BATMAN White Knight
« on: 08 December, 2017, 07:59:24 pm »
soooo, finally someone writes a Batman story that asks a few questions and challenges a whole load of assumptions.
This is the first Batman story I've enjoyed since Killing Joke.
Sean Murphy's story telling and art are exceptional, unfortunately the reboot button will be hit by DC at the end or Batty will come out on top yawn... Sean address's so much that is crap with the whole Gotham thing, it might be hard putting this joker back in the pack.


Discuss?

Yes, really enjoying this too Huff.
I've a very, very select non-2000AD pull list these days, and this is by far the best title I'm currently reading.
I've always been a huge fan of SGM's stylish art, and was happy to discover he's an accomplished writer too.

Not sure myself if a reset button will be pressed by issue 8- this is its own beast, locked within a separate continuity from any other series.

Regardless, highly recommended from the 3 issues I've read so far.
I've a feeling this will be a best seller collected edition for years to come.

Read the first three issues and am enjoying it.

I'm seeing it as a "what if" type tale, outside of continuity.

has anyone else suggested that there's two Harleys? I love the idea but don't read a lot of batman.

Same here. Very impressed with the three issues so far. Only picked it up because of SGM's artwork, if it was anybody else i may of give it a miss. Will definietly get it the tpb when that comes out just for the artwork.

(Ok I'll say it)Would love to see SGM do art for a Dredd story.

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

Case in point and SGM draws a mean chin. I think SGM's vehicles are some of the best drawn in comics atm.

I believe His Verdant Majesty has expressed his approval of MURPH-E's efforts but the ungrateful droid hasn't reciprocated with much interest in contributing to Tharg's mighty organ.

has anyone else suggested that there's two Harleys? I love the idea but don't read a lot of batman.

I've read Batman consistently for a few years now (G. Morrison & S. Snyder runs), but this is the first time two different Harley's have been mentioned to my knowledge.

White Knight is of course an 'Elseworlds' universe / continuity; Jason has been revealed to be the 1st Robin, and Alfred died in issue 3.


I'd love to see SGM working on Dredd too, but it probably won't happen for the same reason we won't be getting Jock back on Dredd: $

Yeah but judging by those its a real shame - bloody lovely, especially the lawmaster one.

The Eagle head and beak as Lawmaster front is so obvious, but I can't think of anyone else who has done that?

Sorry but I keep coming back to this image... there is soo much to like here: the confidence that the 'speed lines' are drawn with, the little chips thrown up, the bullet explosions, the bike design: beak and wings!, the framing, that chin... now if only they were Pepper Pot Blocks in the background and the chain had the right number of links  :lol:
