    The artwork is dreadful on this series. Every page is inconsistent. If this series gets cancelled, the artist will have to shoulder much of the blame. Its kind of painful to look at. The inker is too soft on this artist and many of the poses attempt to be dynamic but exaggerate everything too much. Read Full Review

    Where this book falters in in terms of characterization. Holt himself is a bit bland. As a billionaire-industrialist-athlete-superhero-sex symbol, he's almost too perfect without any foibles to ground him. Karen Starr's role is interesting inasmuch as the ongoing mystery of her Power Girl status continues, but beyond that she doesn't bring much to the series. The villain is particularly bland. With an entire main cast that fail to capture much attention, this book still has some serious hurdles to overcome. Read Full Review

    The issue never diverts from its formulaic appeal, and only superficially separates the titular hero from the rest of the pack. An underwhelming effort overall. Read Full Review

    "Mister Terrific" is a gawky-looking, dull-reading comic. We already had an artist change on "Mister Terrific" before the series even debuted, but if this comic is going to stick around, everyone save for cover artist J.G. Jones probably needs to change. This is a creative team that, unfortunately, is misfiring from start to finish. Read Full Review
