The classic series returns in a reimagining overseen by creator MARC SILVESTRI. In a modern world where humanity is defined by the technology it creates, a terrorist strikes at the heart of human progress. One of the few survivors of the attack is a man named Morgan Stryker. Mortally wounded, Stryker's life is saved by his employers...but the price could be his humanity itself.

    A brilliant reimagining of Marc Silvestri's original series, CYBER FORCE #1 digs deep into transhumanism. With great pacing and interesting characterization, this is a nearly perfect reboot for fans to jump on to. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Apr 1, 2018

    The revival of Cyber Force is more than just timely, it is an engaging narrative that is executed beautifully. A strong artistic direction elevates the emotional development, conspiratorial undertones, and pure sci-fi awesomeness that Cyber Force #1 offers. It may not be technically a new origin story, but it gave me everything I wanted as a new reader and I cant wait to see where it goes from here! Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Mar 29, 2018

    'Cyber Force' #1 ushers in a new era of action under the tutelage of creator Marc Silvestri giving this classic title newfound relevance to the ever-changing technological age. Hawkins, Hill, and Rojo are more than up to the task with a lean mean debut issue that sets off the series with a bang. It leads to some moral questions about our addiction to technology both as passive mediums and as scientific experimentations. How far will we go technologically before we lose our humanity altogether and to what lengths will we go to protect it?  Cyber Force is back and more exciting and relevant than ever.

    Against all odds, Cyber Force has found a way to do what its other old school Image counterparts like Savage Dragon and Spawn have always failed to accomplish: be relevant and interesting in the 21st century. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Mar 31, 2018

    This was a good first issue, and laid out some opening positions with regards to the tightrope between technology being used by humans, and technology using (or at least exerting a controlling influence) over humans. It is a topic which is ripe for exploration and I expect we will see this as the new series rolls out. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Lucas Fashina Mar 28, 2018

    I recommend picking up a copy of a Cyber Force #1 when it hits stores for the read. Though the interior art of Rojo is amazing, the cover art is bland and will make it easily overlooked on the shelves. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 28, 2018

    I really enjoyed previous volumes so there's a bar for this debut issue and I'm happy to say, the first issue clears it. It nails what it needs and gives us a new origin story that takes us in some new fresh directions. If you've ever wanted to check out this “classic” series, this is a perfect issue to start with.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 28, 2018

    The world is in peril and Morgan Stryker is just the man for the job, built to make things right. CyberForce begins with an anguished super soldier story and promises a suspense thriller. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michael Mazzacane Mar 30, 2018

    Cyber Force #1 is a strong first step to the new series. It rightly places the focus on the characters and uses them to deftly begin developing some of its core themes and motifs for the new run. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Da'Mon Guy Apr 2, 2018

    Cyber Force #1 is everything you can ask for in a first issue. Its packed with great visuals, instant action, and embeds a foundation for a really good storyline to play out going forward. The only glaring flaw is that it is too short. The story begins, hooks you in and before you know it, its over. Issue #1 ends leaving the reader wanting more. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 30, 2018

    Cyber Force #1 isnt a horrible comic, but its not good either. All its ideas are bog-standard for the subgenre it inhabits, and it bores as a result. Solid artwork cant save a bland story. Give this one a pass. Read Full Review

    A solid opening issue that effectively captures the reader’s attention. The artwork in particular helps to convey the emotion of the story. This is good, because my biggest criticism is that the page count is a little light; I would have axed the B story to give more room for setting up and developing Stryker’s reaction to receiving his implants. This is a little rushed and it makes less sense as a result: the quality of the art helps bridge the narrative gap, but it can’t completely overcome it. Nonetheless this is a well-executed issue in the main, and a good jumping on point for those of us who missed Cyber Force the first time round. I look forward to more.

    Never read the original Cyber Force, but this seems solid enough.
