Some thoughts about Cave Carson has a Interstellar Eye #1
The journey of Cave's team has taken them into space now and they might find one of the most important figures in the universe, Star Adam.
This obscure character is back and with a brand new premise that could expand his universe even further.
Jon Rivera goes solo this time and I believe this works for the better. As I've mentioned before, I'm not really a fan of Gerard Way's Young Animal line because of how forced and pretentious it can be at times but Cave Carson has a Cybernetic Eye was an exception to the rule mostly because of the natural dialogue and characterization and I've no doubts that Rivera is the one responsible for that due to the execution here.
The same charming theme of family is present here and this is particularly clear during the conversations between Cave and Chloe whose relationship remains as a pretty realistic father-daughter dynamic despite of the impossible situations they face. This being part of the Young Animal line obviously offers bizarre ideas and events and these are concentrated around a mysterious being called Star Adam who is quite fascinating because of the ideas about fame and mortality.
Michael Avon Oeming returns to pencils and his work is still perfect for the book thanks to his creative storytelling and unique style.
There's a second feature intriguingly enough about Cave's podcast where he reveals a few parts of his past which could be interesting in upcoming issues. Paul Maybury's art is appropriate enough due to his clean style.
Overall, a solid beginning for what seems to be yet another fun adventure.
