    We only have one more issue of this series, and it’s bittersweet. On one hand, I can’t wait to see how everything comes together. On the other, it’s the last time we know we’re getting another chapter in this universe. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet.

    The Story: An intense, emotional and exciting story frim Murphy. The action is awesome, the plot has great energy and pacing and I love the build up throughout the issue to an amazing moment with Bruce and his allies. The Powers threat allows for some thrilling surprises and I cannot wait to see how this story comes to a conclusion. The Art: Murphy delivers some powerful and beautifully detailed art throughout the issue with fantastic and visually thrilling action mixed in with great character moments.

    Batman: Beyond the White Knight #7 doesn't miss a beat, giving us some good character moments and bringing together the series threads in an exciting way, all setting the stage for the final issue.

    Sean Murphy, Dave Stewart, and Andworld Design have created such a stunning and unique corner of the Batman universe in White Knight, and frankly, I'm sad that another chapter is about to come to a close. If the finale hits as hard as this though, we're in for something truly special.

    The penultimate issue of this long-running alternate universe delivers some of the best action of the entire series. (...) There are some genuinely emotional moments, but the entire subplot of the ghostly/holographic Joker who has been haunting Bruce continues to be a weird vestigial tail for the franchise that takes on another strange element this month.

    I’ve listened to interviews with Sean Gordon Murphy. He seems like a genuinely good guy who cares about listening to his fans as well as his critics. But I have to say, as someone who loved the White Knight universe when it started, this strikes me as a universe that has long run its course. I’m truly hoping that the final issue for this run really is the end for the entire White Knight universe.

    Are people tired of the White Knightverse yet? I mean I was never not tired of it, but I’m hoping that just maybe other people are getting sick of the same one-trick pony it’s been from day one. “Haha here’s good guy Joker isn’t he a blast?” Don’t worry, even though this version of the Joker is dead, he’s still somehow hanging around as some sort of psychic projection latched onto Bruce’s brain. It would have been a lot better if it was actual hallucinations, but no, it’s an actual possession of sorts, because as of this issue other people can see him now thanks to him possessing the hardware in Terry’s suit and operating a holoprojector from it. This is so stupid.
