Kinda loving this series
Supergirl (2016-) Vol. 1: Reign of the Cyborg Supermen - Steve Orlando,Brian Ching,Emanuela Lupacchino

I knocked down one half star for the art - which was actually quite good technically, but the style didn't match the story for me - and I knocked down one half star for trying to incorporate issues from the TV show.   (A TV tie-in would work far better for that, and some of the ways that, say, Cat Grant was in this book?   Just felt forced.)   And while Cat is a character from the comics, so legitimately could be part of this without feeling like it's from the show, she's a doplleganger for the Cat on the show.   (And again, I don't blame DC for trying to capitalize on the success of the show, but I'd rather have a tie-in.   This Supergirl is a teenager - and a young adult on the show - is probably what makes Cat's appearance feel so forced.)

 

Still, making Supergirl a teen is a good way to deal with the alienation and anxiety and angst that comes with getting through those awkward, awkward years.   And this takes full advantage of Kara being a Kryptonian, adding another level to that sense.   Cyborg Superman is chilling in this volume, brining Kara part of her home - at an unbearable price.   It pits the family she's born into against the family that raises her on Earth, asking for even more unbearable choices to be made. 

 

And overall, that was kept me rapt, and makes me want to read more of this series.   The tension kept ratcheting up, the pacing just divine, and while I do think there are minor, minor flaws, it's not enough to keep me from reading more or from enthusiastically recommending this series.

Mated By The Cyborg by Olivia Myers Review
Science Fiction Romance: Mated By The Cyborg (BBW Space Sci-Fi Romance) (New Adult Paranormal Fantasy) - Olivia Myers

His face is humanoid, under his pants is a technological marvel.

Kimi, a curvy accomplished botanist, is proud of how her expertise helps humankind thrive on Planet Venora. The only negative aspect of her job is her occasional interactions with emotionless cyborgs, such as Lee 5, who help ensure the safety of Venora’s citizens.

When she’s selected for a special mission to visit Earth and sample the new plants growing there, Kimi couldn’t be more excited. Her excitement falters, however, when she’s introduced to the mission’s security detail: none other than the cyborg Lee 5.

It isn’t long, though, before the cramped confines of their spaceship push them closer and closer to each other, so that they can’t deny the attraction between them. But will she ever be able to discern his true feelings?

 

 

Review

 

No matter my love of cyborgs I just could not with this book. Characters do unexplainable things. Really unreadable for me on so many levels.

Oh, you big tease!
Cyborg (2016-) #13 - John Semper Jr.,Guy Major,Allan Jefferson,Tony Kordos

The singularity promises that humanity will die and the machines will rise.  Oh, you big tease.   You know that's not going to happen. I was sucked into this story, as Vic and Sarah try to take down Anomoly, and Black Narcissus fights her board - just a little - as she uses her company's R&D toys to fight crime.   (She's head of their R&D department.)

 

Still, I'm smarting.   Oh, everyone promises the rise of machines, and only machines, but no, never.   And yes, I want to read that.   I foresee you letting me down in the near future Cyborg.

Jumping Barrel (Cyborg Sizzle Book 7) by Cynthia Sax Review
Jumping Barrel (Cyborg Sizzle Book 7) - Cynthia Sax

He requires an Expert. She needs a hero.

Barrel requires an Expert for the Tau Cetian orphans. He’s looking for a female who is willing to commit to a lifespan-long role, who is comfortable with moving off planet, and who, preferably, has the ability to speak the offsprings’ first language.

Nola wants the role Barrel is offering so badly she bends a few truths. Yes, she was born off planet but she has lived almost all of her lifespan in sheltered Academies. Yes, she has learned Tau Cetian but she has never spoken with a local. Yes, she plans to follow the rules but his deep, sexy voice tempts her to rebel.

When a fact-morphing human academic meets her battle-worn cyborg warrior, deceptions are revealed, passions flare, and circuits sizzle. Wrong seems right. Lies turn into truth. The candidate least qualified for the role becomes the one candidate Barrel can’t let go.

 

Review

 

This is one of those short stories that make me very sad it is a short story. It started off grand. So, funny and sweet.

 

The hero is great and so is the heroine. Then sex. And then done. Sigh. I would have adored another few chapters of living on this world and being together.

 

Zip's story is going to be a blast.

I don't know why
Cyborg (2016-) #12 - John Semper Jr.,Ivan Nunes,Allan Jefferson,Tony Kordos,Guy Major,Will Conrad

But I had a hard time getting into this.  Once I did, there was a lot about the Singularity, Anomoly, and what can be done to humans - with or without their consent.   In addition, there's a parallel story where Sarah gives Cyborg information - and maybe has been controlling his boom tubes.   (Which suddenly place him six months forward in time.)   Or maybe Sarah gave him some information, and something else - like the alien technology that made Vic Stone Cyborg - was taking him through time.   

 

There are enough questions to make me want the next issue, but I knocked a half star off for the first couple of pages which I felt were too much exposition.   At the end, I found information that would have made me interested earlier.
