Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I am very excited for this book. I am interested to see how they position Mr. Terrific in the new DCU. The art and preview pages look pretty cool, and I really dig this cover. So, I am hoping it’s going to be a surprise hit.

  2. I’m really excited for this too. Geez I hope its good. The premise is interesting, hopefully it works. I was also excited for Batwing and I didn’t end up enjoying that one very much. So hopefully this one will be entertaining.

  3. I am going to look this one over and most likely get it. I liked the character in the JSA, but I don’t know what to expect of him in a solo title.

  4. High hopes for this. Great character, hopefully it lives up to my expectations.

  5. I’m hoping for this to be good.

  6. This is DCs third most intriguing title.

  7. I hope this isn’t Mr. Terrible.
    I like how it says Roger Robinson and then it says Gianluca Gugliotta. His art looks a little cartoony for me, but, like all of the new DC books, I will give this a look at the store.

  8. I am picking this up only because of the cover and the title. I know nothing about this guy except the blurb up top. One of my two “new 52” books this week.

  9. This is the only DC book I’m pulling.

    I don’t like that the artist team doesn’t appear to be the same for the first 3 issues but perhaps the story warrants those changes.

  10. Smasher-first of all probably not.
    Second of all I think I see a pattern starting to form over at DC and I hope I am worng; thats all I am going to say because if I am wrong I will be way off base. There are characters with titles and that are in books again that have no bussiness being in them while there are at least 100 other characters in the DCU that deserve their own title first or deserve to be part of a team up before others. I liked Mr. Terrific truth be told however; I think something fishy is going on around here????

    Just Sayin’,


    • That’s my thinking as well with regard to the art changes, @Flash923

      As for the pattern… one title does not a pattern make. What other titles are you talking about?

  11. Nice cover.

  12. This is a very “meh” book for me. I don’t really have interest in it but it looks like it could be good. I’m definitely going to give it a couple issues but if it doesn’t catch me I’ll definitely drop it.

    The art looks pretty though.

  13. Eric Wallace failed me to keep me on Titans and he was writing one of my favorite characters in that book. Give him a character that I truly do not care about, and this is my first official one and completely done. And… I even enjoyed Hawk and Dove.

    There simply was no, WOW factor. Dialogue was terrible and art was average. Just not what I am looking for.

  14. Only picked it up because of the tease that Karen Starr (i.e. former Power Girl) was in it. Flipped through the book, haven’t read it yet, but doesn’t look like it’s going to be a keeper.

  15. Thought it was pretty good. Wondered how they thought Mr Terrific could float his own title, but the premise seems pretty good and there’s enough unexplained plots points to keep me in for at least the first arc.

  16. I think it’s safe to assume which New 52 book will be canceled first.

  17. Not the worst book of the reboot so far, but definitely my least favorite of the week, next to maybe Suicide Squad.

  18. I thought this was OK. Maybe a 3.5 overall? The art was inconsistent. I thought the dialogue was better here than in the Grifter book, but there were some contrived situations related to race, politics, etc. I’ll probably look over #2 in the store before buying.

    • Yeah i thought it was okay, the art was a little sketchy but i thought it worked, the thing that didn’t work for me was the race issue. We all know Mister Terrific is black, so why was it brought up twice in a really uncomfortable way.

      But i liked it enough to pick up #2.

    • @ian I 100% agree about the race thing. there is a saying among writers that you have to write characters who happen to be black instead of black characters. he did not do that.

  19. This is the first horrible book of the New 52 for me. I didn’t like Hawk and Dove but this is much worse. It was horribly constructed and features some of the most contrived and artificial dialogue I’ve ever seen particularly when throwing race into the conversation. The art was subpar at best with Michael looking different all through the book. This thing was an utter mess.

  20. This is a 3 see what happens next week and then this maybe gone as well.

    Just sayin’,


    • I was ok. Not the best but I like the idea of the character and the tease that Power Girl might show up is definatley a plus. The art was good to bad in spots. I agree with a commentor earlier some of the contrived race issues where really poor. And I felt nothing when his wife died. I was more confused than upset for the character. How does her GPS going haywire make her crash her car and die? Why would an EMS tech even mention or know that? Totally weird. I hope this gets better. Not the worst of the 52 I’ve read so far. I’m tenitive with this series. I’ll be back for issue 2 to see how it goes.

  21. I love the Mister Terrific character and was excited about this one. I really really wanted to like it, but I really really didn’t. It was a very muddled story all around. A character like Mr. T could do with a lot more “oomph” in the imagination department. Why does he have to walk on his t-spheres? Why don’t they just have the spheres do a tech-like assist and just help him hover?

    Too bad about this one. I really hope this book gets better, but until I hear improved word on it i’m off.
