Insomnia’s Sleepless Queen has transformed Robotman into one of her knights, and now the hunt is on for Zatanna to join them! If the Sleepless Knights succeed in making her one of their own, the Earth will never wake from its unending nightmare. Powerful magic comes with a powerful price, so Zatanna must decide whether she’s willing to pay it to save the world. Which means things aren’t looking good for Robotman!

    While Knight Terrors: Zatanna #2 does deliver a satisfying conclusion to this foray, we're not done with Zatanna or Cliff's part in this story, nor is their team up complete. I fully recommend this two issue set and looking forward to more, in Knight Terrors: Night's End! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 8, 2023

    Knight Terrors: Zatanna #2 is straightforward but superb. Straightforward isnt a criticism, as it makes the story so effective. It means the plot moves quickly and seamlessly, not weighed down by pages and pages of exposition. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Chad Burdette Aug 8, 2023

    Knight Terrors - Zatanna #2 is an exciting and worthwhile tie-in to the overall Knight Terrors event. Though Zatanna's difficult past with her father is nothing new, this limited series, in the given two issues, was able to concisely deconstruct and then rebuild Zatanna as a character while giving a believable and satisfying ending before reuniting Hex & Violence.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 8, 2023

    This is a great example of how to do one of these minis, not by rehashing what we already know but by pulling back the curtain on characters we haven't seen get a focus and introducing us to new stories about them. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Christopher R. Ford Oct 30, 2023

    A well-done introspective exploration of what drives, molds, and scares heroes is always welcomed. And despite her parental issues being well traveled territory, it is presented here in a unique and emotionally relatable way. And the fact that her enemies are trying to take her alive hints at her importance to the (hopefully) epic finale. Readers of Zatanna and Knight Terror should definitely check this issue out.

    The Comic Book Spot - Jamie Remolde Aug 11, 2023

    A good ending to this mini arc. The art and writing is solid however I would have liked to have seen more of how Zatanna has paid the price for her magic. The death and harm to her loved ones can be shown as a powerful price a price that Cliff seems to have had to pay as well. Read Full Review

    Knight Terrors: Zatanna simply doesn't have enough going on to justify the series' existence with its conclusion, though Baldeon is able to give the limited series some just via the artwork. Read Full Review

    Weaker than the first, that is for sure. Still enjoy it overall, but lack a bit. Like Zatanna is still great (her father haunting her felt a bit jarring but whatever), and the final battle, trickery is great (honestly the last 3 pages are like 9.5/10), but they cant save the front half which isnt bad, but lacks a bit of punch.

    All in all, the ending is great and Robotman still has some standout moments.

    If the first part of Zatanna’s story was an example of what an event tie-in should be, KNIGHT TERRORS ZATANNA #2 is an example of how a tie-in can stumble under the weight of the event.

    My biggest complaint with this issue is the fact that Zatanna is facing off with the Sleepless Knights in the same week they’re also battling Deadman, Sandman, and Damian in Joshua Williamson’s KNIGHT TERRORS #3. Even if both issues are happening at different points in the story’s timeline, it was disorienting to see them be the losing antagonists twice in the same week. Maybe Insomnia should have gotten some better hench-people? I don’t blame Culver for this, as he’s only continuing where his story left off, but it definitely took th more
