Description

DC’s classic Silver Age hero is revived in CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE VOL. 1: GOING UNDERGROUND, the first chapter of a trailblazing new saga from artist Michael Avon Oeming (Powers) and writers Jonathan Rivera and My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way, the visionary founder of DC’s Young Animal imprint!
 
Cave Carson was once the world’s greatest underground adventurer—but that was a long time ago. When he settled down with his wife, Eileen, to raise their daughter, Chloe, he traded the controls of his vehicle, the Mighty Mole Mark 1, for a desk and keyboard. Since then, Cave has led a quiet life—even with the constant distraction of his otherworldly cybernetic eye.
 
But when a sudden illness claims Eileen’s life, Cave’s tranquil existence is shattered—and he and Chloe soon find themselves hurtling down a terrifying tunnel of danger, discovery, mayhem and madness.
 
At the bottom of that tunnel lie secrets buried for decades—secrets that hold the key to thwarting a conspiracy that threatens to consume the surface and subterranean worlds alike. But will Cave and his intrepid team of super-spelunkers be able to overcome this new generation of evil—or is there less to this hero than meets the eye? Collects issues #1-6.

Praise For Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye Vol. 1: Going Underground (Young Animal)

“Not only possesses the best title of any comic in recent memory—the third launch of Gerard Way’s Young Animal imprint is one of the wildest and most inventive comics in years.” —PASTE MAGAZINE
 
“ Another strong debut for the Young Animal imprint.” —NEWSARAMA

"it’s a compelling character study of a man grieving the loss of his wife and trying to maintain his connection to his daughter while dealing with a dramatic increase in strange shit surrounding him. Gerard Way and Jon Rivera’s story is rooted in the pulp adventurer past of their title character, but it’s moving in a much more high-concept direction that blends a number of genres into something unique and engaging."--A.V. CLUB/THE ONION
