That's interesting.


The Terrifics 001
> Bound together by fate, united by the spirit of exploration and hope for tomorrow, the Terrifics bound from the Dark Multiverse of Meta! When Mr. Terrific, Metamorpho, Plastic Man and Phantom Girl find themselves literally bound together by a tragic accident, our team of unlikely allies must rely on one another to make their way back home. But a startling revelation on their return trip brings them face to face with a new mystery: where in the universe is Tom Strong?

Wow. DC ruined the chance of a real surprise ending with all the solicits, and variants, and heads ups that Tom Strong is in this... WOW. TOM STRONG IS IN THIS! On the one hand, we finally seemed to have been purged of all the alt-comicbook company characters of Wildstorm from sharing DC prime reality after Rebirth. On the other hand, this does make for a surprising must read next issue grabber.

> This issue moves quickly and covers a lot of ground fast, all while keeping the pacing natural. The Terrifics has the perfect balance of using continuity a tool rather than a crutch making it a great book for new and old readers alike.
Yup.

> I've got a great feeling about this one and that's even before the final page with a very surprising appearance. With a lot of changes going on right now in DC, The Terrifics looks like it has a legit shot at being one of DC's best titles for 2018.
Hopefully, the Tom Strong INTRO doesn't turn out to be the dud that Promethea had.

> Metamorpho is a catalyst, Mr. Terrific is a leader, Plastic Man is a liability and tool, and Phantom Girl…just kind of shows up. But that's fine. The point of a comic is to give you a different world to explore for the brief few moments that you span its pages. Jeff Lemire knows this. Everyone of his stories includes acts of heroism, strangely unique stories, and plenty of humor. Because he knows that readers don't want to worry while reading a comic. They want to explore the Universe with their favorite characters. That's allThe Terrifics #1is interested in. A good time. The creative team clearly had a good time creating it, and readers will have a great time reading it
It was also a plus, by incorporating the classic Stagg Family characters and tying it into the Metal Event making it not a forgettable throwaway canon.

> In short, everything about The Terrifics #1 is, well, terrific.
Darn! He got to the obvious hypeworthy pun first.

I loved it. I thought it was a lot of fun and has a lot of potential. I agree that some of the surprises were lost in the solicits but I still really, really, enjoyed it,
