    The Terrifics #29 is the penultimate issue of this title. It's a shame that it didn't find the wider audience it deserves, but perhaps when the comic industry stabilizes again, Yang, Lemire, or some other talented writer will be given the opportunity to revive the title. In the meantime, I'm sure Yang has a satisfying blowout issue planned for next month. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be an absolute joy to read, and this march toward the end (for now) is incredibly bittersweet, but gratifying. Read Full Review

    This issue is definitely set up with a lot of potential for twists and turns down the road and it'll be fun seeing them develop. Read Full Review

    This is a fun old-school comic with great dialogue (except for one gratuitous boomer joke) and as the comic ends next issue, it's been one of the DCU's most pleasant surprises. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 5, 2020

    For anyone like myself who was still on the fence about the direction this book has been taking, The Terrifics #29 did just what was needed to create more investment in what's to come. This book started with a Stagg problem, so it only makes sense that we would come back around to the same trouble this family brings to the team. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 4, 2020

    The Terrifics is coming to a close next month, and Gene Luen Yang is going to send it off with a bang!  This book may not be for everyone, but I have enjoyed it, especially since Yang took over.  At this point, I'd suggest grabbing the trade or wait to read it in the DC Universe App, but I do think you should at least check it out.
