    In just one issue, this title will be going away. That's really sad to me. I have loved this book from the very beginning. I hope this character continues in some form from this creative team. This has been memorable for sure. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 18, 2018

        Over the last two issues, this book has improved immensely. The second and third issue was a decent sci-fi story, but it didnt play into a greater plot and felt a little too reliant on being trippy. Last issue was a good one-and-done with a perfect emotional core, and this issue served as a link, not only back to the first issue, but also to the back-up story, while containing some cool sci-fi concepts and the same high-quality artwork that has graced the book since its debut. With the way its picked up in quality, its sad that readers will have only one more issue to enjoy it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jul 21, 2018

    This issue swings back up as the wackiness falls in the right place between plot and character. Cave Carson is at it's best when it finds a balance. This issue does just that. The plot surprises as Star Adam and Bulldozer return and it adds an element of hope while promising some cooperation in next issue's finale. The roller coaster ride that is Cave Carson Has An Interstellar Eyeappears poised to finish with a flourish and at the top. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Carter Hutchinson Jul 20, 2018

    Overall you can tell that the series has a clear destination in mind. But story wise this is very much a transition issue and might actually read better in a trade than single issues. When the series will actually get where it wants to go is a question unto itself. But the in between is guaranteed to be a long, strange trip. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 18, 2018

    An old character we barely met returns, and an even older character we never met also returns, and we're left wondering if we're supposed to care. I'm betting we are. The stakes feel low in this volume of the series, but it's a lot more wacky fun, and I think that's a reasonable trade-off. Read Full Review
