Bizarro and the Terribles have invaded Earth-0 with a mission: turn back the clock. Armed with a time machine given to him by Lex Luthor, the one and only Man of YesterdayTM is determined to reverse progress in the Multiverse to a simpler time, a stupider time you might say. A bizarre time. So who's going to stop this regression transgression? The Terrifics, that's who!

    The Terrifics has outlasted all of the other titles from DC's New Age of Heroes line, and I think it's due, in no small part, to the lighter tone of the series. That plus, the likeability of the characters, the superb writing, and gorgeous art make The Terrifics one of my favourite comics of all-time. Read Full Review

    Terrifics thrills and excites as it packs in Boyzarros, Megazords, 70's outfits and careful cultural critiques that make for an engaging superhero title. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Oct 23, 2019

    This arc continues to be completely different than my original thoughts about how the Year of the Villain was going to impact the Terrifics, but honestly this is so much more inventive and incredible than anything my mind could come up with. Yang's writing perfectly juxtaposes themes of scientific progress and found family with deft hands, and Segovia's artwork melds these concepts together wonderfully. I won't lie: this is very much a niche book, but wow, it fills it so perfectly. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 23, 2019

    While we ultimately knew that doom was going to prevail over The Terrifics before this issue released, this did not change the thrill of everything which led to that point. This is probably the first time I have ever read a story where time regressed, but as a first this has been fun for every opportunity this creative team took to embrace the pre-2000's culture and entertainment. They even get bonus points for referring to favorite games such as Titanfall. Read Full Review

    This issue"which continues the team's decade-hopping fight against Bizarro"is even more eccentric and truly weird than you would expect. Read Full Review
