Sean Murphy returns with ‘Batman: Beyond the White Knight’ #1 in March

Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne, is behind bars, but the real criminals are still out there.

Press Release

DC Comics has announced a new Batman Beyond series set within the DC Black Label Batman storyline by Sean Murphy. Following Batman: White Knight, Batman: Beyond the White Knight is an eight-issue miniseries set to release in comic book shops on March 29, 2022. Murphy will write and draw the series with Dave Stewart on colors.

“I really missed working in Gotham and it feels so great to be back,” said Murphy in a statement sent to AIPT. “Drawing Neo-Gotham as an upgraded, retrofitted futurescape has been a blast. I’m working hard to blend the Beyond aesthetic with the White Knight world. Batman Beyond and Terry McGinnis fans will get everything they loved about the animated series, as well as a few twists.”

Dubbed a sequel to Batman: White Knight, what’s it about?

A lot can change in 10 years, especially in Gotham City! Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne, may be behind bars, but the real criminals are still out there. Gotham Motors CEO Derek Powers has seized control of the Wayne family’s assets and is using them to transform the GTO and the city they’ve sworn to protect. Crime is down, but at what cost?

A new Batman has emerged in the city, and only Bruce is fully aware of the dangers to come. It’s time to destroy the mantle for good, but he’ll need one of his forgotten sons’ help to do so. Enter Jason Todd.
