‘Ether: The Copper Golems #3’ - Advance Comic Book Review

Boone Dias and his team - a fairy, a talking gorilla creature, and a sort of Minotaur mage - set out to destroy the Copper Golems that are creating breaches between the Ether and the reality Earth lives in. It’s an exciting issue that’s visually arresting. Boone Dias is a scientist that has found a way into the Ether, an alternate reality that brings to life all our creativity, and Dias has been working as a sort of adventuring detective. Solving mysteries using science to show that, even behind the most magical of notions, there’s truly no such thing as magic. We’ve found that time moves slower in the Ether, and Dias can’t eat food there which drives him back and forth between each realm.

Now, something is trying to break free from the Ether and is using Copper Golems to do so. Boone Dias and his band of adventurers are trying to stop that. Something starts to happen in this issue, and a crack in Dias’ view of the world is beginning to show which arguably has already started with what we’ve found out about his family on Earth. What will happen if everything that Dias believes in is wrong? Matt Kindt has created a character with high emotional stakes and a potential for high tragedy but also a character that could be incredibly heroic at great loss.  Is he someone who sees the larger picture, or someone who can’t see what’s truly important? Someone that loses himself in his own world, or someone that wants to save the world?

Ether is a journey that’s worth taking.
