DC New Age of Heroes delivers one of its biggest titles, THE TERRIFICS, with THE TERRIFICS #1 from JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, HAWKMAN FOUND, THANOS, SWEET TOOTH, and many more!) and the superstar art team behind Geoff John’s AQUAMAN – Joe Prado & Ivan Reis!

Spinning straight out of the events of METAL – meet the Terrifics – bound together by a freak accident caused by the DARK MULTIVERSE!
This is one of the DC NEW AGE OF HEROES titles we’ve been anticipating most, and we cannot wait to get our hands on it this week (and we know you feel the same way!)
Featuring superstar writer JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, DIVINITY, THANOS, MOON KNIGHT and so many more), and the incredible art team of Ivan Reis & Joe Prado (Geoff John’s AQUAMAN, Brightest Day) – this book has some of the best darn talent on it around, and the actual hook of the story is super awesome!
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?
That’s right, Third Eye Faithful – the one and only cult favorite, TOM STRONG, who you may remember from Alan Moore’s now-classic AMERICA’S BEST COMICS line will be entering the DC Universe in this series, and we’re pretty darn pumped.
For those of you who’ve never read Tom Strong – it’s one of Moore’s best takes on the superhero / pulp hero genre, as he takes the idea of a DOC SAVAGE-style character and runs with it in all sorts of awesome directions.
What’s the scoop on the NEW AGE OF HEROES? Well, Third Eye Faithful, there’s not many times we can truly say: you’re going to remember where you were when you got these, but with the NEW AGE OF HEROES books, we’re saying it right now – you’re gonna remember exactly what was going on the day you came into Third Eye and scooped ’em.
It’s no secret that DC Comics has really captured lightning in a bottle with their incredible output lately, whether it be the mainline events like METAL and DOOMSDAY CLOCK, or the self-contained ELSEWORLDS-style hits like BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT — they are truly where it’s at for great stories with great artwork right now.
And, we gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: we’ve seen what they have planned for 2018, and it’s huge. We’re talking BIG stuff, and that means DC has no signs of slowing down whatsoever.
Where does it all begin? The New Age of Heroes.
A line-up of series set firmly in the mainline DC Universe continuity, and featuring many of the DC’s most iconic characters, friend and foe, the NEW AGE OF HEROES focuses on doing something that’s not easy for established superhero comics: creating fresh and exciting new heroes that captivate the way the icons we know and love do.

MERA: QUEEN OF ATLANTIS #1 delivers the first issue to a killer new 6-part mini-series spotlighting the Queen of Atlantis!

One of the most consistently quality reads of the REBIRTH line-up is AQUAMAN, and a big part of that is due to the incredible writing chops of Dan Abnett.
So, when we saw that Abnett was going to be doing a 6-part mini-series with the very talented Lan Medina – we knew we had to shout it out!
As the brutal Atlantean Civil War rages, Mera must keep the peace between the surface world and Atlantis as its newly anointed queen in exile.
