Matt Kindt usually just blows me away and "Ether" didn't quite live up to my expectations, though I still really enjoyed it. A bit different from Matt's usual; this time we've got a fantastical world where all the fantasy you can imagine exists in the same wold, the "Ether". Into this world is projected an agent of science. He goes into the Ether and dismantles all the magical happenings and such by explaining them with science. Typical of Kindt the book also involves a mystery and our main character has to solve a murder case while he's investigating magic through science. The end notes let us know this series will continue to be a mix of mystery cases in this fantasy vs reality universe. The art is really fun and definately adds to the fantastical atmosphere. Not what I'd been expecting but very good and I'd be interested in reading the next volume.
La historia de Matt Kindt engancha y el dibujo de David Rubín te lleva a otra dimensión, impresionantes. Puede parecer un poco infantil, sobre todo por el dibujo, pero te acostumbras y es una maravilla.
Ether was a really fun read. The characters of Boone and Glum made a fantastic dynamic duo. They both contrasted each other with Boone's brain and Glum's braun. The plot of the book is centered around Boone and Glum trying to solve the murder of The Blaze (the Ether's guardian). At the end there is somewhat of a cliffhanger so I'm excited to see where the story goes. It's nice to take a break from Marvel and DC to read lesser known comic book stories.
I know a few people that don't like David Rubin's style of drawing. As a professional illustrator myself, I actually really enjoyed his fantastic illustrations. The character designs were so creative and fun to look at. The colors were vibrant and full of life. At the end of the book, there's a look into David Rubin's sketchbook and his character design process along with a few notes. I would definitely check this book out.
