Writer/artist Sean Gordon Murphy returns to his Batman 'Murphyverse' with a new limited series in 2019 titled Batman: Curse of the White Knight. First announced at Paste, Curse of the White Knight follows Murphy's previous Batman: White Knight series but adds Azrael to the mix.

"For Batman: Curse of the White Knight, I’m rewriting a former Batman ally to become a threat far greater than the Joker ever was," Murphy said.

"In this explosive sequel to Sean Murphy’s critically acclaimed blockbuster Batman: White Knight, the Joker recruits a savage partner to help him expose a shocking revelation about the Wayne family’s legacy and run Gotham into the ground," reads DC's description "As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from this corrupt conspiracy, the mystery of his ancestry unravels and deals a devastating blow to the Dark Knight. Exciting new villains and unexpected allies will clash across history in this unforgettable chapter of the White Knight saga - and the truth about the blood they shed will shake Gotham to its core!"

Murphy's Batman: White Knight was retroactively made part of DC's Black Label line, with a new printing of the collection due out this October.

Batan: Curse of the White Knight is scheduled to debut in 2019 - no specifics on the month or the length of the series has been announced at this time.
