    Such a fun little yarn. I wish we had a Son monthly, these guys at these ages, getting into mischief and adventure. It is the perfect gateway comic for kids, more mature than Tiny Titans, less mature than Detective. Maybe, just maybe, we'll get more untold tales like this. I can only hope. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 11, 2022

    A great short story that is filled twists, action and humor. I loved the dark undertones of the plot and what is being teased within it as well as the beautifully dark and stylish art. Read Full Review

    Overall, eight fairly effective stories with some great ones, but the whole thing only loosely fits together into a theme. Read Full Review

    Nerdly - Dean Fuller Oct 26, 2022

    Overall, this was a very solid book. Plenty of fun, though a bit light on actual Halloween content. No real chills or scares, just lightly themed stories. My personal favourites were The Phantom Stranger story, the JSA tale, and the Deadman effort, all of which brought a smile to the face and fulfilled the editorial brief Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Oct 13, 2022

    There really is a little of everything here, from lighthearted stories like the Super Sons adventure to more serious ones that focus on some of DC's darker sides Terrors Through Time is an overall solid read. No matter what you're looking for I can say there's probably something tucked in here that will scratch that October, cool weather, scary story itch. The sheer variety of stories and creative teams in this anthology is enough to make this book worth checking out, especially if you're looking for something to add to your Halloween reading list. We hope you all enjoy reading through it as much as we did! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 11, 2022

    DC's Terrors Through Time #1 salvaged about three reasonably entertaining tales that I wouldn't have minded seeing as a full issue instead of a truncated, brief, story. Otherwise, readers will discover that there just wasn't much terror or horror incorporated throughout the issue. Over half of the stories didn't keep my interest and their length was simply too short to lock in my attention. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Connor Casey Oct 12, 2022

    Most of the installments are admittedly skippable and a couple don't even really bother with the theme. But if you feel so inclined, read the Phantom Stranger's "The Longest Night," Super Sons' "Trick or Treat" and the Damian Wayne & Deadman team-up at the end. Read Full Review
