After a year of multiverse-hopping and fighting in the Milk Wars, returning to a normal life of digging and cave-diving just isn't the same for explorer Cave Carson. Sure, he's got his podcast, family and that cybernetic eye, but reminiscing about times gone by isn't the same as living. Luckily for Cave Carson and his daughter Chloe, they're about to get sucked into an all-new adventure-literally-when they go spelunking in a black hole! But what's caused this black hole to appears and what's its connection to the intergalactic music sensation Star Adam?

    Jon Rivera dives right in without missing a step, he and Gerard Way have taken this obscure character and made him relevent and entertaining with the first series and I see no stopping with this new foray deeper into Cave Carson's world albeit via space. Rivera's wit could cut your fingers while turning the pages it's so dang sharp, but it's his masterful storytelling and deep character work that makes this out of this world premise so human and elicit such human responses.

    Cave Carson is back and better than ever. With a gripping new story and the same incredible, iconic art, this creative team is getting ready to take the character to new heights. With a backup that's almost as rad as the comic itself, we can't wait to see what's next for Team Carson. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 23, 2018

    Cave Carson Has An Interstellar Eye #1 brings Cave and company back in grand fashion. Sure, the story is simple, but its a good hook for the next issue and its so visually intriguing that it keeps the reader turning the pages. Michael Avon Oeming and Nick Filardi are doing amazing work and it elevates the whole thing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 21, 2018

    Things are less interstellar than they are interdimensional, but let's not mince words. The fun and flash of the original series are back, so if you liked it before, you should like this now. Folks that never bothered to read the original series can also hop on here, with the understanding that you're about to read something weird. Read Full Review

    If you thought Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye was psychedelic and trippy, you ain't seen nothing yet! This first issue is a uneven in tone and content. Where it should be fun it feels tempered by a darkness. The short back up story comes across better than the main tale. Read Full Review

    Not the best issue as a Number One, but an interesting (if perhaps a bit too scattered) fresh start for Cave and company. Read Full Review

    I wasn't in. In fact I find he make a pretty job at kick me out. The story is strange, but strange didn't scare me. And for a first issue, I find he make a poor job to make us home. It was to quick in this weird part with the giant with glowing cloth & I was out. I tried to come back, but each page didn't invite me in.

    Cover - The variant is fun & in link. 2/2
    Writing - It was not my kind of story. 1/3
    Arts - The art didn't help. I like Oeming, but in black & white. There it's to ... Weird. 1.5/3
    Feeling - I have already solicited issue 2. After that I will not go further. A real disappointment. 0/2
