read Full Review

    Heck, I'll probably re-read the original White Knight and all of “Knightfall” again, just for the hell of it! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 26, 2020

    Murphy delivers some beautiful visuals in this issue. The story is more character focused and that comes through in the art. Murphy has some great moments with Bruce being contemplative as well as some awesome group shots. My favorite moment is the return of an iconic Batmobile and how Murphy uses it in the story.

    Batman: Curse of the White Knight #7 is probably the best issue of Sean Murphy's epic alternate universe, as Bruce Wayne grapples with his family's complex legacy and comes to the most dramatic decision of his heroic career. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Geoffrey Luu Mar 8, 2020

    Batman: Curse of the White Knight #7 delivers another great read from Sean Murphy and Matt Hollingsworth. As usual, Murphy gives the characters room to breathe and reflect, enhancing our enjoyment of the story by immersing us in the characters' thoughts; however, he manages to strike a solid balance between introspection and solid action, or in this case the buildup of tension before the showdown. This issue alone creates enough hype for the series' finale, and if Murphy maintains his previous level of quality, it's shaping up to be incredible. Read Full Review

    By taking that route, Murphy has so many ways he can go with the story. Batman could do something else always thought unfathomable " kill someone. He could retire from crime-fighting when he completes the mission. Or, who's to say Batman will definitely survive this whole ordeal? Why should we trust Batman is safe so long as Murphy is in charge? Everything up to this point has indicated Bruce Wayne isn't safe in the pages of Batman: Curse of the White Knight.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 26, 2020

    I liked this 7th issue for what it's doing with the Batman character. A lot of what he says and does makes sense and it's clear Murphy has thought about this character quite a bit while crafting the decisions Batman and other characters make. This is a book that feels earned in its twists and turns, which is something you can't say for a lot of comic books these days. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Feb 26, 2020

    I am so excited to see how this amazing story will come to an end and what kind of things will be set up for Murphy’s next chapter of White Knight. I personally hope to see several stories spin out of this series, but we will just have to wait and see what happens next! Batman Curse of the White Knight #7 is available now so after you read this hop in your Batmobile and head to you local comic shop or download the digital copy direct from DC Comics.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Feb 26, 2020

    Batman: Curse of the White Knight is one step away from its last, and boy, does Murphy sure set us up for a thriller. This issue may be light on chronological progress, but it primes the emotions and the excitement perfectly as we await the final chapter. Desperate things have been done, but the most desperate may be yet to come, and I can hardly stand the wait until#8 drops next month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Feb 26, 2020

    Overall, the art remains fantastic and consistent throughout the series, however I think this story is really starting to feel like six issues was the sweet spot to tell it, and eight feels entirely too long. Even with the extended length poor Azriel doesnt really get the shine he deserves as the big bad who forces Bruce to reveal his identity to Gotham. I still look forward to the finale here but I wouldn't say this issue really did much to ramp up that excitment. Read Full Review
