Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 Review

Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 is the result of publisher Top Cow Productions (an Image Comics imprint founded by superstar artist Marc Silvestri in 1992) talent hunt. Top Cow accepted submissions from relatively unknown artists and writers for consideration in creating short stories based on Top Cows properties Cyberforce (created by Marc Silvestri) and Artifacts (created by Ron Marz).

While I can’t go into the stories too much due to the length, I can say they are all well executed. You have futuristic worlds, assassins great action solid writing and decent to good art. It’s easy to see why the Top Cow staff choose these creators. While some have said that the stories lack content, the creators only have 6-8 pages to tell a story. It is not an easy task trying to balance content and page restrictions and at the end of the day telling a complete story. In today’s comic market $3.99 for 32 pages is a great value for your dollar, so it’s not like your paying more for less.

A comic like Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 is good for everyone. The original creators get to see and allow someone else to work with their creations. The publisher gets to discover new talent and possible future work with them, and the creators that won the contest get exposure and pay for their work. Fans of the franchises and comic readers in general get see indie talent that might not know about and may discover a new comic series to get into. Top Cows talent hut is great for the industry I hope a few more pop up in the coming years.

Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 contains three short stories from the creators that won the 2015 talent hunt.

Enemy Mine

Written by Kelly Bender, art by Jim Towe and coloured by Chris Northrop.

Force in Mourning

Written by Camilla Zhang, art by Francesca Aureli, coloured by K Michael Russell and colourist assistant Vincent Valentine.  

Weaponeer

Written by Paul Penna, art by Jim Towe and coloured by Chris Northrop.

All stories are lettered by Troy Peteri and edited by Ryan Cady & Ashley Victoria Robinson 

Bottomline purchase Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 and support indie comics and creators they more than deserve it after all their hard work trying to get to this stage. Also, check out their other work if you like these stories.

You can purchase Cyberforce: Artifacts #0 on Comixology


Just a side note thanks to the new website we now have a review template, so reviews will now be a score out of five instead of ten.

Remember comics are for everyone.

The Good
  • $3.99 for 32 pages is excellent value for a comic these days and the fact that fairly unknown talent being showcased. Intruiging short stories that make you want to know more about the charecters and an excellent cover
The Bad
  • If you are not familiar with the two properties you may find it hard to get into
3.5 Good

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about
    my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think
    its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

      Thanks for the info. I just checked, and it loads fine on a chrome browser. I will pass on the information to my site boss and see if there’s an HTML issue or something with WordPress perhaps.
