    Im a fan of the Young Animal Imprint, so it probably doesnt come as a surprise when I say I recommend this comic. Though the story hasnt exactly caught up with the characters, I think the writers have time to make something fantastic since its only the second issue. Cave Carson has a Cybernetic Eye is a fascinating series and is worth your time. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 17, 2016

    Of all the Young Animal books, this is the one I picked as the weirdest and the one I had the least expectations of, but Way, Rivera and Oeming have put that all to shame with a story that reminds me of an Indiana Jones tale, only set in the DC Universe. With explosions. I do like the explosions. Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #2 is even better than the strong first issue, with wonderful art, expertly paced action and well-written, fun story from cover to cover. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 16, 2016

    There is a nice balance of quirkiness, nostalgia and humanity to this title. While it embraces all the nostalgia of the original strip, this modern take has the benefit of utilizing contemporary storytelling techniques. And as good comics always do, this book is able to find a way to really make the reader care about the main characters and root for them both in their external as well as internal conflicts.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 16, 2016

    There's a solid story emerging in this series, which may end up reading better in one sitting rather than parceled out in single issues. Still, this issue answers a few floating questions and provides some much-needed background that makes future installments compelling. The whole style of this book is fantastic, and it could easily be appreciated on its visual impact alone. I look forward to further adventures. Read Full Review
