DC’s Batman: White Night #3 continues the story of the Joker’s new, sly attack on Batman.

In issue 1 and 2, we saw that the man known as the Joker had gone straight, and was now making a lot of sense to many residents of Gotham.

He was able to make several damning statements about corruption in the Gotham Police force and was beginning to sway public opinion against Batman.

Issue 3 continues in the same direction, with the Joker adding bricks to his wall of logic. Little by little, through strategic cunning, the “former” Joker, in a suit and tie, is demonstrating to the Gotham public the cost of having a vigilante Batman on the loose. There is lots of “Batman family” drama, and the supporting characters throughout are well shaped with strong presence.

I continue to be amazed at the fluidity of the storytelling and artwork of Sean Murphy (writer AND artist, with Matt Hollingsworth on colors). Without going on and on about it, this is definitely a strong Batman book, and should definitely be on your BUY list!

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words… the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let’s see!!
