Jul 1, 2009
7 Hours
Ages 18+
Who better than BATMAN to protect the dangerous city of GOTHAM, where even the cops are crooks? But the latest imminent terror might be too much for the burgeoning CAPED CRUSADER, who is still carving out a place for himself in the minds of GOTHAM's criminals. There's a host of deadly new weapons in BATMAN's glittering, sinister city-in the hands of a psychotic mastermind called White Eyes. With his radical murder machine, the fiendish leader of GOTHAM's racist Bavarian Brotherhood can move beyond dealing drugs and hot guns to pursue his real passion: the white supremacist takeover of America.

ADVISORY: Due to subject matter, Dead White contains realistically harsh language, including racial epithets and suggested sexual content.

Really good Batman story by Alexander (Posted on 7/31/2014)
People, this is a Batman story as it should be done. Because of the adversaries in 'Dead White', the language used had to be stronger than GraphicAudio would usually use in their productions.

Remember, he was going up against racists who would use that type of language as being 'normal'. Because of that, I had no problem with it being used in context, but I won't be letting my sons listen to this particular Batman offering. But it's as Batman should be.... Hard and Gritty!

I liked that this was a story set early in Batman's career, with Jim Gordon still being a Captain, and the police wanting Batman as much as the criminals.

Hats off to everyone involved in this production, and as long as there is plenty of warning, and an Advisory given, I wouldn't mind more 'darker' and realistic Batman stories in the future either.
Superb Gritty Batman Audio Adventure by Timelord007 (Posted on 3/7/2014)
As I live in the UK, This was my first Graphic Audio release & being Batman is one of my favourite DC characters I was anticipating what these productions would be like.

I'm pleased to say I thought this was an outstanding Batman adaption a darker mature take on the Dark Knight character & Graphic Audio without doubt delivered a movie in your,mind experience with a excellent voice cast with Richard Rohan voicing a superb Batman.

The sound effects & music are the highest quality audiobooks I've listened too to date & the story was a audio page turner as I had to keep listening to see what happened next.

I can't recommend this audiobook enough & have purchased many DC & Marvel title's since.

Just a word of warning this Batman audiobook deals with mature themes & contains at times harsh language which maybe unsuitable for younger listeners.

But for the more mature Batman fans this is a outstanding quality production.
An okay story by Joseph (Posted on 1/30/2014)
It was a okay story, the music was good and so was the show, but it didn't feel like a Batman story.
Awesome by Bradley (Posted on 1/14/2014)
A Great pretrial of batman not just an action story.
Terrific! by Alex (Posted on 12/28/2013)
@Michael Dilworth I'm not sure why you gave this title only a 3 out of 5 when you said yourself that it was "excellently done" and a "well-rounded adaptation". Just because this title isn't for children doesn't make it any less of a great story/listening experience. That's why there's a warning in the description - at least online - that there's harsh language, AND the content rating is 18+ years old. That should've told you right there that it wasn't for kids. That doesn't make the story any less terrific or superbly done.

GA has a BUNCH of other titles (DC/Marvel Comics-related and not) that can be consumed by children, so don't knock one of the very FEW that's geared towards an adult. Not everything should be made so that 5-year olds can consume it. In fact, it'd be nice if there were a couple more just like it, IMHO.
Batman Dead White by Michael Dilworth (Posted on 12/8/2013)
Objectively speaking the story was excellently done. Although I enjoyed it it is the one story I will not let my children listen to. Inferno and Stone king oh yes but this one i listen to alone with headphones. the voice work blended with the music and sound effects equaled out to a well rounded adaptation but i would recomend it to adults
Black & White & Worth It by FlannDaddy (Posted on 10/11/2013)
This was a pretty good story and some interesting tempo changes. I enjoyed the way some of the characters were fleshed out but the voice acting is still par/sub par (unfortunately common from Graphic Audio voice actors). If you are new to audio dramas and are looking to get your feet wet while being entertained, this is a great place to start. Go ahead and down it. You'll thank me later.
Awesome by Wayne (Posted on 10/5/2013)
I would say if the cussing wasn't so intense at times this would be the the second best batman story. He fights a lot and every bat thing is used. The bat plane, bat motorcycle, and the bat car. It's awesome really if it wasn't for the cussing. Wish we could get an edited version.
Review by Chelsea (Posted on 9/17/2013)
This is the first graphic audiobook I heard-which got me hooked on graphic audio. The sound production is excellent and the voice acting overall is great. The voice actors of Batman, Alfred, and Gordon-all really stand out. They take a good batman story and make it great.

***This is not an audiobook for children under 14. (check out The Flash- Stop Motion or Crisis on Infinite Earths which is more important). There are many racial slurs and cussing (which is consistent with some of the characters) but not for younger kids.

I would love to see Graphic Audio make Batman Hush or The Long Halloween!
a moving book by dreAndre (Posted on 9/12/2013)
This batman book takes on a strong topic and it was interesting to see how batman would handle it.
My first Graphic Audio drama by Mats (Posted on 9/6/2013)
This was the first Graphic Audio production i listened to and this story is the reason i fell in love with Grapic Audio. The story is great, the production is great and Richard Rohans narration is some of the best I have ever heard.
Great movie in your mind by Brian (Posted on 8/29/2013)
really interesting
Review by adam (Posted on 8/28/2013)
it was a fun ride!
Review by joe campolo (Posted on 5/23/2013)
this is by far one of my favorite batman stories, comics included. white eyes turned out to be alot more interesting of a villain than i originally suspected. and i like detective cormac enough to want to see him again. this is the batman i grew up with, a dark character who strikes fear into darker villains. this may be a bit harsher than what you might expect from graphic audio but it's tone perfect for batman fans.
Review by Jeffery Noesser (Posted on 5/23/2013)
You can't go wrong with GA. Well produced (as always with GA). I wouldn't classify this story as one of myt favorite Batman stories, but it IS an interesting one. With 70 something years to choose from, they can't ALL be on the top 5 list. It has good elements with him fighting his inner demons and his past. I also really enjoy White Eyes as a villain. He views his actions as being on the moral high ground. So many baddies in comics are just out for destruction for destruction's sake. It makes more sense when the bad guy doesn't think of his actions as evil, but he just happens to think that views that the rest of the world would consider morally straight, are wrong.
Review by Jarod Leonard (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Excellent story, edge of your seat excitement, and the voice casting is spot on for the characters. I've listened to this production multiple times and it just doesn't get old.
Review by Demario Griffin (Posted on 5/23/2013)
AWESOME! Finally a Batman story without the usual PG-13 crime. Awesome!
Review by Thomas Rucker (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Excellent work! This is a high quality audio experience that no Batman fan should miss!
Review by Lee Klopack (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Great from start to finish. One of the best Graphic Audio offerings available to date. I highly recommend this darker adult tale to all Dark Knight comics and graphic novel fans! Bravo!
Review by Bryan Cash (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I'm an adult and this is frakkin fantastic. The story in "52" has still actually been my favorite audiobook so far, but this is very close. We that grew up on "superfriends" are grown now and we need real books with real adult subject matter and this book has it. Love graphic audio. Hope someone from there actually see's this post. Take a huge risk and record a graphic audio book that REALLY gets into some SEVERE ADULT political, ethical, philosophical, and yes sexual situations and content and it will be the highest selling recording you ever produce. Adults are listening to thESE, give us more. BATMAN: DEAD WHITE IS COMPLETELY FANTASTIC, BUY IT!
Review by Paulo Andrade (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Perfect in every sense. This is Batman in a contemporany setting but in his early carreer. Great villain too. I have to say 13 bucks for this stuff ? Man, you can't go wrong, it's soooo good ! George Lucas should hire GraphicAudio to do Star Wars.
Review by Jeff Burson (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I have loved everyone of the DC Comics by Graphic Audio. The production is awesome.

This was the one book that to me fell short.

Of all the awesome Batman stories out there did they pick this one? John Shirley's original story was poor. He did not understand Batman at all in the book. I can tell that the Graphic Audio staff did some great work to improve it.

THE MAIN REASON I did not care for this was the "Harsh Language". It was NOT listed on the box I bought at my local gas station. So when I popped the CD in my car audio with my two sons in tow I was shocked. They are older ( 10 & 12 ) but I do not want them to listen to this trash talk.

This is a "R" rated audiobook.

I hope Graphic Audio does not do this kind of book again with DC Comics. A stay word here or there is OK - I'm not a prude - but let's limit it so all audiences can enjoy this great work they do.
Review by Christopher McNally (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Excellent overall production. However, I found that the story and politics involved in this one a touch troubling and jarring. I can only assume that the author of the story is trying to channel some the darker Batman of the recent movies and work in more realistic domestic terrorism aspects. The story was fine, just not the Batman that I'm used to.
