    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 9, 2013

    There's no way else to put it: this issue represents exactly what this franchise needed. After being gone from comic stands for a while I have to admit peeling through this book brought a smile to my face, as some seriously worthwhile elements successfully caped off this re-imagining.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 11, 2013

    The original Cyberforce series always felt very much like X-Men with bionics, and this new version does some interesting things to get away from that conceit. Unfortunately, there is a whole new string of story-telling tropes opened up here, none of which do a lot to distinguish these characters from any of the various terse badasses of the New 52 or Marvel's deep bench of X-titles. They did, however, lower the number of extra limbs that Stryker has, which seems positive, if only from a balance perspective. Cyberforce #5 falls apart in visually, which combines with the uninspiring story being told to deliver a very disappointing 1.5 out of 5 stars overall. Perhaps the long-term fan can find more that appeals to them, but this issue really does nothing for me... Read Full Review

    . . FREE, 25pgs. Minimal ADs. Grade A cover. . . The conclusion of the first arc of Silvestri & Pham's CyberForce reboot. Kickstarter supporters should be excited after the wait, for this killer issue with extra pages. While it has plenty of action, its not non-stop ultra-violence. Instead it gives us plenty of backstory, character and plot development which really rounds out the arc and helps hook new and old readers. The art has quite a change this issue and plenty of backup was needed to finish this up, so we will have to see what the future brings there. The art is only OK but better at times, and the color is quite good. I never thought i would be so excited for a 90s reboot, but this arc did well in hooking me. Im in for the next arc!
