Batman: White Knight #1 review

Batman: White Knight #1
Batman created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger
Script, art, covers by Sean Murphy
Colors and cover colors by Matt Hollingsworth
Letters by Todd Klein
Asst. Editor: Maggie Howell
Editor: Mark Doyle
DC Comics
Release date: October 4, 2017
Price: $3.99

First, I’ll state the obvious: Batman: White Knight #1 looks spectacular.

Sean Murphy‘s style is tailor made for Gotham City and its inhabitants. In the action-adventure series Chrononauts, he showed his range, packing each frame with so much kinetic energy it burst at the seams — but it’s in the shadows where Murphy shines brightest. He was born to illustrate Batman.

At the moment there are a handful of artists at the top of the food chain — Adam Hughes, Greg Capullo, Rafael Albuquerque — and Murphy is among the very best. Not to be overlooked, Matt Hollingsworth adds a pitch-perfect color palate to offset Murphy’s darkness, and the results are stunning.

NYCC 2017: Interview with Tales of Science-Fiction James Ninness

The Master of Horror John Carpenter and wife Sandy King Carpenter started Storm King Comics back in 2015. At this year’s New York Comic-Con this weekend, Storm King took over booth 2304 on the show floor with full displays of their catalogue. They featured their Halloween anthology series John Carpenter’s Tales For a HalloweeNight, which just released Vol. 3, and their new monthly sci-fi series, John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction. Sandy King Carpenter was there along with several writers and artists from the books, one amongst them was James Ninness. He has stories in each of the three HalloweeNight books as well as being the featured author for the first 3-part tale in the sci-fi anthology, an outer space thriller, Vault. Ninness took some time to talk to me about working with Storm King, his process, and what’s next for him.

New York Comic-Con is the perfect place to find new and exciting reading material specifically if you’re into the world of genre fiction. Look no further than booth #2304 on the show floor and meet Storm King Comics. You might recognize the name atop their titles, the Master of Horror, John Carpenter. His wife, producer and collaborator, Sandy King Carpenter is a renaissance woman. Producing John Carpenter films since the 1980s, she is an artist, writer, and the CEO and founder of Storm King Productions. In 2015, Storm King ventured into the world of comics and graphic novels, publishing Asylum which she co-created with John Carpenter and Thomas Ian Griffith. Storm King also created two anthology series; John Carpenter’s Tales For a HalloweeNight which just released its third annual compendium of horror tales, and John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction, which just completed its first story, a 3-part outer space saga, “Vault.” I got a chance to speak with Sandy King Carpenter about the latest releases, her influences, and the future of the brand.

At long last, the final issue of one of the best alliances the seventies could ever offer is here. In Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #6, our heroines find themselves outmaneuvered and outmatched! But things are not as bleak as you might think. Because while CASTRA has seemingly endless troops, our mighty ladies have backup of their own.

In this issue, Diana has recovered from her injury and she and Jaime race towards the great battle with the Fembots on Paradise Island. Modern technology meets sword and arrow as the two groups square off in melee combat. Armored up, our heroines literally drop into battle and take their place defending the home of the Amazons.
