    Cyborg #20 is a great read. There's one particular part I enjoyed when Sarah actually rips into Vic about his abilities. For the last few issues, Cyborg has been dealing with wanting to be normal again, and Sarah finally tells him off. She notes his powers and abilities, the fact that he's a hero and a member of the Justice League, and then reminds him of people who have disabilities, those who can't do for themselves and how they still refuse to quit living. She reminds Vic that instead of constantly beating himself up he should be grateful for his abilities. Hopefully that conversation stays with Cyborg in the next few issues. Read Full Review

    ‘Wretched of the Earth' comes to an end with Cyborg #20, and this was a memorable story told for the experience alone. There is nothing worthwhile for Victor if he is taking steps back. We want to see him grow with every new experience and find a new appreciation for what he is as Cyborg. This was a well-written cast of characters, beautiful change in setting, and meaningful on so many levels because everyone was touched in some way. Read Full Review

    CYBORG #20 presents a beautifully executed narrative rich with a tale that challenges our powerful, titular hero. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Jan 4, 2018

    Lesson learned. Don't mess with your fate. It's a timeless story that every protagonist must come to realize, accept who you are and live life the way you were meant to live it. From Archie Andrews to Star Trek's Mr. Spock these type of tales bring the central character a bit closer to being human and help us, as the reader, relate to them and understand their fears and motivations. They become more 3 dimensional and the writer of these characters will have an easier time developing stories for Victor Stone and the next level of his experience as a superhero. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, the next time DC gives Cyborg another shot at an ongoing monthly, he will be blessed with a writer or writers who are more inspired by the character and with a bolder vision to give Victor Stone his long overdue chance at a truly legendary run. Read Full Review

    Cyborg #20 is the final issue and it finally addresses some of the complaints I've had with the character in-story, but does it in a rushed, heavy-handed way that blunts the impact in this final issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 3, 2018

    The end of the Cyborg series is a lot like the rest in the series in that none of it really matters and everything that our hero overcomes here will just be used again when the next writer takes on this character.   The art in this issue is good, but everything else is just cliched nonsense that wasn't a good time to read at all.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 3, 2018

    All in all, the 2-issue story seems weak and rushed. Perhaps as a 3-parter, it might have worked better for me. This is Grevioux's second issue after taking the place of John Semper Jr. (a change I'm still not sure is permanent). But so far, neither writer has wowed me; quite the opposite. Which makes me question the merits of a Cyborg ongoing series. Read Full Review

    What was the point of this, really? All it dealt with was what Cyborg had been dealing with for the 18 issue Semper Jr. run. And now the series is over. Why didn't they just end it at 18 like they did with Superwoman and Blue Beetle? Why the extra 2 issues that add nothing new to Cyborg's character? This is pointless. Progress is literally reversed in this issue. Thank God it's over, I guess?
