FCBD 2023: Dawn of DC - Knight Terrors #1 Review


Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Chris Bachalo, Howard Porter
Cover Price: Free
Release Date: May 6, 2023

Knight Terrors (with a k) is fast approaching, and I know I am not the only one nervous about getting another DC Event, especially from Joshua Williamson.  It makes sense that it's happening in July and August, the spookiest months of the Year, but it's also happening when DC Comics should be ramping up the hype around its dawn of dc initiative, not put a 2-month halt to it.  I hope it doesn't end up being a jumping-off point for people because I have been enjoying some of the new Dawn of DC stuff so far.

With that said, FCBD gave readers their first glimpse at Knight Terrors, and while it's just a little preview, it's not bad… but I'm not sure there is enough here to change your mind either way about the upcoming event.  But let's see what it's all about…
