    Overall I enjoyed Cyborg #19. Kevin took Cyborg a placed him on unfamiliar territory without his powers and he's making him survive. I'm enjoying seeing Victor struggle without his powers actually. Ultimately I hope he comes out of this experience appreciating truly what he can do. Issue after issue Victor complains about how much he wants to be human again, and now that he has the struggles of a human I wonder if he'll appreciate his powers more"if he even gets them back at all.

    Cyborg #19 is the start of a story which defines what being a hero means for Victor on a larger scale. Before it meant being a hero to Detroit, being a hero to those who are machine/ai, now we are addressing the importance of that word when you take away the location or the labels. It was only a matter of time before someone took that bold step to help Victor see that a lot of his problems really are just in his head, for better and for worse. Read Full Review

    My other concern is the magical implication of the rhino horn. Sure, magic exists in the DCU, but I just don't expect it to cross paths with a character of such advanced technology. Still, Semper stuck to the techno-thrills, and look where it got him. Kudos to Grevioux for going in the completely opposite direction. Read Full Review

    The issue is tense and exciting in places, but it's not much more than that. Read Full Review

    It's beautifully drawn, although nothing really moves, but the story is part relic, part neat twist. It's not all that bad, but lacks a consistent tone. Read Full Review

    Cyborg only has one issue left to go before this very under-written series finally ends. I had high hopes for new writer Kevin Grevioux, but sadly he won't get a chance to grow and improve with time as the book is canceled. I wish him well and hope he gets another chance to spread his wings and prove his mettle on another book. Read Full Review

    Even with a new writer and a new arc we're still dealing with Cyborg's only characteristic and that's him wondering if he's man or machine, but even with that, we get a new take on that old classic and get some decent art along the way.  I just wish we could do something different with this character while also having some continuity between arcs because goddamn, we just spent the last eighteen issues dealing with this.
