Geeks of Doom Reviews Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer #5

Geeks of Doom's The Insomniac was never much of a fan of CyberForce during the late nineties. He found that most of the comics put out in that era looked the same and the characters tended to run together. So naturally he was surprised to read CyberForce: Hunter-Killer #5 and found it so much fun.

It was nice to see some fascinating character development in comic books that were known in the nineties for nothing more then extreme violence. Writer Mark Waid has set up a very fascinating integration between the two teams, creating new tensions and a new dynamic between the members, especially Velocity and Ellis. While the writing was a big step up from the early days, it was the art that was particularly brilliant. Kenneth Rocafort’s gritty style and the dull colouring made the monster designs horrifying. I would love to see Rocafort do some straight up and down horror comics. His creature designs are like something out of Lovecraft.

RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Mutations
