Good follow-up to Hunter-Killer Vol. 1,
This review is from: Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer Volume 1 (Paperback)
I would classify Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer vol. 1 as more of a Hunter Killer book than a Cyberforce one. The Cyberforce characters play a lot of role in the plot and get plenty of time, but the H/K side benefits greatly by having a human face on it's villain, while Cyberdata remains much more faceless, for all the role it plays in the story. Stylistically, it's closer to HK vol 1 than the Cyberforce title too, but it blends the Ultra-sapient plot and Cyberforce's cyborgs together well. The Cyberforce characters get more characterization, but in large part because they have more than the HK team (Ellis and Argent and Morningstar excepted), and I did like how Architect from HK got a lot more development than in the previous volume, considering how interesting his power is.
As for the plot itself! Ellis of HK tries to bring together the Hunter-Killer team together with Cyberforce, while Cyberdata and other interested parties try and make them kill each other in order to try and prevent him from bringing them together to oppose a serious plot of theirs he's gotten wind of, all without Ellis asking Morningstar, HK's leader, for permission, for a starter. Even with Ellis trying to prevent the clash between the teams, things don't go quite as well as he'd hoped and there's casualties right off the bat. Stakes are high and characters from both sides play major roles.
Meanwhile, the art is fantastic.
It's a well done story that uses both teams and their respective opponents well.
I'd give it a 4.5 if I could, but baring that it's still a very solid 4 stars.
