been slow in coming with this series, as various pieces of the narrative have
seemed so utterly random that they make no sense whatsoever. However, this
issue clarifies much of what has happened, going back as far as Cyborg #11. I think six issues is a long
time to create a mystery with little to no advancement, and therein lie my
I’m not a professional
comic book writer, so perhaps there are nuances to it I don’t understand. But I
do understand the nature of being an
end-user. So to create a significant plot point, and then reveal its meaning
six months later, seems excessive. What do you think this is, Castle?
But I do not fault
Semper’s ambitious storyline, which leads to a much grander scale. Imagine Hal
Jordan being the Green Lantern of Earth, only to later discover the Guardians
and the rest of the Green Lantern Corps. It’s that kind of scale in this issue,
even if it is little more than a variant on the evil twin concept.
Artwork has been
serviceable. Sure, that’s faint praise, but my expectations are low where Cyborg is concerned. But as the scope of
the book grows, longtime artists such as Allan Jefferson and Will Conrad seem
up to the challenge.
