In celebration of the legendary imprint founded by Marvel's CCO Joe Quesada, a new crop of talent stands poised to tell a groundbreaking story across the Marvel Universe!
In the cemetery, the blind man does not know who he is, or why he has come to this particular grave at this moment.
He doesn't know the burly police officer with the wild story who has approached him.
Or the strangely intense man who sits in the rear seat of the patrol car, his eyes flashing green.
But all of that is about to change.
Because Matt Murdock is beginning to remember...
In a colorless world without heroes, the spark of light...must come fr more

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Nov 23, 2018

    This is an intriguing tale, unlike any Marvel has given us before and it's interesting to see the whole story played out. The cool thing is that they're not rushing it. They pay attention to little details and take their time to tell the tale. The guessing game is why we keep coming back for more. We turn each page carefully, not knowing whose memory will return first and what will trigger that memory, the final page is a real mind blower, leading us to crave the next issue now! We don't want to wait the extra month. Awesome work Marvel, keep it up!= Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Raphael Soohoo Nov 21, 2018

    Henrichon's art and Rosenberg's writing combine for a very strong chapter in this mystery. The heroes are slowly coming together, but there are still no answers. Will they find them? Do they want to? Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Chino DT Nov 21, 2018

    Strange and interesting comic although with an argument already seen previously about forgotten heroes with alternate realities, something similar to what we seen in House of M and one of the bases of the comic “Wanted” but reduced to the small world of Hell Kitchen with its known heroes, Daredevil, Punisher and Elektra, with the addition of Hulk, an event to follow closely and see where all this amnesiac situation ends.

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Nov 21, 2018

    If you missed the first installment this series, Marvel Knights: 20th #2 is a surprisingly good jumping-on point, and the air of mystery it keeps afloat is more than enough to hook the new and retain the faithful. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Nov 22, 2018

    A well-crafted story that reads like a love letter to the storied history of Marvel Knights. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 21, 2018

    This story is getting good both for what we see on the page, but also for the personal drama bubbling under the surface. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 22, 2018

    Marvel Knights #2 (of 6) is turning into a pretty good little mini-series. Donny Cates and Matthew Rosenberg continue to let this story slowly developand simmer. The rotating artist for each issue also keeps me interested. I would normally like a single artist but it feels it feels like having a different artist with each issue fits the tone of the series well. Niko Henrichon delivered some great pages in this issue and I am excited to see what Damian Couceiro brings with the next issue! Read Full Review

    While I can't say that the new Marvel Knights comic quite reaches the heights of Bendis' Daredevil or Alias, this is still a fun read, especially for fans of Marvel's street-level heroes. Read Full Review

    "Marvel Knights" #2 is a paranoid exploration into the gritty underbelly of Marvel's street-level heroes. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Nov 22, 2018

    Marvel Knights #2 still hasn't quite inspired the confidence in me that this creative team should have by this point. While it is quite fun to read, it leaves you feeling empty and unsure. With Henrichon off pencils next issue, I'm going to need to see a significant improvement in the story department to get me to stick with this book. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Nov 21, 2018

    Marvel Knights 20th is a pass for me so far. It’s apparently out of continuity and frankly just not doing enough—fast enough—to hold my interest. An overall clunky script that isn’t done any favors by the pencils, can only be improved so much by solid coloring. If you were on the fence after last issue like me, skip this one. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 21, 2018

    I want to like this series, but there isn't enough here to care about any of it. Where does it take place, what is going on in this world, and why should we care about these befuddled heroes who are bound to figure out they were previously heroes anyway? It's a frustrating experience. Read Full Review
