    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Black Adam #2 completely encapsulates the worst nightmare of its character. Black Adam is rarely deconstructed in such detail, but Haun does an excellent job of hammering home his insecurities. Read Full Review

    Fans of Black Adam will appreciate this follow up to the first issue. The insight, and satisfying conclusion to this one-shot enhances the first issue and manages to have some character insight while focusing on its role as being a tie in to a major event. Read Full Review

    The continues the good work of writers like Priest and Josh Williamson in making Black Adam more of a fleshed-out antihero rather than a one-note villain. Dwayne Johnson would no double be pleased. Read Full Review

    Like most tie-ins, Knight Terrors: Black Adam #2 feels a little superfluous at best. It has nothing to do with Christopher Priest's recent work on the character, and it doesn't feel super relevant to the larger Knight Terrorsevent, unless the last page somehow relates to Insomnia's overarching plan. However, usually, these things are simply background noise within the larger narrative. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Aug 1, 2023

    What works best about Knight Terrors: Black Adam is how it can function as an introspective story regardless of the event. Despite the overall underwhelming appeal of Knight Terrors' current narrative, some of the looser connected stories seem to fare better. When the story guides Adam through a tour of his guilty psyche, it stands beyond whatever treasure hunt the big bad is up to. Unfortunately, there are plenty of issues with the narrative and artwork to call buying this issue into question. Outside of the spooky atmosphere and personal aspect to the story, most of what transpires is too shallow for the overarching or standalone stories. Simply put, it is extremely disposable until proven otherwise. As it nears its conclusion, I hope it can wrap itself up in a way that services either narrative nicely. Read Full Review

    Knight Terrors: Black Adam is ultimately a pair of issues reserved only for the most intense Black Adam (or "Knight Terrors") completionists. Read Full Review

    An incredibly mediocre affair that makes you want to drown yourself to escape it.

    Batman shows up in a Knight Terrors tie-in and guess what…much like his own tie-in’s conclusion, KNIGHT TERRORS: BLACK ADAM #2 is a clunky dud as well.

    Written and drawn by Jeremy Huan, the issue picks up with Black Adam confronting Batman, who turns out to be just the body of Batman possessed by Deadman. He explains that Black Adam is existing in an “in-between” world and he’s able to bleed through worlds. It’s an interesting concept that is quickly disregarded when Deadman is pulled away and doesn’t get brought up again the entire issue. Unless this gets explained in Knights End (the issue ends by saying it’ll be concluded in the finale), it’s a really puzzling plot device for Huan to introduce at this point more
