    Cyborg #4 is action packed and it gets personal with the fate of the world at stake. The story keeps getting better and so does the artwork. Read Full Review

    The story is there, the pacing is on point, the characters are entertaining, but Ivan Reis' absence made all the difference this month. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with a final page that halts the action with the appearance of a new threat and follows the old saying “things will get worse before they get better.” In this case, Cyborg, the Metal Men, and the Tekbreakers are in for a sure to be worthwhile battle in the following issues of David Walker's inaugural run on Cyborg.

    The series' visual quality takes an unfortunate hit. Ivan Reis only provides layouts this month, with Felipe Watanabe handling finishes. This at least helps the issue maintain cohesion in terms of page construction and general style. However, many of the finer details that characterize Reis' work - the intricate line-work, the subtle use of emotional and facial work - are greatly diminished. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 29, 2015

    While we seem to have gotten over the daddy issue hump of the story, we've arrived right into the jaws of the exposition monster and it's a fierce beast as it tries to make you understand what we're dealing with.  I'm exaggerating a bit, the exposition isn't bad, I just can't come up with a reason why the Tekbreakers who dish it out are even in this story.  All in all, this isn't a bad addition to the series and some might think that this issue is worth the price tag just for the battle in the end, that's conveyed with some outstanding art.  Middle of the road issue for me though, but I hope that now that the majority of the exposition is complete, we'll start moving into some uncharted "awesome" territory with this series.

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Nov 2, 2015

    These criticisms, though misapplied to Reis (whose own work is so consistently gorgeous it ought to be tattooed onto supermodels), certainly hold true to Watanabe. The fact that DC was willing to allow a fill-in for Reis, arguably the books primary selling point, in the middle of the very first arc certainly seems to demonstrate a lack of either confidence in or concern for the title on their part. Thats a lack of confidence which, as of this issue, I certainly share. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Nov 2, 2015

    After 4 issues of Cyborgs meandering, the annoyance and frustration might be gone but the disappointment lingers on. For a comic that was hyped up as the new face of the DC You and the new standard barer for diversity in mainstream comics,Cyborg is shockingly vacuous. The enemies are stock, the supporting cast isannoying or underdeveloped, the main characters identity is only starting to take shape, and the artwork has only gone downhill from word one; and remember, this is DC putting their best foot forward. Despite all the pomp and gloss thats been afforded this series it cant shake the feeling that itll ultimately end up condemned to the same dustbin of history as all of DCs other mistakes, mentioned in the same hazy reminiscence reserved for Resurrection Man or Hawk and Dove.
