Joshuah Hale Fialkov continues to add depth and character to Cyblade. There is more to her hard persona. She may have a bunch of cybernetic implants in her but she is far more human than the 'enemy' is. Lee Ferguson's art usually works for me. It is good but sometimes the characters appear a bit cartoony. More so if they are in the background. Perhaps there's a part of me that can still recall Marc Silvestri's artwork.
Because of the characterization given to Cyblade along with the action and suspense, I give this issue a 4.5 out of 5. There's a whole hidden world of esponage going on. Things are set up in this issue to add to that feel. I'm not totally crazy about the lovey-dovey parts but I understand how it is important to Cyblade's development. There is also a very nice Stjepan Sejic cover.
And the last page promises to give us some hardcore action in issue 4.
Here's the preview:
