Welcome to Millennium City in part one of "Tom Strong and the Terrifics"! To cure themselves of the Dark Energy bond that's gripped them, the Terrifics use the Dark Multiverse antenna to track down the one man who can help them-Tom Strong. In Millennium City, the Terrifics follow Strong's signal, only to find his lab destroyed and his loyal A.I. aide Pneuman shattered. And the weirdness doesn't end when a mystical tree transports the team across the universe.

    Plastic Man has always been one of my favourite characters, and Jeff Lemire is quickly becoming one of my favourite writers, so it's no surprise that I love this book. It may seem strange for DC to mix together a group of disparate characters into a group that somewhat resembles a Marvel group, but Lemire brings it all together in one of the best titles in DC's lineup.

    This issue might as well be called Tom Strong since it feels like one. A fantastic issue of writing and art by Lemire and Eaglesham! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 22, 2018

    With Eaglesham on board the book feels like the final piece is in place for the title to reach new heights. And with Lemire showing no signs of slowing down on the creativity, The Terrifics continues to live up to its name as one of DC's most entertaining monthly reads. Read Full Review

    Combining a team of dynamic characters with an inventive tribute to the weirdness of the DCU, this book has yet to miss a beat. Read Full Review

    But that is really the only complaint I have of the issue, and the Tom Strong part was so well done that I am in a forgiving mood. Read Full Review

    The Terrifics #7 overall gets us on the right track. We are right where we want to be for the answers to questions that have gotten us from the first issue to this point. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 22, 2018

    There are some interesting moments in this story and I enjoy the throwback feel of the Tom Strong storyline. I really hope that there is a satisfying way to bring these two stories together and that Dread is someone of significance that can flesh out the arc. Read Full Review

    This is one of The Terrifics' best issues to date and it'll be interesting to see how Tom Strong is integrated into the wider DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Aug 22, 2018

    The New Age of Heroes titles fill a very important niche. They are prompts to the histories of comics, while embellishing some newer characters in engaging storylines. Eaglesham and Lemire know how to create just the right amount of tension and suspense. I'm hoping the next installment capitalizes on the set-up here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Joe Bainbridge Sep 8, 2018

    As Lemire advances his story and finally takes the Terrifics to a place that has a bit more plot and a little less fun, he creates an interesting story that keeps the reader engaged with help from Dale Eaglesham. As the story continues I want to see what is in store for Tom Strong and what he means to Dr. Dread. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 25, 2018

    Terrifics #7 more-or-less continues the slump of last issue, and I am a little disappointed. While this issue is decidedly better and at least worth a soft recommendation, its hard to take Doc Dread seriously, and just co-opting Fantastic Four stories isnt the way to go. That said, I can recommend this issue, and you should feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 22, 2018

    Go pay three dollars for this issue based on the artwork and layouts alone. Now that you've gotten more than your money's worth, you may notice that the story sort of wanders around until the big cliffhanger at the end. Yeah, it's not the most cohesive story in comics today, but that Dale Eaglesham artwork! Whew! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 28, 2018

    I'm really kind of at a loss with this book at this point. It's still cheap enough that I don't mind reading a bit more in hopes that everything comes together but it simply feels like it's continuing to miss out on its potential entirely and instead just wants to be a whole lot of bursting through things without any real weight or meaning behind it.
