Given all that’s occured within this re-imagined franchise, should hardcore fans honestly stick around to see what happens next? Read on to find out.

What humanity remains of Morgan Stryker? Is he more man… or is he more a machine of death?
The latest issue finds our heroes in some dire circumstances, while enemies make deals and trouble festers for this burgeoning team at almost every corner. Through some creative forces this latest iteration of Cyber Force gets the opportunity to experience a re-invigorated version of their world with some terrible obstacles that litter the pathway.
Marc Silvestri handles the story, as the seasoned scribe and talented illustrator continues to paint a world that’s begun its march toward destruction. The chief accomplishment found here is the dialogue, as a naturally flowing body of text continues to give this book just enough authentic human interactions to allow audience members to accept these scientific advancements. Something that I’ve enjoyed along the way has been the evolution of Velocity, who’s slowly growing into something more than she was. The inclusion of Aphrodite has also made it possible for two titles separated by the centuries to continually share ideas and details which scratch an invisible wall that separates them.
I’m quite pleased with what Marco Turini has accomplished so far. He offers up a quirky but contained style that may not be up to the level of the series creator, but still offers an experience that’s pleasing to the eyes. Specifically the line work for character renditions and backgrounds, yielding a consistent vibe that made the whole thing into a visual barrage. The best part about the jaunt however came at the set up near the end, which left me easily anticipating a battle between two very specific players. Trust me, it will be interesting.
Cyber Force #8 could be easily dismissed as yet another book with weird elements, but I promise you my fellow fanboys and fangirls that would be a mistake. This is a smart adventure that should hold your attention from start to finish. Recommended.
