    It looks like Kindt is heading towards some kind of revelation. Maybe a convergence of the two plot lines we've seen in the series so far. Read Full Review

    Kindt is really proving he can write almost anything at this point. Ether #3 is just more proof that there is a reason his name is attached to books from different publishers, and the list keeps growing. The comedy in Ether is sharp, and the mystery is interesting. The world is so much fun, and while we haven't gone that far into the lore or species, it feels like there is something very deep there. I would absolutely recommend this book in single issue or trade form when the issues are collected. If you do not want to wait, see if your local comic shop has the first two issues, grab this, and then the final two as they come out. As I have said before, if you like Dr. Strange, or a fun lighthearted book with a charming and sometimes goofy hero, then this is the book for you. It's about magic and science, but it never takes itself too seriously. Read Full Review

    The half-mechanical, half magical golem is an interesting sight from artist David Rubin. The brief peek of how it works is interesting and some solid art. The Faerie Kingdom is a unique place, from what is seen and revealed. Rubin does a great job creating distinguishing the cities in the Ether giving each a unique style all their own.

    Ether continues to be one my most anticipated books each and every month and has yet to disappoint. It reminds me of the early days of Hellboy in that here is a world that you are familiar with, but there are things that go bump in the night. However instead of the monsters coming to get you we see there is a mundane bureaucratic system to the world of magic, even baboon gatekeepers are nine to five. Read Full Review

    Ether #3 is a strong midpoint to this limited series (only two issues remaining) and digs deep into the mysteries that have been set up. Matt Kindt and David Rubin have developed some wonderful characters with Boone Dias and Glum. They have fleshed out both characters and after the first two issues, the readers are invested in them. Ether #3 pulls together great mystery, action, comedy and drama all in one issue. Read Full Review

    Kindt and Rubn continue to build a gorgeous world around the increasingly tragic story of Boone Dias. I only wish we had more than a mini-series to explore all the corners of Ether that these issues have only hinted at. Read Full Review

    Overall, I enjoy venturing into the Ether with Boone and Glum. It's an interesting world filled with magic that is reimagined in an interesting and creative way. The combination of an inventive concept, filled with likeable and funny characters, along with fun and whimsical art makes for an enjoyable read. I look forward to the next issue and once again stepping through the portal with Boone to this weird and wonderful world where magic and science collide! Read Full Review
