    Comic Crusaders - Christopher R. Ford Sep 11, 2023

    Is this real or is Batman still trapped in his Nightmares? The ending raises more questions than delivers answers. But with a heartfelt moment in the midst of madness, Knight Terrors: Batman #2 manages to both grow the character and move along the greater story. Definitely a must read. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 1, 2023

    This series has been a core part of the event, and the ending nicely sets up one of Williamson's upcoming series as the race to the final showdown begins. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Chad Burdette Aug 1, 2023

    Williamson continues to make this limited series feel like it is less of a tie-in and more of a chance to tell a larger story than that being said in the main series. There are a lot of questions that remain unanswered that need to be addressed, but with three more installments to the main event, Williamson might pull it off in the end. Read Full Review

    March always finds a way of making a story compelling visually. The art is beautifully designed and detailed. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Max Byrne Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Batman #2 gives readers an enthralling continuation of the Knight Terrors saga and sets up a real sense of heightened stakes for the near future. The pieces are moving around the board with pace with a tangible feeling of impending doom in the ether. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Batman #2 is a stunning exercise in nightmarish art. Despite being an issue where the hero is trapped in a nightmare, it manages to pull on a few heartstrings, which is a plus! Read Full Review

    Anything goes people! Anything at all without purpose or direction. With almost every DC Comic following suit, I wonder if this event was merely to provide a break for many of the writers at the company. Whatever the case, this reviewer will be excited to get these ongoings back to their original happenings. As of right now, Id steer clear of Knight Terrors: Batman #2 as well the entire Knight Terrors Event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 31, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Batman #2 concludes the two-part tie-in with Batman delving deeper into his mind to get in touch with a little boy in Crime Alley. Guillem March's art is fantastic, and Williamson's script delivers plenty of exciting ideas about Batman's view of himself, but ultimately, this comic has no effect on the Knight Terrors event, and it boils down to a good-looking, superficial waste of time.

    AIPT - Piper Whitaker Aug 1, 2023

    All around, Knight Terrors: Batman #2 is a shaky but visually interesting end to the two-parter. I can only hope Williamson improves with the upcoming Batman and Robin series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 2, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Batman #2 has little to do with the overall Knight Terrors story, but worse than that, it's a basic and boring story. Guillem March's art is good, but Joshua Williamson continues to justify taking a summer break from DC Comics. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin Aug 1, 2023

    I really liked Williamson's “Abyss” arc when he was briefly writing Batman a while back. Even “Shadow War,” which I wasn't a fan of, was much better than this. So, it's very disappointing that this half-baked nothing of a comic is the best Williamson could put together for this event. I know he's capable of better but he also has a bad habit of writing comics that are "content, don't have any depth, and seem hastily written. Unfortunately, that's exactly what this is and I can't recommend it. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Aug 2, 2023

    To put it directly, Knight Terrors: Batman #2 is not good. Not only does the story of both this issue and the previous issue of Knight Terrors: Batman it continues from have no real story to speak of, it also sits in this weird space where it tries to propel the reader into a cliffhanger of sorts that forces them into the main event, but the story here is so nonexistent that you almost don't care.

    Williamson manages to drill the tiniest bit of worth out of his own event. Props, I guess?

    I didn't really find this as interesting as the previous issue, unfortunately. I liked what was set up in Issue 1, and I thought that stuff was interesting. However, there was more to the book than that. The stuff with Insomnia wasn't all that engaging, which could be attributed to the fact that I haven't been reading the main series for this event. I got more interested when we got back to Bruce seeing and talking with his younger self. The final few pages felt a little weird after how that aforementioned section of the book played out, though. It also doesn't help that I wasn't all that interested in the backup story. It was fine, but I wasn't the biggest fan of it. I'm really looking forward to Zdarsky's Batman and Williamson's Green Arr more

    I wasn’t shy in my dislike for the first half of this tie-in series and KNIGHT TERRORS BATMAN #2 did nothing to change my mind.

    We’re back in a familiar place, Batman confronting what happened in Crime Alley and what it did to chart his future path. We get a scene of Batman speaking to his younger self that offers a moment of emotion — centered around asking if his younger self would be proud of who he becomes — but that’s grasping at straws to look for a positive in an otherwise uninspired and unnecessary story.

    I don’t know if WIlliamson is spread too thin on this event, he’s also writing the main story and the Superman tie-in, but this Batman story has lacked a personality compared to some of the oth more
