The Terrifics...terminated! The team has called it quits and gone their separate ways-with less-than-terrific results. Plastic Man meets his estranged wife and son, now developing his own plastic powers; Metamorpho is still stuck in his human form as Rex Mason, unemployed, unqualified and going broke; Phantom Girl's stuck in an arranged marriage back on her homeworld of Bgztl; and Mr. Terrific hunts the escaped Doc Dread, who travels the Multiverse collecting alternate Mr. Terrifics for murder-sport.

    DC has seem to catch lightning in a bottle with this series. They have found the exact right combination of characters, writer, and artists to produce a truly wonderful reading experience. I just hope that DC appreciates what a gem they have in this title and allows the magic to continue unimpeded. Read Full Review

    Jeff Lemire is leaving The Terrifics in March to close out his time in work-for-hire, but it's not clear yet if the series will continue. I would advise DC to let the run stand on its own because I can't see anyone else equalling this level of quality. Read Full Review

    Yet another brilliant issue by Lemire and Bogdanovic who bring their A-Game as always. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Raphael Soohoo Jan 3, 2019

    Lemire and Bogdonavic deliver another great issue of THE TERRIFICS. The team has separated, but splitting up doesn't mean everyone gets what they wanted. Add the continued threat of Doc Dread and the Terrifics may have to reunite to save themselves... but can they? Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 2, 2019

    As a big fan of the Multiverse, I'm really excited about Lemire fully exploring the Earth Mister Terrific finds himself on. It should make next issue a lot of fun on a title that never fails to deliver the goods. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jan 2, 2019

    Yet even with the dour perspectives, Lemire and Bogdanovic capture just as many moments of levity in their artwork and dialog. The quips and visual gags are still very much on point and cement the series as a joy to read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 2, 2019

    The Terrifics #11 is a great jumping-on point for any new readers or anybody else that has happened to have fallen off this series. I personally really loved this issue. With the team broken up and gone their separate ways, we get to dig a little bit more into their personal lives and feelings, which Jeff Lemire excels at. The art is great as well, and I am looking forward to seeing more from this team. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 2, 2019

    The Terrifics #11 was a good start to this new story arc. There was a lot more depth given to these characters and the hurdles they have had to climb since the first issue. This time apart was the perfect opportunity taken to explore what these guys really had to look forward to on their own. Some have something worthwhile to turn back to, others not so much. It should be interesting to see who is willing to jump back into the fire when the call comes. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Christian Hoffer Jan 2, 2019

    The Terrifics has really spent a ton of time showing how much the superheroes dislike each other, but it's nice how this issue establishes how much of their own self-worth is wrapped up in being superheroes and with each other. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 7, 2019

    Even with occasionally wobbly art, this issue delivers on the drama and some pretty important reveals. Plus: The Dreadfuls have arrived! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 2, 2019

    The story grinds to a halt while every member reminisces on the things in their solitary lives that sucks. Also: Dr. Dread puts together a villainous team whose names will be forgotten almost as quickly as their introductions. Read Full Review
