Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and David Rubin (Black Hammer) are revisiting the intersection of magic and science in a sequel to their acclaimed miniseries Ether.  The first issue of Ether: The Copper Golems will be in stores on May 16.  Rubin provides the main cover, and Paul Pope provides a variant for the first issue.

The fantasy adventure series centers on Boone Dias, a man of science and an interdimensional explorer who can travel between Earth and the magical world of Ether.  In The Copper Golems, Dias is trying to seal the breaches between the two worlds, which have unleashed magical havoc on Earth.  His team includes a grumpy spell-writing fairy, purple gorilla, and motorcycle-riding spell hacker.

The original five-issue miniseries kicked off in 2016 (see "Dark Horse Round-Up") and was collected into a trade last summer, landing a respectable spot in the top 50 graphic novels month of release (see "Top 300 Graphic Novels Actual--July 2017").
