    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Ravager #2 evolves the horror in the tie-in. There is more urgency and all-out action on this issue, diluting the tension and trepidation of the previous chapter. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 1, 2023

    The two-issue structure of Knight Terrors: Ravager #2 allows for a tight, concise character exploration through the lens of slasher tropes and high-octane superheroic action. Brissons script weaves Ravagers past, inner doubts, and the terror of the Murder Man into a final product that provides a strong sense of catharsis for the character, with a bit of lingering doubt for the future. Paired with Soys art which blends the tones to create two distinct but cohesive action set-pieces full of monstrous spiders and evil blood men. The two-part story is an excellent way to sample the Stormwatch story unfolding in Batman: The Brave and the Bold with an original twist in the form of slasher tropes. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 1, 2023

    Overall, this story doesn't break any new groundBrisson is a very action-driven writer and this feels similar in tone to his other regular DC storiesbut it does give a great character some personal spotlight and ends on a creepy note that indicates that something might have come back from Rose's nightmare with her. Hopefully it'll continue to play out in Stormwatch. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Aug 5, 2023

    This is probably not the best story Knight Terrors, but at the same time, it is not really bad either. I particularly liked the characterization of Rose Wilson, and this story showcases her humanity very well. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 10, 2023

    There aren't very many traditional heroes who could register much intensity simply fighting monsters. Most of the more traditional-looking heroes have slain it so many over the years that it doesn't really feel like much on the page anymore. Ravager has enough of a dark edge about her that she can fight something like Murder Man and come across as being every bit as dangerous and monstrous as the monster itself. The inner journey here is also relatively straightforward, but Brisson and Soy put together a rendering of the story that has just enough momentum to keep it interesting through the final panels.  Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Christopher R. Ford Sep 13, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Ravager #2 is a satisfying conclusion to Ravager's arc in the series. She gets to show her softer side while remaining a cool action hero. There are hints as to what's going on in the real world and it also sets up more for adventures for Ravagerand perhaps the Bat Family. Ravager faces her deepest nightmare head-on, and even though it's not pretty, it's very entertaining. For those who like a side of action with their horror, this is an issue well worth checking out.

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 1, 2023

    I wanted more out of Knight Terrors: Ravager #2, especially after the slasher vibes of the first issue. It does have interesting ties to the real world and a future tale, but the stakes never feel all that high as you await the end. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Aug 1, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Ravager #2 ends with a cliffhanger that leads into the Brave and the Bold book? Why? If youre a huge fan of Ravager or this Knight Terrors storyline, pick the book up, but anyone else should pass on this. Read Full Review

    When the list of titles for Knight Terrors was announced, Ravager was one of the characters I was most surprised to see get her own event tie-in. The character hasn’t gotten the level of solo stories as others who also have their own tie-ins, so I was a bit cautious as to what we’d get and whether we’d see Rose as the main focus, or if DC and Ed Brisson would turn this into an ensemble story. Suffice it to say, Brisson proves with KNIGHT TERRORS: RAVAGER #2 that a standalone-Rose Wilson/Ravager story can be captivating and heartfelt without needing to rely on otherss (even though Stormwatch gets involved to some degree).

    Brisson continues the strong character development he introduced in the first issue and expands upon i more

    Wish this was a mini-series instead of whatever this dumb event is.
