    Now, if you read the first volume, you obviously will have a better understanding of this world going into Copper Golems. That doesn't mean that you need to have read the first volume to understand and enjoy this series. Kindt and Rubin go old school and make sure to re-explain the world to welcome new readers. It reminded me of what Magnolia has always done with Hellboy, in that you can pick up and read the series with any first issue or series and understand the world and characters. There's just a bigger reward for those that read everything. Ether is back in an emotionally devastating way, but I was happy to get wrecked by it. Read Full Review

    The only problem with this book is that it moves too fast. You can read it very quickly. But that's okay. It hooks you like a drug and leaves you wanting more. Read Full Review

    Matt Kindt has me hooked on another of his books with Ether: The Copper Golems #1. The premise and characters are interesting. The art of David Rubin and Kiko J. Diaz is brilliant. This book easily earns a recommendation. Check it out this Wednesday. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 16, 2018

    With a straightforward setup in place here, Ether: The Copper Golems does a lot of fun stuff in introducing us to Boone and what's going on with him. You get a good sense of how it moves forward from the previous series while still being very accessible to new readers (and making them want to go back and read that original run). Read Full Review

    That said I like the concept and the world a lot. It got me curious about wanting to learn more about the world. I was a tad put off by how the magical creatures tended to talk more modern and cussed. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax May 16, 2018

    Once in the Ether, Boone's personality is markedly different. He is almost bubbly. He even looks a little different in the Ether than he does on earth. Here again, David Rubin's artwork is subtle and compelling. Even if the story and the character of the protagonist seem to be overused staples of comics and film, Rubin's pencils help to make the world of Ether something all its own. 3/5. Read Full Review

    Festival I didn't read Ether. But I asked to my comics shop when I was informed that was a tie-in & he tell me that this issue is a new start, so I won't be bothered by what I didn't know.
    And yes this is for a part a now story. But that not entirely true. I felt sometime a little out ... So I was in for some part & not really for other.

    Cover - I take the variant. It was a good cover but not really related. 1/2
    Writing - It was well done with some surprising drama part, but I didn't like the Pixy he ask for help. And I didn't understand why going backward in time at the end of the book ? 2/3
    Arts - Ok it's not the kind of art I'm fond of. But he do a great job. 2.5/3
    Feeling - I solicited 3 issue after that I more

    Liked the first "Ether," but this bored me. Didn't like this elf sidekick. Didn't want to finish it. Dropped.
