When a dangerous magical force finds its way to Earth, Boone is the only man equipped to protect his home from the dangers of the Ether. But he hardly recognizes his home anymore - every week he spends in the Ether is a full year on Earth. Maybe one man can't live in two dimensions, after all.

    I'm enormously pleased with the results of Matt Kindt and David Rubin's collaboration. Boone's story strikes a chord with me on an emotional and aesthetic level. It's a joyous read with marvelous characters, vibrant art, and a riveting story. Issue #5 is a turning point for the series, and an excellent conclusion to the first arc. Here's to an equally ethereal second volume! Read Full Review

    Overall, I've enjoyed the concluding issue for the first story arc of Ether. I found this to be a thought-provoking and intriguing read. It was interesting to discover more of Boones story and learn a little bit about his sad past. He is a broken and damaged man, who has sacrificed a lot to live a life of high-adventure and scientific discovery. Whilst I'm excited about discovering more about the sinister plot that is about to unfold Im keen to learn more about Boone and Hazel and the importance of their complicated relationship.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 17, 2017

    Ether #5 is a very satisfying ending to this first story arc. It givers some conclusions to the mystery we have been following but opens up a whole new can of worms by the end of the issue. Kindt has quietly woven a tale of how addiction in anyway can affect a person and their family, he has told a heartbreaking story of Boone's lost family that will stick with the reader. Kindt seems to have quietly woven this addiction story line in as we tend to get caught up in the greater mysteries of the Ether and all of its "magic" and fantastical creatures that inhabit its realm. Kindt does not let us forget that he does/did have a family once and going to the Ether has destroyed that. Read Full Review

    This is a book where the rational and the irrational are at constant war with each other. It is clear that Boone would always side with the logical, the real question is, can he remain true to his commitment to it? Read Full Review
