The end of the God Game is upon us-and technology has turned the Terrifics' lives upside down! At long last, the secret origin of the mysterious technological being known as the Keeper is revealed, and this story is actually a tale as old as time. If the Terrifics are to shut the Keeper down and stop his tech infection from spreading worldwide, our heroes will need to do something they never thought they could: stop evolution itself. The Bizarro Terrifics were almost the most dangerous things in the universe. When Lex Luthor gives them a time machine, they become the most dangerous things in the universe. This will get weird.

    VerdictNow that we've reached the conclusion of Yang's first story arc, I feel I can safely say that he is capable of filling Lemire's shoes as writer of the Terrifics. The Terrifics has been one of my favourite titles, and it looks to remain so despite with Yang as writer. Read Full Review

    The Terrifics #18 ends what is one of the strongest story lines of the series since its inception. “The God Game” offered a much-needed spin on the characters, and I can't just help but be excited to see how the “Year of the Villain” will challenge this band of misfits next issue.

    With this week's issue of The Terrifics, another story comes to a close. Maybe not in the way this team would have agreed to, but this was a race against time to stop the Noosphere before it became too strong to stop. There was action, there was heart, and there was a fair amount of set-up for what the next arc has in store for them. Read Full Review

    It can often be hard to balance a cosmic story with a personal one, but Yang has been doing a good job of giving every character in the expanded Terrifics something to do. Read Full Review

    To be honest, I just dont see this book living up to its first year. But I am also not dropping it from my reading list. Read Full Review

    The Year of the Villain tie-in brings in a curious opponent for the team. The Terrifics really only have one adversary so while this villain is a surprise it is nice to see another potential threat emerge. Read Full Review

    The Terrifics are in new territory after this issue"especially if those last few pages are any indication"and here's hoping it'll continue to work in the series' favor. Read Full Review

    Definitely the fusion of religious mythology with the normally scientific technologically driven, Terrifics was interesting. But the problem is that the beginning panels were kinda incoherent for anyone who has just picked up the title, and I'm not sure picking up The Terrifics #17 will be helpful either. The one good subplot was Plastic -man and his seven sins running around and the team trying to round them up and put Plastic-man back together again. Read Full Review
