I usually don’t want politics and comics in the same medium. Comics are an escape, and incorporating politics risks the chance of turning your audience off. But, that’s not the case with BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT, as Sean Gordon Murphy (writer and artist) has found the perfect middle ground with this title.

With each issue we see how he’s molded a story that moves its politics, instead of politics penning the story.

Murphy has somehow managed to transform Joker into a version that I truly despise– but in a great way. It’s not often writers take a character and move them forward to the point the new incarnation’s more interesting than its predecessor. Murphy’s succeeded.
