An Image Comics original returns next year as Marc Silvestri’s Cyber Force reboots in March, courtesy of Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill and Atilio Rojo.
“I’ve always loved Cyber Force,” said Hawkins. “These heroes are more technologically based, and we’re very close to transhumanism as it is! This story has a philosophical slant to it that is very appropriate to the changing times we’re in.”
Here’s how Top Cow describes the new series:
To protect the future, what will we become?
In a modern world where humanity is defined by the technology it creates, a terrorist strikes at the heart of human progress. One of the few survivors of the attack is a man named Morgan Stryker.
Mortally wounded, Stryker’s life is saved by his employers…but the price of his survival could be his humanity itself.
“Cyber Force is what first interested me in Top Cow,” said Hill. “My first pitch to Matt was set in that universe. When Marc created it, concepts of transhumanism and its effect on society were just esoteric theory, but now we live in that reality. We’re a species using technology to ‘perfect’ ourselves, but in what image? What happens when evolution stops being a natural process and becomes a mechanized one? What is the future of this new humanity? I hope to engage these ideas in Cyber Force…and blow a lot of things apart in flame and steel.”
Cyber Force debuted in 1992 from Silvestri, first as a miniseries and then as an ongoing that lasted 35 issues. It has been rebooted several times since then and has produced spinoff series starring its various team members, like Stryker and Ripclaw.
