As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from danger, the mystery of his ancestry unravels, dealing a devastating blow to the Dark Knight. Exciting new villains and unexpected allies will clash in this unforgettable chapter of the White Knight saga—and the truth about the blood they shed will shake Gotham to its core! – DC Comics
Batman: Curse of the White Night starts back in 1685 at Arkham Manor hinting at a curse that turns people into monsters. The start of the story holds so much weight behind it; you can’t help but find out what comes next.
In only 24 pages a lot is going on, but it does not feel like a lot because of how smooth and engaging the story is, and that is thanks to Sean Murphy! This is where it gets hard for me since I haven’t read Batman: White Knight but of what I have heard on Batman: White Knight or seems like he is very consistent with his worldbuilding and character development with Batman, where he is struggling if he should still be Batman and the rest of the characters.
There is a specific page that piqued my interest because of the Lettering. You don’t see much cursive in comics, but this was done correctly, from the setting Batman: Curse of the White Knight is taking place to the overall mood of the letter. If they used cursive anywhere else, it would have felt a little weird and off-putting, but the way, And World Design’s used the cursive it felt engaging.
Sean Murphy is killing it, please go out and pick up Batman: Curse of the White Knight at your local comic book stores or at Amazon it is a must-read. Also, if you have not picked up Batman: White Knight do not make the same mistake I did! Go pick up Batman: White Knight if you have not read it yet!
