    Cyborg #6 offers fast paced storytelling with strong characters in gorgeous detail. The pace might be a bit too fast for its own good, but you can't deny it's a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Like I've been saying, you're missing out if you're really overlooking Cyborg and what this book has to offer in comparison to the rest on shelves. Great characters, fresh concepts, engaging on a human level. Cyborg #6 really makes you think about the things going on in Victor's head that he doesn't say himself. Read Full Review

    There is a twist in the book, which does actually make you wonder, what will happen and how will Cyborg overcome this challenge. This first arc has been really good, but it does seem slightly drawn out, and one worry I do have is that the finale may not be as good as the introduction or the journey. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 7, 2016

    So far Cyborg as a series for me has been pretty humdrum with decent installments here and there and like those occasions, this issue isn't a bad read, it's just that not a lot goes on.  It's pretty predictable, but even with its predictability, I found myself enjoying what we got here and really loved the art that conveyed it.

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Dec 7, 2016

    Cyborg #6 really shows you how vulnerable Cyborg is and there's nothing wrong with that. Immediately once Agent Taylor, now known as Variant, came to life, Victor says he knows how she must feel.He lets her know he's finally relieved not to be the only one that's a walking CPU. The ending is where Semper, Jr. really threw me off and that's great, because I totally didn't see this twist, and I think it will mess with Victor's mind for a while. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 8, 2016

    In addition to the familiar problems involving wooden dialogue and characterization, this issue suffers from the forced nature of the Cyborg/Variant relationship. She's too similar to Cyborg, and the deep, immediate bond that forms between them is very sudden and unnatural. She simply doesn't come across as a natural character. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Review (8.5/10) “Great!” Cyborg #6 “The Imitation of Life Part 6: Variant” Writer: John Semper Jr. Penciller: Will Conrad Plot: Scarlett Taylor aka Variant has been revived by the same technology that made Vic Stone Cyborg, and now she is learning from Cyborg how to be a “Lady Cyborg.” During the teachings, Vic ends up falling in love with Taylor and both end liking each other during their time together. However, is Variant all that she seems...? With the previous mediocre issue, I am so glad that Semper brought the magic back with this issue. The action was great and the new character Variant ended up being more than a female Cyborg character as she also knows his secrets and even makes love to him. Variant has all of the abilities that Cyborg including the boom tube technology, and her background as a CIA agent makes her also a trained warrior. It seems Variant has the potential to be a great character not only in this series, but also the DC universe and I want to see more of her. This seems like it’s going to be a long story arc, as the captured Silas story is moving at a snail’s pace and the fact that they don’t spend enough time on this character is probably the weakest part of this story arc. In the previous issue we see Silas roam around freely, but in this issue he is chained back up again and forced to watch the doppelganger Silas do whatever he wants in STAR Labs. Conrad is probably my favorite artist on this series and I am glad that he came back for this issue. He delivers with the ability to draw great looking human beings as well as strange tech stuff and so he is a natural fit to this series.
