Media Release — From New York Times bestselling Mind MGMT creator Matt Kindt and Black Hammer’s David Rubín comes Ether: The Copper Golems, the highly anticipated sequel to 2016’s hit series Ether. Ether: The Copper Golems is a fantasy adventure about a science-minded hero intent on keeping the balance between Earth and the magical world of Ether. Artist Paul Pope (Battling Boy) also lends his illustrative skills for the gorgeous first issue variant cover.
Ether: The Copper Golems finds Boone Dias, our science-minded adventurer, trying to seal the portal breaches that have opened between Earth and the Ether that have unleashed devastating magical fury on Earth. In order to put an end to this chaos, Boone recruits a powerful team of mystical beings including a grumpy, spell-writing fairy; a bickering, lavender gorilla; and a bull-headed, motorcycling spell-hacker.
These heroes set off on a journey taking the reader through the centers of volcanoes, deserts full of living mummies and sphinxes, and a bizarre fairy forest in an effort to save both worlds from complete destruction!
The first issue of Ether: The Copper Golems goes on sale May 16, 2018, and is available for preorder at your local comic shop.
