Gotham City has changed tremendously in the 10 years since Bruce Wayne gave away his entire fortune and went to prison. After Terry McGinnis steals the Beyond suit for Gotham Motors CEO Derek Powers, Bruce escapes prison in order to try and stop Terry. And in order to do so, he's going to have to enlist the help of old friends...and old enemies.
Writer and Artist Sean Murphy is continuing his Batman: White Knight universe with Batman: Beyond the White Knight from DC Black Label. The first issue in the eight issue mini-series will be available at comic book shops and digital retailers on March 29, 2022.
“I really missed working in Gotham and it feels so great to be back,” said Murphy. “Drawing Neo-Gotham as an upgraded, retrofitted futurescape has been a blast. I'm working hard to blend the Beyond aesthetic with the White Knight world. Batman Beyond and Terry McGinnis fans will get everything they loved about the animated series, as well as a few twists.

A lot can change in 10 years, especially in Gotham! Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne, may be behind bars, but the real criminals are still out there. Gotham Motors CEO Derek Powers has seized control of the Wayne family’s assets and is using them to transform the GTO and the city they’ve sworn to protect. Crime is down, but at what cost?
A new Batman has emerged in the city, and only Bruce is fully aware of the dangers to come. It’s time to destroy the mantle for good, but he’ll need one of his forgotten sons’ help to do so. Enter Jason Todd...the first Robin?!
