With issue 8, DC winds up the Batman: White Knight miniseries. And it’s quite a wrap-up!

As we tend to remember, The Joker is out of Arkham, heavily medicated until he seems normal. And working at demonizing Batman. Little by little (and issue by issue), Joker has bent public opinion against Batman. In the meantime, a group of villains have joined forces, and have paralyzed Gotham with a freezing ray. Oh, it’s bad news all around!

Issue 8 delivers the kicks and punches in an extra long (and pricier) story. Batgirl gets in on the action. Gordon revisits his recent opinions of Batman. The Joker and Harley have some thinking to do: help or hinder Batman?? And it’s a slammer of a showdown!

This is a fitting end to a great miniseries. Sean Murphy seals the deal with Script, Art, and Cover(s). Matt Hollingsworth swings a mean paintbox throughout.
There’s not much more to say here but to thoroughly recommend this final issue, especially if you have been following along since the beginning. It’s well written, the pacing is thunderous and compelling, and it’s a satisfying conclusion to the saga! Well done!

DC Comics, Batman White Knight 8, $4.99 for 29 pages of content. Rated Teen +

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!!
