I think this would have been a great Elseworlds story. I'm of the mind that not all people deserve to live after the shit they pull. Riddler definitely deserved to die, but you can't exactly have the Batman kill someone, let alone one of his most popular rogues.

Pants24 reviewed Batman: White Knight #1 Oct 5, 2017
7.0

The role reversal is a very interesting premise, and the Elseworlds nature of the story is a great way to open new possibilities in Gotham. There are numerous flaws in this issue, but it's too early in the series to dwell on them significantly, as the they may be addressed later in the run. The art is amazing, as usual, for Sean Gordon Murphy. I could have done with a little more subtlety with the more

Portentous, pretentious, depressing, dull, padded, poorly paced. Why is everyone raving about this? There was about six seconds of interesting plot development, but this is otherwise another overrated dud from King, whose work has gone from incredible to miserable in three short years.

The Vision was fantastic and Sheriff of Babylon was also great, but everything after that by him was mediocre at best. Beside the Catwoman-centered issues, which I really like.

This series has been phenomenal the whole way through. So much action, comedy, heart, and emotion in each issue. This issue ends the series in a fantastic way that I didn't see coming, though I don't think I wanted to. The build up and execution was near perfect. I can't recommend this book enough. 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank is easily one of my favorite comics of all time.

This comic is the embodiment of everything wrong with Marvel right now. I'm a huge Deadpool fan so I thought I'd give it a try. It was pure trash. I figured it was an obvious cash grab, but I was hoping it might be a fun, creative take the second time around. I was dead wrong. Bunn's Deadpool is nowhere near as good as Duggan's and just adds fuel to the fire for people who perceive Deadpool as bei more

If you came into this issue (or series for that matter) expecting straightforward answers to untied ends, you're gonna have a bad time. That's not King's style, and I, for one, enjoy that. Eventually, questions will be answered, but King's in no hurry to give us those answers. If you take this issue for what it is, a character study on Batman's humanity and happiness, you'll love this issue.
