In the near future, Los Angeles is a city on the brink of evolution, struggling with a new wave of terror fueled by black-market technology. Enter Aphrodite V: a fugitive from her masters, seeking individuality and purpose. She is the bleeding edge of biomechanics, and L.A.'s best hope against a new enemy-one that seeks to become a god among machines.

One machine wants to destroy the city. Another has come to save it. Only one will survive.

    I was intrigued and absorbed in "what next" through this whole volume. There is a promise of action and thought provoking adventures to come. Read Full Review

    APHRODITE V #1 sets the stage for a series full of explosions, corruption, and artificially intelligent terror. This comic is ideal for fans of EX MACHINA, THE TERMINATOR, and any sci-fi robot classic. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jul 22, 2018

    'Aphrodite V' is a great introduction into a much larger story. It will whet your appetite for more great sci-fi action and intrigue. Hill and Spokes have a keen eye for storytelling that honors the genre but forges something new and exciting. It's a strong debut that's well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Jul 20, 2018

    Fans of science fiction, noir, or future crime in general will fall head over heels for this comic. It delivers everything you could possibly want from this genre and promises to give us more in upcoming issues. I'm looking forward to what appears to be a potential partnership between Carver and Aphrodite V, and will be paying attention to this one for sure. Read Full Review

    . In a world a bingable content, Aphrodite V might not be for those looking for high-flying action within every panel. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 18, 2018

    The issue is a good debut and leaves things open in how it ties into the greater story, read the first page, that'll make sense. There's a good set-up in the first issue and that's exactly what this is, the set up. Good action, good pacing, and some interesting characters takes a familiar story (it's The Terminator without the time travel) but presents it in an entertaining way. The opening of the issue indicates we might get more than that familiar story, we'll have to wait and see. This is a first issue that has me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Sam Corner Jul 18, 2018

    A safe first outing for Aphrodite V that does what it says on the cover but fails to make much of an impression. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 2, 2018

    Although we don't see much in terms of a larger threat for a character, the series does present the idea of a looming threat just beyond the horizon that she alone may be able to deal with. Honestly, I'm not sure that there is enough here to keep me around long enough to find those answers, but Aphrodite V #1 works as a single issue. For fans. Read Full Review
