After dodging the apocalypse, four Indigenous outcasts are past the point of no return on their audacious one-way, time travel mission to save the world by killing Christopher Columbus. Immersed in 1492 as an undercover crewman, Tad-a brilliant Lakota linguist and wildly unqualified avenger-must rally from the tragic consequences of his early actions on board and recommit to spilling the admiral's blood before landfall. In the year 2112, ringleader Yellow Kid and headstrong Sosh encounter a haunting sign of Tad;s progress in the past, and back at the cave portal, Emily watches her back as her suspicion of Yellow Kid skyrockets.

    Am loving the conversations between Sosh and Yellow Kid that speculate about what might happen if they change things for the worse. Would they go back again and try and change that? Read Full Review

    While the end of this issue doesn't have quite the hook that I think it needed to, the events of the issue overall certainly deliver more than enough to stick with it. Tad's journey is really fun to watch unfold as he has to struggle with the morality that has him killing several people in order to survive and achieve his goals. Seeing the changes happening in 1492 definitely makes it intriguing. The 2112 material isn't bad but it's the storyline that I think will read better when you have multiple issues at once to dig into rather than piecemeal like this because I don't think we have a strong connection to either character yet and there's a different kind of feeling about the whole thing. I'm intrigued by it but I've not really connected with the characters yet. Read Full Review

    Earthdivers #2 is a solid read whose details really stand out. Small things said or concepts thrown in make a simple time travel action story something more. There's a great sci-fi aspect to it where it's exploring so much of its concept and delivering something new and different for readers at the same time. Read Full Review

    Earthdivers will make you question the time-travel logic learned through previous TV and movie projects, such as time trying to erase anomalies, etc. Read Full Review
