    Ether tickles a particular fancy with me even though the story that we get is fairly straightforward. The Disappearance of Violet Bell is a mystery chaser and if you've read/seen a few of those you know the basic structure. The opening sets the stage predictably but what makes it work is the combination of the details, setting, the nuance of the world, and the visual design. Kindt and Rubin are well-paired in this project and I can see both of them inspiring each other to new creative levels to bring this place to life while infusing it with the emotional elements it needs to gain a few more notches. Boone Dias is still my favorite character in the run and this issue looks to give us something more to grapple with when it comes to him while expanding the world at the same time. I'm excited for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Without having ever read an issue of Ether before, this issue isnt a perfect jumping-on point point, but it gives the reader enough plot and more than enough artwork to tantalize and have the reader digging through the back catalog to catch up. Read Full Review
