Is the rebirth of this technologically based franchise still fully functional? Read on to find out.

CYBER FORCE CONTINUES IN ITS GROUND-BREAKING RELAUNCH!
The massive corporation CDI continues to engineer technologically enhanced humans. Opposing CDI is a lone group of rebels. Will the public perceive the newly formed Cyber Force as resistance fighters battling for public good – or terrorists who must be stopped?
Not content in pushing the envelope just in terms of story and art, Top Cow will be the first major US comic publisher to launch one of their biggest properties with top tier creators concurrently for the traditional print market and exploding worldwide digital market for FREE. That’s right, thanks to the support of fans through Kickstarter and participating comic shops, you can get the first FIVE issues of CYBER FORCE at no cost.
Whether you’ve bought this comic book series in its prior iterations or not it doesn’t matter, because this version of Cyber Force is certainly made for both the dedicated or the uninitiated. Unlike other relaunches this one is more than solid as it offer a unique take on both the storied characters and the world they inhabit.
Marc Silvestri handles the entirety of the writing duties and the immensely talented artist more than delivers in the narrative realm. He reveals just what is going on with CDI and their upper echelon while continuing to humanize our primary leads. From start to finish this was an absolutely exciting affair but if I was to levy a complaint it’s that I wish it would slow down a bit to yield some truthfully intimate moments between all the various protagonists involved.
The art by Khoi Pham continues to improve with each proverbial panel. His pencil strokes yield just enough depth and detail to make the context of his visualizations both authentic and believable. There are some scenes where faces and bodies seem to lack the consistent level of skill viewed in prior moments but that’s all part of the inherent style of the talent.
Cyber Force #3 offers so much for no outright cost to you that you have absolutely no reason not to give this riveting jaunt it a read. Recommended.
