Batman: Curse of the White Knight Creator Sheds Light on Upcoming DC Title

Batman: White Knight showed us a world in which The Joker is a hero and Batman is the villain. In the sequel, Batman: Curse of the White Knight, we will see the same dynamic, albeit with a different story.

"Jack Napier almost took everything from Batman--but that was nothing compared to what Joker and Azrael have planned," writer/artist Sean Gordon Murphy told IGN. "Not only are they planning on destroying the Dark Knight, but they'll undo the Waynes in way you never thought possible. For Curse of the White Knight, I wanted to do a historical story about the Waynes in Gotham. And talk about how deeply both he and Joker are tied to the city. Gotham seems to be perpetually cursed by crime--this story talks about that curse, and how it's linked to the founding of Gotham Village in 1665."
