Boone Dias believes that there's a scientific explanation for everything-even the impossible murder of the Blaze, protector of the magical realm known as the Ether. But as he gets closer to solving the mystery, he's realizing just how much he doesn't understand about the Ether. And the more time he spends in another dimension, the more his life on Earth falls apart.

    It's like a Dr. Suess story with teeth, grit, and mortal consequences. Those elements are hoisted up to the highest standards of quality thanks to David Rubin. In an industry brimming with talent, it's funny how there are so few that can instantly brand a book with their style the way he can. Rubin's style is so unique and so original that his depressing, mundane version of the real world is as exciting to witness as the fantastic environments within the Ether. Read Full Review

    Ether #2 is a step up from an already well-done first issue, by all members of the creative team. With the characters established, the drama kicks into high gear, and as the otherworldly detective story unfolds, your heartstrings will be tugged. Kindt and Rubn both show impressive range, as if reaching across a portal from the bleak to the beautiful. Read Full Review

    At this point the most interesting thing about this book isn't the main whodoneit plot thread. The most interesting aspect is whether or not Boone Dias is actually experiencing all of these adventures or if he is just a man telling himself something to keep going. Read Full Review

    Not knowing if this is real or a dream has me questioning everything that Kindt has shown me. As a reader he has me off-balance, but in a good way, a way that will keep me coming back until I get my answers. Read Full Review

    Overall, I find Ether #2 to be another enjoyable instalment to this story. Venturing out and exploring this unusual world has been both entertaining and amusing. There is something dark lurking there and I can sense the foreboding nature of it, however, that has yet to be revealed to us. So until then I look forward to reading the next issue and finding out exactly who murdered the Blaze and whether Boone make order from all of this chaos? Read Full Review
