    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 30, 2018

    We haven't seen much of this series yet, but so far it's a very enjoyable read. DC's Rebirth had the aim of making their comics fun to read, and the New Age Of Heroes is continuing to do so in the pages of The Terrifics. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Mar 29, 2018

    Maintaining the unofficial title of best series from DC'S New Age of Superheroes, The Terrifics yet again proves it's worth to readers with another fast paced issue. Never sticking to just one note, whether it's the good cop bad cop relationship between Plastic Man and Metamorpho, to the stoic Mr Terrific, to the mysteries behind Phantom Girl and the Dark Multiverse, this series brings a new symphony of diverse tones for readers to fall in love with each month.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 28, 2018

    I'm really enjoying this book and all the various possibilities where Lemire will take this book through the course of 2018. There's no reason this won't be one of the top books by this time in 2019. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 28, 2018

    This is the kind of story we don't see all that much of anymore, and it's also the only one of these new titles that has a very distinct identity. I can't wait to read more. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Daniel Mills Mar 28, 2018

    Mr. Terrific isn't always the most likable hero. He thinks he's smarter than everyone else, and he's probably right. But throw a couple of dopes and a weird girl at him, and he's suddenly a more intriguing character. The meaning ofThe Terrifics #2and the previous issuestill a mystery. But Ivan Reis and Jeff Lemire's promise of adventure is more than worth price of the next issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 28, 2018

    The Terrifics #2 cements this team as one of the most unconventional of the DC Universe. I'm glad to be able to say this because normally unconventional would be the word I would use to describe books like Justice League Dark or Suicide Squad. This shows initiative and risk taking to add something to shelves that we don't get enough of. Not everything needs to be springing into action to save a city or the world. It can journeying into mystery and places you wouldn't dare go under normal circumstances. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Mar 28, 2018

    The Terrifics #2 is another solid issue in a relatively new series that, while continuing to set the stage for what's to come, offers readers good reason to keep reading and to be excited for the epic adventure(s) that awaits our group. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax Mar 28, 2018

    There are reasons why this team is together but readers won't know why just yet; they will simply learn that this is a team that is bound together. A clue to this mystery might be connected to a guest "appearance" of Tom Strong. Fans of this Alan Moore creation can only hope that the kind of wonder with which Tom Strong's origins were told will continue to be one of the key influences on this really good book. 4/5!

    Comic Bastards - Garrett Hanneken Mar 28, 2018

    The issue felt a bit short as the characters make their way out of the dark multiverse and then next thing I know it is over. Luckily, the issue ended on an interesting note as we discover that the characters are bonded to one another due to their time spent trying to take the probe off of Tom Strong's distress signal.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Mar 29, 2018

    I like Reiss work here. It is some of his best and so not Jack Kirby-ish! His version of Metamorpho draws from Ramona Fradon but with a Michael Jackson nose job. Its delightful. Phantom Girl still lacks much a personality or anything specific to do but her visuals recall some of Kirbys Inhumans characters. Plastic Man and Mr. Terrific are of course great to look at. I do find the giant T-Sphere a bit boring to look at. It is supposed to be an analogue of the Fantastic Fours car but it lacks details. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Apr 2, 2018

    The Moore connection may affect the way you read this series, depending on how much you take stock into such things. In time The Terrifics may move beyond Moore. Maybe not. But the ride is yours, should you choose to take it. And, if nothing else, it promises to be a great one. Read Full Review

    Ivan Reis and Jeff Lemire continue kicking goals with The Terrifics and here's hoping that these ‘New Age of Heroes' will remain around for a long time and I for one cannot wait until they meet Tom Strong. All in all, a fun story, great dialogue and perfect art! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 28, 2018

    The second issue takes a little time to familiarize ourselves with these characters: very little time. They fall into familiar narrative types and behave perfunctorily within the structure of comic books. It didn't feel very terrific. Read Full Review
