    Cyborg #18 was a wonderful end to a story arc that I couldn't quite tell if I had loved till everything finally came full circle. The pay-off was great for all the things that unfolded whether it was engaging or just a bit confusing for what didn't fit at that point in time. This was one of those stories where you had to let the story tell itself and allow yourself to be open to where this corner of the DC Universe can take you in contrast to other stories/heroes.

    I enjoyed Cyborg #18 and I'm looking forward to the next issue! Victor finally has his life figured out and I'm eager to see where things go from here for him! Throughout these few books Semper Jr. has had Victor struggle within himself for identity and this issue ended that struggle perfectly! Read Full Review

    Cyborg #18 is an engaging story that left me wanting more and already anticipating the next issue thanks to its unique story and wonderful art. Read Full Review

    A middle of the road comic that is showing some potential. It will be challenge to get Cyborg and this title into the mainstream but the movie should help. Read Full Review

    Skip this issue and all the ones prior to it. Wait until new writer Kevin Grevioux takes over next month before you check this series out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 1, 2017

    This issue marks the end of this long ass story that really seemed to go nowhere and wraps up quick as hell to the point where things just happened because.  The art isn't bad, but it isn't great either because this issue is told only through narration and because of that, there really isn't any great flow between the panels.  All in all, the best thing about this issue is that it ends this story finally.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 1, 2017

    Perhaps Semper was asked to compress a bigger ending into a single issue. If so, DC did no one any favors; not the readers, not Semper, nor potentially new fans. Or perhaps, like me, DC has grown weary of Semper's slow-paced writing style and is hoping for someone with a greater sense of drama and action to take over the title. Read Full Review

    Writing for this issue is awkward. Essentially Cyborg is talking to himself during some nonsensical sequence of events. So Anomaly just commits robotic suicide all of a sudden? It's like Conrad just said phuck it, I dunno what to do with this mess I've created, let's just kill the villain in the most convenient way possible and give our readers the blandest happy ending we can do. Taking Variant off the board like that was an odd move. She's potentially an interesting character but again Conrad conveniently put her back on the shelf. The worst part is after months of this crap, it's rendered meaningless at the end, everything returns to the status quo. Machine Queen cameo is proof, good things came from Swamp Thing, DC needs to bring him back. Swamp Thing was proof not everything during New 52 was terrible.

    This is just a bad book and DC continues to not know what to do with this character. DC badly needs some more people of color featured on the writing and character side, but Black Lightening would be a worthy replacement for this book and a better chance to bring some needed energy to the mix. Cyborg as a character has not evolved enough. I would much rather replace this book with an Ongoing Black lightening or a fresh take Martian Manhunter. How about a team book with Black Lightning, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Death Stroke, and Big Barda. Call it Manhunters and make it a book about the team tasked with hunting down the escaped worst of the worst villains. Think about it DC.
