    I refuse to bad mouth this book because I feel like a kid on Christmas. I love the Art, Writing and the Style. I have clearly added another book to my pull list. Read Full Review

    Midnight Logic - Atlee Greene May 8, 2013

    Romance, violence, mystery, and action are all impeccably woven together in superb fashion. Even though this is just a preview of the full length graphic novel scheduled for a summer 2013 release, this is one book you don't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran May 3, 2013

    Writers FJ DeSanto and Bradley Cramp are rather successful in distilling a character and series into a short introduction that not only entertains, but ensures I reserve the pending graphic novel. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker May 2, 2013

    The worst part is, we have to wait until July to get the full graphic novel. This is that fun and entertaining, I want to read it now! I might not know much about Cyborg 009, but this has me wanting to check out the classics that I've missed. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Apr 30, 2013

    So it's only a teaser and there's about 80 pages of story you have to wait until about July for. So what? It's a BUCK, people...if that isn't enough to get you to try something new, I don't know what is. You're already gonna be at the comic shop on Wednesday, so throw this one on your stack. It's not every day you get introduced to an iconic concept with a publication history nearly as long as Spider-Man or the X-Men! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 3, 2013

    I think this was a great license for Archaia and it’s sure to catch fans of the series attention, while bringing in new fans like myself. Action, Robots, Fighting and a mystery; all rolled up into one kick ass looking package. For only a dollar you can’t go wrong with this issue, that’s for damn sure. Read Full Review

    Check your pockets. Chances are you might be able to find a dollar there. Or maybe you have a dollar you can spare or borrow. If you do, you definitely should check out this preview of the upcoming graphic novel by FJ DeSanto, Bradley Cramp and Marcus To. To's art with Ian Herring's colors will blow you away. The preview succeeds in giving you enough of a tease to make you demand more. You can feel the combination of the original manga and the Western style of comics. Comic readers can sometimes get a little cynical with today's comics. This is a great taste of a comic to alleviate any concerns with today's market. It's a great introduction to the characters and you'll absolutely want this book on your radar. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Sam Wildman Sep 24, 2013

    While I could imagine this re-imagining upsetting the manga purists out there, I think pretty much everyone else would be quite happy with this book. It's a very solid story and seems to stay true to it's roots while adapting itself for a more modern audience. I'm glad that they made this, actually. Otherwise I may never have had the opportunity to be introduced to Cyborg 009 at all. Read Full Review
