Deep in an abandoned Kobra safe house is a device able to access the dream powers of John Dee, a.k.a. Doctor Destiny. As heroes across the world succumb to nightmares, Angel Breaker wants it. Now, to infiltrate a hall of horrors, she'll need the help of a professional thief-the man known as Raptor. But Angel Breaker and Raptor aren’t exactly friends. Can the mysterious merc trust a man who feels nothing but grudges as the strange pair encounter a horror as old as the Coda Sisterhood and even more dangerous? While the world sleeps, Angel Breaker might be the final girl still awake!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 28, 2023

    Once again, this particular summer crossover shows that the peripheral inhabitants of the DC Universe have quite a bit of potential in and of themselves. It seems kind of strange to think that characters that have been around forever still have as much momentum as they do given how often characters like this pop up. Its nice to see Angel in her own series, even if its only going to be for a couple of months. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 25, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Angel Breaker #1 is fantastic. The story would be amazing even if it weren't a tie-in to Knight Terrors, but it allows the book to exist and make a fantastic final twist. Read Full Review

    Overall, I don't know that this issue told us too much about Angel BreakerRaptor may still be the more fleshed-out character herebut Seeley is one of the DCU's most effective horror writers and he's created a compelling new villain here. Hopefully this is the start of more DC work for him. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Jul 25, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Angel Breaker #1is and was always going to be the odd man out in terms of Knight Terrorstie-ins. It ties together some minor DC stories from the past year, working to help pepper the growing legacy of the relatively new Angel Breaker with some more stories to call her own. However, it has to play things safe and sound, leaving the overall book seem needless in the grand scheme of both this event and the ongoingDawn of DC, something this creative team should've been integral to from the get go.

    It's cool to see DC giving a character like Angel Breaker some shine in this major event. And it's even cooler to see them giving her a good story to boot. Read this issue if you are a fan of the character, a follower of this series, or both. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    KNIGHT TERRORS ANGEL BREAKER #1 is an interesting case. On one hand, I thought Tim Seeley’s story about a newer character to the DC universe was unique, well-written, and offered one of the more interesting connections to the main Knight Terrors event. On the other hand, the direction the story went in made it feel less like an event tie-in and more like a standalone story that existed outside the event altogether. I think I wanted more of this story? But I didn’t want it in the context of Knight Terrors.

    Seeley uses the first part of the book to catch readers up to speed on who Angel Breaker is (she was only recently introduced during the Shadow War storyline) and why she’s involved in this event. She enlists the help of more

    This is wack as fuck and if you like it, I seriously question if you were dropped on your head as a baby.
