The Terrifics have entered cyberspace for a battle unlike any they have faced before. It's a battle against...God? Well, the science is still out on that, but as our heroes face off against all manner of monstrous plagues, things do seem to be reaching biblical proportions. Could the key to all this be the mysterious Pixel?

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 22, 2019

    All in all, The Terrifics #16 continues to reinvigorate the series. Yang and Segovia have thrown these lovable misfits in to a less cosmic, more personal adventure and only two issues in, they have built considerable momentum and this one feels special. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 22, 2019

    Yang and Segovia are doing a strong job of maintaining the high quality of their predecessors and keeping that creative anything is possible tone of this book. This is for fans that dont want to get bogged down with overwhelming continuity and just want to enjoy a fun read. It doesnt get much better than The Terrifics. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ritesh Babu May 24, 2019

    Terrifics remains a fun romp with charming character moments, big ideas, fun pastiches and a man that can transform into a truck. A winner, really. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 22, 2019

    Gene Luen Yang continues to settle into Jeff Lemire's old digs comfortably, keeping the main tone of the series intact while adding his own unique flair and talent for dialogue into this oddball superhero team. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 22, 2019

    Credit where it is due, The Terrifics reminds us with every passing issue why this is one of the last books to have survived from DC's initiative, The New Age of Heroes. Most of the other books did not survive because they couldn't take advantage of the room to give us something new, the time it should take to sell us on the characters/story, or the reasons to continue coming back for more. The Terrifics knocks it out of the park in every category. Hopefully this series can continue to do so! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil May 24, 2019

    VerdictThe Terrifics has been one of the best titles in DC's lineup, and the main success of the New Age of Heroes line. The question remains as to whether Gene Luen Yang can maintain the high level of quality set by Lemire. So far, it appears that he has the potential to do so and has made a decent start.

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 25, 2019

    The book is still entertaining, and I am not about to give up on it so soon. This team has to be given time to form the Terrifics into something special again. I have no idea how they will do so. Im not certain they can. But I will stick around to find out. Read Full Review

    This issue of The Terrifics is truly zany from start to finish in all of the best ways. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez May 23, 2019

    The complete 180-degree turn for this series will be detrimental to its survival unless something changes, fast. With the lack of inspired scripts to work from Segovia is left to twiddle his thumbs while Yang looks for a way to make his issues longer without anything actually happening. As August solicits make their rounds, the series will seemingly live for the time being. It would be a shame for such a unique and exciting team to fall into obscurity. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 22, 2019

    While there is fun to be had here, this is hardly an essential read.  I still have faith that Yang will get things going and this issue looks great, but as of now, I still can't give it much of a recommendation except to people already reading it. Read Full Review
