Get away from Bgtzl! That's a bad Bizarro! Very, very bad! You're not supposed to alter that entire planet's position in space-time! Wait...you have to talk to him backward, right? That's a very good thing you're...um...not doing, Bizarro!

    A really good issue that shows the ability of the storytellers to tell a time loop plot. Read Full Review

    While writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Sergio Davila's actual narrative in The Terrifics #23 is a bit of a mess, Yang's got a cool storytelling mechanic in this issue that keeps things from completely drowning under all the Bizarro weirdness. Read Full Review
