    Yang sets up a very interesting development with the arrival of a new team that could really complicate matters with The Terrifics. It feels like the arrow is definitely trending up for a book thats had a few rough patches but seems to be all the better from emerging on the other side of it. Keep an eye out for this arc and title in general. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 11, 2020

    A bold new direction for The Terrifics was right! This book right here is a nonstop adventure, and it goes a long way that this is a creative team which consistently pushes the envelope as to where these new adventures can take us, how the team will grow along the way. The Terrifics #26 started us off on the right note with the team doing the kind of work they should have always been doing and kicked off a new plot which takes us where we never thought we would go.

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Mar 11, 2020

    By the end of the issue, it's clear that Yang's narrative is going to go in some very interesting places. Given the rotating cast of characters that the Terrifics constantly interact with, it's nice getting a chance to refocus on the core group for an issue as a palette cleanser. But still, plenty of moments indicate that Stagg's up to something terrible and I'm excited to see where the adventure will take the team. Read Full Review

    Sergio Davila delivers some fantastic visuals throughout this issue and the action is some of the best I've seen with these characters particularly. Davila does a great job of building on the character moments throughout and bringing them to life as the story builds to its finale. Read Full Review

    While this issue doesn't pack the punch of last month's "Choose Your Own Adventure" anniversary issue, it still is a pretty solid installment of The Terrifics. Read Full Review
