This issue wasn’t as exciting& fun like issue 3,4&5, but that’s mainly because it’s the conclusion to this story.
Batman finally snapped out of Scarecrow‘s fear gas& we learn, that everything, that happened since issue 4 was just an illusion in Batman‘s head. What makes this more boring for Scarecrow, but more interesting, when it comes to Batman, since nothing in this story could h more

I hoped more for a cool Scarecrow vs. Batman cover, since this was the finale.

Reitherschach reviewed Die #2 Jan 9, 2019

I generally admire but don't actually like Kieron Gillen's writing very much: it's technically impressive but emotionally cold. But I am absolutely loving Die. The writing is as great as always but it feels more immediate somehow. Also, plot-wise, a twist I'd have expected to be saved for the end of the first arc instead has already happened as this issue opens, and it's great and unexpected. Can' more

Remember last time, when we said "Goth Jumanji"? As the bleak, austere fantasy-horror ramps up, we start underlining the word "Goth" in black marker until we cut a hole through the page.

Loved this issue. Scarecrow is continuing to give therapy to Batman& it’s fun to watch. This series manages to mix sad scenes like Batman‘s past& his unachievable goal with funny scenes like how Batman sees himself. The art intensifies both. I like how the story isn’t solely told with words, but also with art.
Compared to the main Batman run Kings of Fear shows more understanding for B more

I genuinely enjoyed this a ton. The art really stands out and tells the story better than words could've. But the writing isn't bad either. This one-off story is probably the most enjoyable Batman story I've read recently.

Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he's back in the mask to save her, but no one-not his wife, the mafia, or the cops-is happy that he's out of retirement.
