    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 4, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Black Adam #1 shows how to terrify a man who looks fearless. Black Adam is perhaps the most powerful being among this first wave of heroes and villains affected by Insomnia, and so it is fascinating to see how he is brought crashing down and humbled. Read Full Review

    This Adam seems more like the wild card of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths rather than a villain, and the cliffhanger nicely positions him as a key player in the coming battle. Read Full Review

    As an addition to the Knight Terrors event, this didnt feel like it added much, however, Black Adam fans might enjoy the character having more of a presence in the DC Comic Universe. It remains to be seen if the story ends up better in the second half than the first half. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 8, 2023

    The Knight Terrors crossover event has been an interesting exercise in its opening week. Everything has hit the page with a particularly memorable impact. Haun finds some level of intensity in what he's putting to the page. So much of it seems to rest on the surface, but Haun is subtly placing deeper horrors in and around the edges of everything, which makes the Black Adam entry into the crossover well worth a look.

    Comic Crusaders - Christopher R. Ford Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Black Adam #1 is cool, it's intriguing, and it is short. Very short. 22 pages to be exact. And just when it starts getting good, it ends. There is a cliffhanger that raises more questions than it answers (on purpose of course). This is a teaser issue through and through. Fortunately, it does pique the curiosity to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Bryant Lucas Jul 6, 2023

    ConclusionKnight Terrors: Black Adam #1 feels like a generic tie-in to the larger event. It's not doing anything particularly special beyond confirming that Isis and Osiris are canonical characters post-Flashpoint and Huan script and art are both serviceable but nothing to write home about. While Batman's appearance at the end of the issue does pique my interest, I'm guessing that this tie-in won't matter in the larger scheme of the Knight Terrors story. Read Full Review
