    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Sep 7, 2020

    Cyberpunk 2077 #1 makes the bold but wise choice to make a fantastic comic set in the 2077 world without just being an edgy advertisement for the much hyped coming franchise. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Quinn Aug 26, 2020

    Overall, the creative team did a marvelous job with this first issue. The art and coloring are gorgeous and, for anyone who is a fan of cyberpunk, youll enjoy the themes in this comic. Nadia is an interesting character so far, but whatll be more interesting is just how shell settle the conflict between her morality and her job. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Sep 8, 2020

    I might be slight biased, but I loved this issue from start to finish, and the very distinct art style only enforces what hype I had built up for the game. The comic is almost the stop gap between the original Cyberpunk 2020 Tabletop Role Playing Game and upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 video game. This is definitely going to be an emotional journey of blood, neon and bullets. Read Full Review

    GWW - Brian Villar Sep 8, 2020

    If this was under a different name I would gladly give it a higher score. Yet it is supposed to be tied into a game that hasn't been released yet and not having that reference to understand the story makes this issue a disappointment. After the game is released this is something worth revisiting as it will make more sense and should be graded on a complete scale rather than the partial one I am forced to use.  Read Full Review

    Here's to Comics Nov 11, 2020

    Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team is a welcomed addition the the lore of this franchise. Issue #1 starts smooth, with Nadia talking about what exactly happened weeks before the events that take place on this issue, related to a rescue mission gone south. The way the angles and colors blend together results in visuals that just draw you in. I want to see how Nadia evolves. Definitely recommend this read, specially if you are excited about Cyberpunk 2077.

    I Review Comics Oct 2, 2020

    I don't have much experience with Mike Pondsmith's Cyberpunk franchise aside what has been released about the upcoming game from CD Projekt Red. Based on this initial offering it doesn't appear that the story here ties so closely to the game that you can't follow the narrative. I imagine you see these Trauma Units in Cyberpunk and that this story covers a slice of life for one of the characters in the universe similar to what you'd see if Star Wars pointed the camera at a random stormtrooper after an encounter with a Jedi.

    The comic follows Nadia and covers a mission in which she loses her squad during a rescue attempt. It's a very intense series of events in a job that would be hard to go back too. Nadia on the other hand is it more
