Ether, A New Comic By Matt Kindt And David Rubín From Dark Horse
Dark Horse is to publish a new comic from Matt Kindt and David Rubín, Ether, a fantastical story about what happens when science and magic intersect.
Ether follows the adventures of Boone Dias, a science-minded interdimensional explorer from Earth, as he tries to reconcile the existence of magic with his own scientific reality. Boone is a regular visitor to the Ether, a supernatural realm with magical residents. The Ether's residents trust Boone to solve their toughest crimes by combining his background in science with the Ether's magic.
Co-creator Matt Kindt explained the parallels between Boone's science-mindedness and his own: "Ether came from my love-hate relationship with the supernatural. It's not a genre I'm particularly attracted to as a creator, and I really wanted to figure out why. So in a lot of ways, the main character in Ether is a surrogate for the part of me that wants to explore the supernatural but also wants everything to be explained — which can literally ruin the magic of a supernatural story."
The first issue of Ether goes on sale November 16, 2016, with four subsequent issues published monthly.
And the covers are a bit weird…
