Some thoughts about Cave Carson has an Interstellar Eye #3
Legends tell the story of The Progenitor and how his own stories helped a race to survive but there's also a dark side to this tale, one that caused their downfall.
This initial arc comes to an end and a pretty satisfying one I might add.
Jon Rivera concludes this storyline by showing the wild creativity he's known for. The ideas that are implemented here are great including the running theme about a inventive mind can help people progress but the desire for even more of that power could destroy everyone at the same time. There's also a certain meta feel since we're talking about how stories themselves inspire others and I have the feeling that the writer is trying to create a pastiche of a real person here.
The character work is also pretty solid thanks to the charming human moments that show how love between two different races can be born in the middle of war and of course, the always touching relationship between Cave and Chloe. There's also a certain pretentious tone when it explores some of the ideas but works fine enough at the same time.
Michael Avon Oeming's artwork continues to be really inventive in every page thanks to wonderful storytelling and vibrant style.
There's another segment telling the story of the last days of Cave's first team and works really solidly in its own way while also clearly setting-up a plot for the future. Paul Maybury's artwork is simple yet effective.
Great read, more like this please.
