    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 15, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Superman #2 concludes one of the event’s most important tie-ins. Whilst it isn’t scary, it’s integral in telling parts of the wider crossover that the main book hasn’t. Sharing the same writer as the flagship book has meant that it can be used to fill gaps, whilst also being fantastic at telling stories for the individual characters. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Aug 18, 2023

    Between this 2 issue mini-series and the recent Superman Annual 2023, I have a very good feel for what Joshua Williamson thinks of Superman and his supporting cast. I think he gets it. I love how Supergirl has been treated in this book. I like how he used both to sow some future seeds.  Tom Reilly's art has some grit and worked beautifully here. Sign him up for a street level book!

    You've got some great scares, some great insights into the characters, and the rare Knight Terrors tie-in that may exceed the main mini. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Bergamini Aug 15, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Superman #2 is a great exploration into the minds of Supergirl, Superman, and Aquaman that will make you wonder why Supergirl and Aquaman didnt just have their own tie-ins. The art works perfectly in this issue, thematically tying into how Superman would reasonably react to a nightmare landscape. Read Full Review

    While the final conflict with Insomnia is only foreshadowed by the final pages, Superman's struggle to save himself and his dearest friends from the nightmares is resolved in a stylish fashion that can be appreciated entirely on its own. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 1, 2023

    The Knight Terrors crossover event has featured a lot of excellent writing. Williamson puts a solid end to a promising exploration into the darker realm of Supermans dreams. Its not nearly as impressive and intricate as it could have been...and given all of the weird, little mutations of the nightmare that other writers have put other heroes through throughout the summer, its excellent to see a more straight-ahead interpretation of the premise.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 15, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Superman #2 works as a tie-in that matters by telling a Superman-centric story with development that affects the main Knight Terrors arc. That said, the major development answers questions by creating plot holes, and Tom Reilly's art doesn't quite suit the nightmare aesthetic. Read Full Review
