    Dare I say it, this is the best Cyborg's been since the first two issues. This is some ambitious water David Walker is swimming in, leaving a lot of potential for future threats and new foils specifically for our hero. Read Full Review

    Cyborg #9 captures Victor in the light we wish most other stories would. A hero who has friends in high places to help him when his back is against the wall. A Justice League member who is treated like an equal. A person who deserves the chance to decide how his own body is used knowing that line between man and machine is now more blurred than ever.

    Cyborg #9 is all about the passing of proposed regulations and discussion of cybernetic theory, yet somehow, it's an issue that never feels bland. Read Full Review

    While this issue doesn't do much to progress our story further than where we left off last month, it does fill us in about what Cyborg's been doing in preparation for when the Cyborg Regulations Act is passed.  It's a fun issue that features the Justice League and I found myself really enjoying the art....... It's just a really fast read with the lack of progression. Read Full Review

    There's a smart idea at the heart of Cyborg #9, which asks the question of whether or not you can legislate someone who's just as much machine as he is a man " but ultimately, the execution of this Shazam!-errific issue winds up getting hobbled by too much exposition and not enough twist.

    Let me just start off by saying, I wrote a review last issue about how one of my favorite aspects about that book was how genuine and fun the relationship between Shazaam and Cyborg was. Then this issue comes along, and then things with them two go 0-100 real quick. I won't spoil anything but it all makes since at the end of the issue. I really enjoyed the filler/middle part of the story because it brought in the Justice League and showed the relationship Vic had with all the other members. I will say however I thought the conversation he had with Clark and Diana was a little weird and out of character, but that's my only gripe with this issue. We get more understanding of what the motives are for the baddies and how the Cybernetic Regulation act intertwined with them. By the end of the book it leads you to wonder what Cyborg has planned, and whether or not it will cost him his life. The Art continues to be exceptional and we are blessed with a gorgeous splash page. Overall, if you haven't been reading this story, you need to quit playing and go to your local shop and pick it up....

    This issue caught my eye, mostly from the cover- showing Shazam standing over a rather fully incapacitated Cyborg. This intrigued me, but also confused me. Initially I was enjoying this book less than I'd expected, but once I finished, everything was revealed, and I ALSO hope Victor knows what he is doing. The next issue seems like it could be massively bad, pretty much for EVERYONE. I had a few moments that stuck out to me visually, which took away from how gorgeous most of this art was- wonder woman's face during cyborg's reveal of his organic form looked really derp-y and weird, and one panel of Shazam looked like he was built like Steven Segal, but now, instead of the muscly Adonis he usually resembles. Beyond those few moments, this was a really, really solid story, and it sets up the next issue very well. This has been a really intriguing book, and I am excited to see where it goes from here.

    The dialogue for Diana and Ckark was so out of character! Then Vic has to tell us every second that he has an internal computer. Lame.
