Sean Murphy’s Batman: White Knight Sequel Announced

by Oliver MacNamee

Entitled Batman: Curse of the White Knight, this limited series will be a sequel to Sean Murphy’s critically-acclaimed Batman saga of last year, and will be published under DC’s new Black Label imprint. We don’t know too much, but from the official image shared by DC, we know it’ll feature Azrael as a large focus of the comic, I imagine.

In Batman: Curse of the White Knight the Joker recruits a savage partner to help him expose a shocking revelation about the Wayne family’s legacy and run Gotham into the ground. As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from this corrupt conspiracy, the mystery of his ancestry unravels and deals a devastating blow to The Dark Knight. Exciting new villains and unexpected allies will clash across history in this unforgettable chapter of The White Knight saga, and the truth about the blood they shed will shake Gotham to its very core!

Look out for it in 2019 with the trade of Batman: White Knight out this Wednesday, the 3rd of October. Not the more adult, uncensored version as some would have hoped, but the censored strip as it appeared in the original series. But, here’s hoping to an uncensored version from DC’s Black Label. Maybe next year and ahead of this new book?
