    Cyber Force has a lot here that makes a comic book fun and worth the investment. From its main characters, tragic events, entertaining action, and they want to know more is what continues to bring me back to the series. Even though there is a lot of history with past series, it's very clear that the purpose here is so that new fans could be made kind of like me. The questions of morality with the decision making that comes where you basically trade your life makes these characters real as we know that many are willing to give up a lot just to be with someone. Then there's the part where you make the decision without knowing how the other person will feel and you just hope for the best result but it may not be a very welcoming reaction. Read Full Review

    The kernel of deeper currents appears in Cyber Force #8, but isn't effectively covered. A lot of space is given to a three-way brawl that other than inching that side of the plot along, doesn't provide much narrative juice to the reader. Dominque's trauma is much better handled and deservedly so, with the writing and art coming together to depict an anguished person struggling to come to terms with their new status. Overall, though, there is a feeling of going through the motions with this issue, which is a pity. Read Full Review

    The plot with the doctor whose life was saved last issue (by Aphrodite making her cybernetic) is the strength of this issue, but it is also one of the weaknesses: not enough time is given over to it. Instead of a fuller investigation of the trauma caused by this surgery-without-consent, much of the issue is given over to a fight scene. That scene is well-handled, but ultimately rather empty. Has Ripclaw actually been killed? If so then there is more consequence to it, but if so then it was delivered in a rather perfunctory manner.

    One of my (thus far unaired) criticisms of this title is the relatively short page count. With each issue, several pages are given over to previews for other Top Cow titles. While a little irritating in more
