Review: The Terrifics #1

Bound together by fate, united by the spirit of exploration and hope for tomorrow, the Terrifics are bound from the Dark Multiverse of Metal! 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?

Spinning out of the Dark Nights: Metal event, The Terrifics kicks off with Mr. Terrific coming upon the abuse of his technology which has created a rift with the Dark Multiverse. Since we don’t know how things end in the event, how we got to this point is a little unclear. Despite that, the comic is a fun start though and generally you don’t need to know about the event, it’s just helpful. That’s all on the shoulders of Jeff Lemire and Ivan Reis who are both credited with the story. Reis also provides the art with Joe Prado on inks, Marcelo Maiolo‘s color, and lettering by Tom Napolitano.

The first issue is our heroes thrown into the unknown of the Dark Multiverse with the set-up of conflict in personalities. And that’s a lot of the draw of the comic. Mr. Terrific, Metamorpho, and Plastic Man are three personalities that couldn’t be further apart and the conflict there is the entertainment.

What’s also interesting is Lemire and Reis’ exploration of the downright abuse of Plastic Man. There’s some things laid out here that shows a character who’s dealing with recent abuse and to the storyteller credits you see him dealing with that a bit through humor. It’s subtle and smart. Through their journey too the characters pick up a fourth team member and then that discovery of Tom Strong… sort of. It’s a message from him really. Your enjoyment may hinge on how you respond to the use of the character.

The art is epic with a great sci-fi feel about it all and there’s some imagery that’s jaw dropping cool. There’s also an ominous feel about it all and that’s helped by the color and ink which help change the mood of the scenes as the comic progresses. The lettering too helps convey the emotion and how out of hand some of the situations are.

The comic has some familiar things to it. There’s absolutely some Fantastic Four elements. There’s some Lost in Space. It’s fun. While the first issue doesn’t blow me away it is more than enough to provide enjoyment and I can’t wait to see where the next issues takes us.
