Somewhere in a twisted, distant corner of the Multiverse, up is down, back is front, a smile is a frown-and Bizarro is king!

    Whenever a new issue of The Terrifics comes out, it's always the first book I have to read. Jeff Lemire created something special with this title and the quality hasn't slackened since Gene Luen Yang has taken over the reins. As Bizarro might say: The Terrifics am worst DC title! Me hate it! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 28, 2019

    This type of unexpected situation is the bread and butter of The Terrifics, and The Terrifics #19 embraces the sheer oddness of Lex Luthor's machinations to the fullest. Yang and Raynor clearly had so much fun developing this comic and you can feel that joy permeate throughout the page. Read Full Review

    This was an inspired tie-in to Year of the Villain and showing how strongly the creative teams have bought in to this new crossover. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 28, 2019

    Our biggest takeaway from this issue of The Terrifics? Doom doesn't just mean spreading this to the far corners of the universe. That would be too simple. Spreading doom means hitting every conceivable place of importance which order exists. For Bizarro, his true nature is chaos whether intention or not, so Lex really let it rip on this one. All of this was a great build-up towards how this fits into the lives of The Terrifics, and making you question how they might put a cap on this one. Read Full Review

    The next issue is going to be another fun one as the Terrifics are all going to face off with their mirror images. I'm looking forward to it. Or backward to it? Stupid Bizarro speak! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 2, 2019

    It's hard to review any Bizarro story without endlessly writing in backwards-talk, but I imagine it's even harder to WRITE one that works. This one does. Read Full Review

    Following the issue's large amount of opposite speak can get a little overwhelming in parts, but this still manages to be a weird and fun read, setting up an interesting conflict in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 28, 2019

    Trying to parse backwards speak for a whole issue is irksome and overall this plot just doesn't let Yang shine with the dialogue like he usually does. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 28, 2019

    A fairly uninspired and inconsistent Bizarrostory concludes in an uninspired and inconsistent way. Which is, incidentally, aconsistent aspect of this story, Read Full Review
