Twelve-year-old Hazel loves spending summers at her grandmother's house. Granny's magical stories of adventure in the Ether are unlike the stories and fairy tales Hazel finds at the library. And then, one summer, Hazel gets a little too curious and discovers the source of those stories. When she falls through a well into a magical dimension, she learns that there's a dark side to the Ether that her Granny never told her about.

    This book is one of the easiest five stars across the board issues I've ever seen, and you can damn near taste the hard work and passion that went into it. Is that weird? Probably"Good. If I've learned anything from Ether #4, it's that being a little strange is something we all need now and then. Read Full Review

    Ether only has one more issue to go and after this issue it is going to be very exciting to see what Kindt and Rubin have in store for the final issue. So many questions are raised in Ether #4, but I really don't want to spoil them, it's worth this series for yourself. Kindt and Rubin continue just to be a fantastic creative team and are really bringing their "A" game toEther. Great story and fantastic art Ether has been fantastic read so far and we will see next month what is really going on with Boone Dias and the truth about the Ether world. Read Full Review

    Issue four of Ether continues to impress. As a story it's such a joy to read, almost fairytale-like. The marriage of an almost childlike take on magic, coupled with a detective story is a wondrous deconstruction of ideas. It's something that you wouldn't believe could work. Yet work it does through the creators writing and art with a heathy dose of feelings and innocence – an innocence that may be in danger as the final events unfold. As a departure, Ether is a wonderful read and I'm genuine when I say I wish it was ongoing, not concluding with part five. So sit down and just have fun reading it. How often does that happen?

    Overall, I enjoyed Ether #4. It was nice to deviate a little from Boone and Glums story for a moment and explore more of Hazels. Im curious about a few things, one being the villain in this story, Ubel. Every good story needs a balance of good and bad and it appears like we are just starting to scratch the surface of this. Im looking forward to learning more about these character's backstories and discovering why they are important. Read Full Review
