With DC Comics April solicits leaked online, it means I finally get an answer to my burning question: What of The Terrifics, once the only constant – writer Jeff Lemire – leaves the series? Well, it would seem that DC Comics are finally aiming for an artist able to commit to the series. It’s been my biggest bugbear, and a worry that an inconsistent approach to the art – on a book claiming to emphasis the artist when its as first launched – would see the comic cancelled.
Thankfully, unlike Damage (a book I learnt was cancelled come April, thanks to that online leak), that’s not the case. Enter new scribe Gene Leun Yang (who worked on The Terrifics annual, as a warm-up) and new artist Stephen Segovia. Congratulations, guys. Here’s to keeping this book above water and maintaining a pulse.
