The world of Batman: White Knight expands with this standalone tale! On the
night of Bruce Wayne's traumatic birth, Victor Fries must intervene to save the
lives of Martha Wayne and the future Batman. As the evening unfolds, Victor
distracts Thomas with the incredible tale of his own father figures-one a Nazi,
the other a Jew-and their complex connection to Wayne Laboratories. As the Third
Reich roars into power, the deep friendship and working relationship between the
Baron von Fries and his research partner, Jacob Smithstein, is in crisis.
Ordered by Himmler to speed development of their cryotechnology in service of
world domination, Smithstein is forced to go into hiding and compromise his
moral code in order to save his wife and infant daughter, Nora, from persecution
and certain death. When the S.S. ramps up surveillance over the project, young
Victor begins to question his father's true allegiance. Both families are driven
toward an impossible choice and a sinister standoff, and Victor makes a pact
with Smithstein that will ripple through generations. Writer Sean Murphy and
artist Klaus Janson craft an important entry into the White Knight Universe.
