    Cyborg #3 is a great read! Now I recommend reading at least issue #2 before diving into this one, but this issue stands fine on its own as well. Semper gives us plenty of action against a vengeful Justice League, who seems ready to send Cyborg to the scrap pile! Semper also gives us a quick look at the first battle the Justice League fought against Darkseid in the New 52, and what would've happened if Cyborg would've never sent the God of Apokolips home using the boom tube. I gotta admit the alternate story was pretty dark, and Semper does a great job of telling it! Check out Cyborg #3! It's definitely worth the read! Read Full Review

    Like Green Lanterns before it, Cyborg flashes just enough promise to keep me invested. It hasn't all come together yet, but it's very close. But I'm enjoying seeing it all come together on the ground floor. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Oct 26, 2016

    Likewise, the new addition of Vic using his nanites to create an artificial skin to make him look more "normal" feels weak. While one can only hope that it's to further the storyline, it takes away from one of the most important parts of what made Cyborg a fan-favourite: his struggle to fit into society and feel normal, that insecurity of feeling like a freak in a crowd who everyone is staring at. He was always one of DC's best tragic figures for that reason. But now… well, he can look however he wants to look, even if it does take him some effort. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Oct 28, 2016

    This is not a bad comic, I even found myself getting into the story but it's full of stumbling blocks that trip it up, like how the fuck do you pronounce “Kilg%r”? This sits firmly under the caveat, if you've always wanted a Cyborg comic, you could do a lot worse. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 19, 2016

    This installment of Cyborg brings about some interesting mysteries that really gets me into this new take of the character's on-going struggle about whether he's man or machine...... Which I'm thankful for because this question is always lingering whenever Cyborg does something solo and I'm starting to get sick of it, but hopefully with this story it can keep things fresh and because of how great the art looked here and some freshness added, I'm intrigued to see where this arc goes.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 19, 2016

    Cyborg #3 offers a new character, new powers, and a new wrinkle in Cyborg's battle for his humanity. I can't say it's much more than a fight book for much of its length, and the new power comes out of nowhere too. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 20, 2016

    This series is still struggling to deliver a compelling take on Vic Stone. The question of whether Vic is truly human or merely a digitized copy isn't as intriguing as it should be, with the book offering precious little reason to doubt what readers have long known to be true. Read Full Review
