Comic Review: The Terrifics #6

The Background- DC is lucky enough to squeeze out one more issue of The Terrifics before Marvel brings home their own super-powered foursome. It was a blatant move when DC decided to make their own version of the Fantastic Four, and they weren’t trying to hide it. Even the competition knew that the world was…

Comic Review: Terrifics #5

The Background- I have been eating the Terrifics series up. DC’s very own resident version of the Fantastic Four offers all the fun and adventure of its inspiring series, plus Plastic Man – who is one of the most humorous characters in all of comic books. There is a lot of good things on the…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #4

Deconstructed: Plastic Man Vol.4 #1

Once again Plastic Man is making his return to mainstream DC comics. Despite having his own television series, and being a reoccurring member of the Justice League, ol’ Patrick ‘Eel’ O’Brian’s superhero career has fluctuated from nobody to notoriety countless times. Now, with comic guru, Jeff Lemire at the helm, Plastic Man is about to…
