Gotham City's strongest alliance comes to an end when Gordon's trust in Batman reaches its limit. On the verge of resignation, the commissioner attempts a final act of public service, but an unlikely intervention allows the Dark Knight to fight another day. Meanwhile, Jack's mission takes a hit when his pills lose effect-and under cover of all this chaos, Neo Joker is positioned to take the city hostage.

    Sean Gordon Murphy creates one of the most beautiful Gotham City's in comic history. He's equally talented at writing the chaos that is ripping it apart. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Austin Braun Mar 15, 2018

    Batman: White Knight #6 is a headstrong issue that takes most what we have learned in the past issues and finally sheds some light on what's actually going to go down in the final confrontation. After six issues we may finally see why Jack, who seems to have everything going for him at this point, needs a chained up Batmans help. The only real question now that I have is how easy is it for Jack to change from Jack to Joker and back to Jack? Hopefully, we will get this information in the next issue so definitely keep up with this incredible story by Sean Murphy! Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Mar 9, 2018

    The only thing more impressive than Murphy's artwork is the ease in which he takes the various conflicting elements of Batman's history and works them into a coherent story. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jeremy Joanes Mar 8, 2018

    Batman White Knight #6 continues the unique battle between the Joker and Batman with maturity and grace. As the story races to it inevitably bombastic conclusion, if you've haven't caught up now, this is the time do it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 6, 2018

    Sean Murphy gives readers another great issue of a great series and there is no reason that everyone shouldn't be reading this book.  The story and art are sensational and while this issue is heavy on setup (pretty much the only negative I could find here), it's great setup that's littered with character moments, reveals and twists.  Highly recommended!

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Mar 9, 2018

    A sharp turn at the end is too important to reveal here, but will be revisited after Batman: White Knight‘s penultimate issue coming soon. Overall, another beautiful artistic display and highlighting of the characters around Batman who make this universe great. It fits within one of this series' great accomplishment: this is a Batman book that hardly needs him to carry each scene. His presence is always felt though, and that's enough. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Sharna Jahangir Mar 10, 2018

    Issue #6 loses isn't about politics. Gotham thrives off the drama, and so it would be a loss if we don't see the family break. There's much more to it; the ending is what was expected (spoilers!) Of course this was all set up and we need a hero! But, what are those pills doing to him and did Napier just call Harley Quinn a "Hot Topic shoplifter"? Because I lost it in laughter; ending Friday night by heading out in Harley Quinn's jacket curtsey of Hot Topic, thanks for the laugh! I needed it in the midst of all that pain. Can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Adil Syed Mar 7, 2018

    Yet another issue that continues a riveting narrative with gorgeous art. This issue has everything; including an incredible car chase sequence, a brutal fistfight, characters coming to terms with the consequences of their own actions and a fresh take on a classic villain. That's all without mentioning the cliffhanger and the potential return of the greatest villain of them all. An all-time classic Batman story moves gracefully into its final act. Read Full Review

    This mini-series has been so well done and exciting all around and this issue is no different. Im sad knowing this series will be ending soon, but very excited to see how it ends. It has been such a unique take on the Batman and Joker dynamic. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Shawn A. Warner Mar 7, 2018

    This issue offers some of the strongest character work thus far while propelling the plot forward and never skimping on the action. One of the fastest paced issues in the series, this one starts off strong but really hits its stride in the final act of the issue, cover to cover this one kills. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 7, 2018

    White Knight #6 is the first issue of the series that leaves me cold. It has a few strong beats, and it's never awful, but I miss what this book was. The artwork is excellent, as usual, but overall, I'm disappointed. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Mar 7, 2018

    Batman: White Knight #6 isn't a horrible comic book despite my complaints throughout this review, and Batman: White Knight isn't a bad comic book mini-series, both offer an interesting spin on very well worn characters. And chapter #6 introduces some fairly novel wrinkles to the story. I guess I was expecting much more with a brilliant, accomplished creator such as Sean Murphy at the helm. Read Full Review

    Murphy is killing with his artwork, storytelling and world-building.

    The entire run so far is rock solid, and equally consistent. The latest issue keeps everything that made White Knight an instant classic, pushing the story forward with one of the biggest cliffhangers so far.
    Characters, as usual, are fleshed out and serve proper roles, and the art is consistent, having its unique style as well as charm.
    I really enjoyed this issue. White Knight is one of the best Batman elseworld stories, heck, best Batman stories in general, in a while. Simply outstanding.

    The perfect run of Murphy keep going ... And that didn't slow down. No that take more creative surprising moments.
    It you want a good Batman Joker story, you have to read this one. It's easily my favorite.
    Some moment can have a "no he will not go there" or "Maybe there he fulsome". But man what a story.

    Cover - The variant with Babs. Nice but not related 1/2
    Writing - Love Murphy 3/3
    Arts - Love Murphy too. His Nightwing with some beard is so nice. 3/3
    Feeling - Batman is down ... Hail to Batman ! 2/2

    While it lacked some of the nuance of the previous issues, the art is as vibrant as ever, including a dynamic car chase. Revelations and character choices continue to make this an all-time great in the making, provided it sticks the landing in the last two issues.

    The series in general has been a pretty good surprise. I was down on it to start because I was hesitant on a story that had Joker as the hero and Batman as the villain. But again, I have been pleasantly surprised.

    This issue shows the new GCPD with the help of Duke, Gordon, Bullock, and Nightwing to trap Batman and take him down. I loved this part the most. I wondered why Gordon was in a car blind but once I saw the bright lights flashing, it all came together.

    Nice trap even though it didn't completely work. They needed the help of Jack Napier fighting an injured Batman to ultimately take him down. Great scene with Batman carried over Jacks shoulders.

    So now we are at the beginning of the story again where we saw Batman trapped in Arkham. And finally we get the Joker back, which we all knew would happen at some point.

    Parts I wasn't a fan of: the freeze-thomas Wayne connection. I didn't totally follow it all and was a bit confused with what I was supposed to get out of it other than, Freeze was friends with Thomas and that Freezes Dad built the big weapon used to freeze the city.

    I see this book heading to Batman and Joker ( not Jack) working together to take down Neo Joker, which I'm also not a fan of. I thought the idea of two Harley's was a interesting idea but her becoming the big villain of the story... I'm not a fan. BUT, I would love to see Joker step up and become the villain we know we truly is.

    If you like what you heard, love talking all types of comics, and are interested in joining a comic chat group, hit me up at or @dispatchdcu on twitter. Catch you all later! Peace
