It’s a good sign when you reach the halfway point of a mini-series, and you want more issues!

Such is the case with DC comics’ Batman White Knight, at issue 4.

To summarize the story so far; The Joker is under medical treatment and is a sober, remade man. He’s Napier, and he’s running for Gotham City councilor!

He has strategically aligned himself with the leader of an inner-city neighborhood, long ignored by other politicians, and the police. People are beginning to come around to his well-worded speeches, and his plans for bringing all vigilantes under the umbrella of a new police unit.

This, unsurprisingly, does not amuse Batman or his team. But what can Batman do, when the tide begins to turn against his ‘expensive’ activities?
How far can the “former Joker” go in this straight trajectory, without stumbling, or relapsing?

I can not recommend this book more highly, it is simply excellent. A solid read, impeccably written and illustrated by Sean Murphy, and colored by Matt Hollingsworth. It captures the dialogue, the mood of the people of the streets, of night, of Gotham, of Batman.

It is a solid read, worth every penny you pay, just check it out!

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!!
