I really enjoyed this issue of Cave Carson. As a new(ish) reader of comics I tend to struggle a lot with Cave because Cave comics tend to really rely on you reading the art just as much as the words and I find myself really having to study the imagery to figure out what is happening (like when they kept traveling through different dimensions chasing the whisperer? Oy, that was some straight up confusion for me.) That said, I don’t know if I’ve started to get used to what to expect with Cave or this one was a little more straight forward than the others and was easier to digest, but I think it’s a really great start point for readers new to Cave even if they are new to comics. It does kinda just jump into things and expects you to know some stuff, but nothing that is important to the story really and as long as you’re reading the art too you can figure it out.
I’m excited to see where this issue takes us because it’s clear that this is the perfect set up for yet another wild ride with Cave and Chloe and I can’t wait to see what the creative team has in store for us in space. I said this in my more in depth review but I’ll say it here again: if you like Doctor Who, you will love Cave Carson. This book is definitely worth picking up, even if at times it expects you to really know how to read comics, it’s worth the extra time to sit with the art and piece it all together (and if you can’t, don’t worry I’ll be over here doing my best to make sure you still understand, just check out the in depth reviews).
Two thumbs up. Would read again and can’t wait for more!
