Nesta edição a história de Batman: A Maldição Do Cavaleiro Branco desenvolvida por Sean Gordon Murphy ganha um fôlego bastante importante, até porque as últimas edições estavam bastante paradas. Também preciso dizer que perdi a edição 06, mas consegui acompanhar o que vem ocorrendo desde então por aqui. Achei legal que o autor conectou A Ordem de São Dumas com Jason Blood, o Demônio Etrigan. Também é interessante o plot twist que o autor estabelece fazendo Batman acreditar que não merece ser Batman e muito menos um Wayne, uma reviravolta que lembra A Saga do Clone do Homem-Aranha, mas que sabe aqui nesta minissérie seja melhor trabalhada. Veremos!

I think this will be a controversial issue for some with Batman revealing his identity and preparing to break his biggest rule, but I personally loved it all. I enjoy a writer taking some risks and giving us a different look, especially with a character that has been around as long as Batman. Maybe it has been done before and I just don't know about it. I'm ready for the inevitable showdown either way.

Los mundos alternativos te permiten hacer cosas arriesgadas y cambios permanentes de lo que debería ser una historia de cómic, pero que se vuelve imposible en una industria que busca "cambiar para que todo siga igual" y poder venderte otro número cada mes.

This was really carefully written. It pays tribute to so many influences that shaped Batman. This reads like a wonderful letter written by a fan of Batman, but with the expertise of a great storyteller.

“Batman: White Knight” was the most engaging Batman story of the past several years, both well written and superbly drawn. It contended with serious modern subjects, like race, gender and inequality. All the recent criticisms about the chauvinism and elitism of the caped crusader were brought to the frontline, although not taken to their ultimate consequences. It was Batman’s Watchmen moment. When I read about “Batman: The Curse of the White Batman”, I became both thrilled and worried. The risk of a slippery slope toward self-destruction was quite real. Since I could not wait for the graphic novel, I bought each issue separately. Sitting tight until the next one was particularly enervating. After several months, I finally got the full picture. The story is still well written and superbly drawn, but the slippery slope I was afraid of was taken with proud. In the end, there was not much left of the Nietszchean übermensch that Batman represented. His righteousness was replaced by self-doubt and lack of foresight. His causes proved to be misguided. Not even the name Wayne was spared. It was another Watchmen moment. However, this time I am not referring to the graphic novel, but instead to its HBO glum extension. As most stories, appreciating Batman required a high level of suspending disbelief. And enjoy the ride while it lasts! Sean Murphy said no to it all and, as consequence, it made me utterly sad.
