    The Terrifics is consistently the most fun of the titles that I read every month. At this point, I am fully convinced that Gene Luen Yang gets The Terrifics, and was the ideal choice to take over the title. Kudos to Yang and to the art team as well. Read Full Review

    The Terrifics #20 succeeds in all the right ways as a follow up to its immediate predecessor, its preceding arc, and as a standalone introduction to a veritably trippy arc. It's a masterful example of visual story-telling and a truly comic book type comic that embraces the past to show a promising future. Read Full Review

    The Terrifics is back on track with a fun issue. Hopefully the creative team can keep it on track as it's been one of DC's more enjoyable team books over the last couple of years. Read Full Review

    The invasion of the backwards was one hell of a trip this week. The Terrifics #20 proved once more that we have fun when this creative team clearly looks like they have fun breathing life into this madness. This is definitely one of those stories where we just have to brace for the unexpected, because right now it is anything goes with Bizarro in the driver's seat. Read Full Review

    Even when The Terrifics isn't working 100% perfectly, it's still doing something visually and narratively unique, and that's definitely worth celebrating. Read Full Review

    Overall it's a fun issue with some clever visual gimmicks, but the major threat this arc doesn't really click with me " and the return of Boyzarro at the end of the issue makes it look like we're going to get more of the abusive Bizarro that ruined that arc, which is my least favorite take on the usually good-natured character.
