    This issue of Cyborg was a slow issue, as it just takes time to address the community that Cyborg is surrounded around and sets up a possible addition to the Cyborg family. I am really enjoying this first arc and am really wanting to see the endgame of the robot version of Cyborg’s dad. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 16, 2016

    Cyborg on the street should be a weekly occurance as he allows readers to see the difficulties of being black in America. Cyborg #5 does that quite well. A new character is introduced well enough, though the actions to transform her delivered too quickly to allow it to resonate. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Nov 21, 2016

    A key reason I left Cyborg the first time was because of the numerous art changes and there's plenty of them again not only in this series, but in this issue! With five issues of Cyborg, we've had five different artists on the book. Paul Pelletier kicked off the series with the first two issues, then with each subsequent issue it has been a different artist with this fifth issue having two artists, Allan Jefferson and Derec Donovan. While Jefferson's art works for this book and the first half, Donovan's art in the second half really misses the tone with its cartoony and blocky style. It ends the book on a low note for me as the art does not match the dark and climactic ending. I'm not sure if Cyborg will stay on my reading list. I hope it does, but with all the changes in art and character I'm not very confident. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 16, 2016

    Cyborg this issue has some decent ideas going for it, but ultimately I found myself bored when I wasn't yelling at our characters for being idiots.  The art wasn't something that I really enjoyed and all in all, this issue just felt lacking all over even though it had a decent concept behind it.

    This book has a lot of untapped potential; instead it's bogged down in the traditional approach of a hero in the hood. It's just too bad. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Review (8.5/10) "Great!" Cyborg #5 "The Imitation of Life Part 5: Regeneration," Writer: John Semper, Jr, Penciller: Allan Jefferson/Derec Donovan, Plot: A secret agent that was operating in Baghdad was seriously injured by a terrorist incurred car explosion. Now it is up to Cyborg to use the mother box technology to revive her to access the crucial intelligence she gathered for the US government. Also, the doppelganger Silas is trying to use this opportunity to gather information regarding Cyborg and his technology. Another stellar issue from Semper and company, but this issue's biggest distraction was the sudden art change half way into the issue. The art styles are not bad, but it sort of took me out of the book since they were drastically different. I would have preferred if one artist did the whole book all the way through. There were alot of great scenes in this book. Cyborg walking around a high risk neighborhood with the blind jazz musician, the real Silas talking to a strange caretaker cyborg in the doppelganger's secret hideout, and the doppelganger convincing Cyborg to use his powers to revive the burnt secret agent victim to secretly obtain information regarding the mother box and Cyborg. Still it was an enjoyable book and remains one of my top pulls from the Rebirth books.

    This book has been really strong so far, especially when it takes the time to dig in to the character's humanity and what it means to be human, but this issue's art took a nose dive. The story is still strong and interesting.
