In the new issue of Cyber Force, we learn some things about the company Cyber-Data and the kind of methods they use to get the results that they want. This time though we’re being set a few years back to learn about Dr. Morrigan and how she came to develop artificial life grown from inside of a computer system. I was really enjoying how much we were learning about her. She starts off as a bit cold but it is due to the nature of her work and the goals she strives for. She’s not completely unconnected with humanity though and she seemingly has really good intentions for her work. Her employers, on the other hand, have other things in mind and these events are the beginning of what has set in motion for what Dr. Morrigan has set herself out to accomplish in the present time.
It’s still very much early on in the series but already we’re going to start seeing some turns on who are the actual villains here, especially with the recruit of an actual villain that was shown in the last issue. I think Cyber Force is fixing to lead to some crazy chaos. The build-up towards this so far has been a great pace as we learned a bit about four different characters in just 3 issues and things are looking to get really exciting for the next issue.
I’m also loving the art in this series so far. A big standout for me in here too was how in each panel there are actual backgrounds. Many books, even from big artists sometimes you’ll just get a splash of white or black or blue for the background of the panel. In certain scenarios, I find that it works but I appreciate it when this much effort is put into a book. It’s certainly time-consuming depending how much details you want in it but it can also certainly pay off. I think the high points are the facial expressions, from just deadly stares, madness, sadness, and uncertainty. You can really read how a character is feeling from the look on their faces and the smallest details are what can give the reader the right idea of how a character feels, with and without dialogue. Cyber Force is fun, interesting, and continues to add layers to its story as characters are slowly being intertwined. It’s not just a great sci-fi book, it’s just a good book that deserves to be looked at by everyone.
