Like its predecessor, this new series will be eight issues long, and it will be a direct sequel to the first comic. The plot here involves The Joker (who was sort of reformed in the first story) recruiting a new partner (which is probably Azrael) to help him expose a shocking and presumably-damning revelation about the Wayne family. Batman will be forced to face his enemies and a long-buried truth.
The book is being released under the DC Black Label imprint. Full PR along with the first preview artwork can be found below:
This July, DC will launch the next chapter of Sean Murphy’s monumental Bat-saga with BATMAN: CURSE OF THE WHITE KNIGHT from DC Black Label. The eagerly awaited sequel to Murphy’s best-selling BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT will debut July 24, 2019.
Following the critical success of BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT, Murphy is putting a new spin on this upcoming series, with The Joker recruiting a new, savage partner to help him expose a shocking revelation about the Wayne family’s legacy. As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from this corrupt conspiracy, the Dark Knight will come face to face with the horrifying truth.
Murphy’s BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT delivered an alternative examination of the relationship between the greatest rivals in the DC Universe. By curing The Joker of his insanity and making him an advocate for good in Gotham City, Murphy led Batman down his own path of madness. And now the story continues in this exciting new miniseries.
BATMAN: CURSE OF THE WHITE KNIGHT is an eight-issue series, releasing monthly.
