After discovering the truth about the namesake of the Wayne lineage, Batman and Bruce Wayne are now in shambles. In order to save Gotham, Batman realizes that he will have to make a decision that will cost him more than what he has already lost.

If Gotham is to be saved from the wrath of Azrael, Batman will have to pay the ultimate price no matter the cost. Even if it means destroying Batman.

How is it possible for each issue to surpass the last issue in story and quality with ease? Sean Gordon Murphy continues to break new grounds with Curse of the White Knight, and if you thought from killing off rogues and classic characters were one thing, or shaking up the foundations of Batman’s world is another, then you ain’t seen nothing yet. Batman is facing a big dilemma, one that forces Batman to make very huge decisions that will forever change the course of his life, the bat family, and the GCPD as a whole.

After discovering that he is family lineage of the Wayne name is untrue, and realizing that despite all of his efforts, unbeknownst to him, he was the Elites biggest client, it’s clear and tragically noble to see why Batman makes the kinds of decisions that he makes within this series. Murphy continues to display his understanding of Batman, while also, doing new things with the character that a Black Label book could ever achieve.

It’s interesting to see Batman in his element while also being out of his element, back against the wall, and trying to maintain something that couldn’t last. It’s why a title such as this, why an issue such as this is so great. Here are fictional characters that feel real, which only feels more believable in regards to how they respond to situations that have actual real life and death implications. Harley Quinn continues to be one of the best standouts of this book, alongside the rest of the cast.

Aside from the writing in this issue, Murphy continues to deliver wonderful art alongside Matt Hollingsworth whose coloring continues to make this book shine. This is a highly recommended book, that continues to live up to the hype, and it would be a shame for anyone not to pick this book up. It’s wild to think that there is only one issue left of this series, and yet not once has there been a delay upon release. I absolutely recommend running out to buy this issue for new comic book day.
