    At the end of the day I believe Cyborg #11 is a solid issue, but a story that could have been told any time other than now. Timing is how you do a story like this justice. Victor is bound to run into trouble just from the things he doesn't remember till now, though there are more vital things to take care of where this simply feels like a distraction. Read Full Review

    This was quite a fun yet sad issue. I enjoyed the 8-bit dimension and even H8-Bit even thoughhe was a little cheesy. But he had a classic origin and a damn sad death, both his human selfand his digital copy. The art was really well done. Loved the way all the 8-bit creatures looked.They were even kind of fuzzy like they would be on a TV screen. Loved it. Read Full Review

    Goddamn does this issue do its damnedest to keep us from the actual story by giving us twenty pages of nonsense that doesn't mean anything at the end and is ludicrous even in concept.  There is nothing going on in this series anymore and the only saving grace is the art team and while it doesn't deserve the score I'm giving it in the eyes of most people reading this review, the Get Fresh Crew will know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Although Will Conrad delivers great detail in his pencils and overall work, its the story that Semper Jr. provides that makes it fall flat. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, this book makes me long for another Bronze Age go-to: the old "Plot by/Dialogue by" writing split. It'd make a world of difference. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Apr 10, 2017

    So you've got a stupid villain who whines, fighting a boring hero who whines, in a badly-written issue which has nothing to do with the actual current story arc. I pity the artists. Cyborg #11 isn't just the worst issue of the series so far, it's one of the worst issues of any comic book ever. Read Full Review

    It's the execution that really drags the book down. John Semper bombards readers with an onslaught of expository narrative captions, all of which seek to chronicle exactly how Vic is thinking and feeling at any given moment. Read Full Review

    In conclusion, even though I was down on this issue, hopefully Cyborg would be able to wrap up this arc really well, as it has had really strong opening issues but seems like the series is dragging itself out. With the inclusion of Beast Boy coming soon I am excited to see how Semper Jr. will progress with this book and hope that it will continue to re-capture the greatness of this character.

    When you hike up the price by a dollar even if it includes a digital code (to an issue I don't even think I want to read again) you better make sure the story is a solid read, otherwise that price increase starts to get noticed a lot more and could induce pull-list drops... This throwaway story literally involves a digitized childhood friend of Vic's that tries to kill him in a video game world from their childhood. I kid you not...

    One of my personal favorite issues. It's a cross between Armory wars and Nate Simpson's Non-Player. In this issue the title seems to be tweaked thematically. the question is no longer if Cyborg's a threat to humanity or someone that could help save it but who or what is the outside force that's controlling his alien cybernetic technology and what are their intentions? Is he being guided by a force of good or a force of evil? In this issue Cyborg is guided into another dimension. And when he arrives there he realizes that this dimension is inhabited by the same virtual video game world that him and his best friend of the past created while in summer camp. His best friend now goes by the name of H8-Bit and of course he trades blows with Cyborg. I'm impressed by how Will Conrad and Semper jr. depicts H8-Bit visor's as it can blink in and out on his face as he powers up and I thought that his pixelating powers were also unique. My favorite scene of the comic is when the two went back to Detroit very briefly. In this scene Will Conrad really shined. The ending was totally unexpected and it had me wandering if Cyborg's alien cybernetics actually gave his best friends his powers and also did it created the dimension in which the virtual world was housed? At according to this issue Cyborg's alien technology grants Vic's all of his conscious and unconscious desires.
