'Cyborg, Volume 1: The Imitation of Life' has a clever title that has at least a couple different meanings.
Vic "Cyborg" Stone has a crisis of his very nature when he finds out some things about himself that had been hidden. He is also attacked by a villain named Kilg%re, which I just pronounced as Kilgore, so the name felt like a lame attempt at hacker-speak or something. Vic trouble getting along with his distant father, but his father is acting even more distant these days. Vic also finds himself infected with some malware which could be dangerous for himself and those around him.
I like this character, but it's hard to find interesting stories about him, including this one. It's not helped along by some of the mediocre art, especially in the last issue in the collection. There is some interesting things in this, and I'm looking forward to seeing Cyborg on the big screen, but this story left me underwhelmed.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
