    The whole series is one of the most pure fun comics DC is putting out, combining great art and fast-paced storytelling with a Silver Age aesthetic where anything can happen. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Oct 24, 2018

    Lus and Lemire know how to have fun with this particular cast. It's definitely a particular niche when it comes to science driven heroes, but it's one that I continue to have a good time with. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 24, 2018

    The Terrifics #9 was a fun chapter they put all the pieces into place for the climax to this arc. As I said above, everything is coming full circle for this main storyline. Who is behind the mask of Doc Dread was no big shocker, but it was the personal stakes set through the reveal that grabs your attention most. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Oct 25, 2018

    What other comic can offer Plastic Man's antics, a guest appearance of Swamp Thing, and a nod to classic Warner Bros. cartoons, and still tell a pretty good story? Plas and Metamorpho are what originally drew me to this book, but I am quickly growing attached to the rest of the cast. The Terrifics is one of the most fun comics currently being put out.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 24, 2018

    The art in the issue is well done. Nothing really stood out in the action, but the depiction of Swamp Thing was well done and the final page contained a solid reveal. Read Full Review

    For a comic with so much promise, The Terrifics seems like "just" another superhero book in this issue, and that's disappointing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 24, 2018

    The Terrifics' train rolls on to parts unknown, and I think I'm ready to get off. Everything looks great, but there's no story to hold on to. For three bucks, it's not a bad artist's showcase, but I can't help but feel a more substantive title could be in this slot. Read Full Review
