Cave Carson has a cybernetic eye, that's pretty much all you need to know to get into this book. It stands alone in the Young Animal imprint, as do all the books, it seems, which is a strength or a weakness. Of the books of that line that I have read, I must admit, I was very interested and eager to read this one.

It starts rather very interestingly, and the story moves at a swift pace at first. Sadly, about halfway through the book I found myself losing interest. The mysteries at the beginning as they came to be solved just didn't take me anywhere fun and interesting. The villains aren't explained very well, their motivations murky and rather cliche when they finally come to light. The artwork, and I am no big fan of Michael Avon Oeming, leave much to be desired. There are at first interesting page layouts, and he does some interesting things with how he showcases the characters but after a while they all start to blend into one another. It seems as though all of the creators of the book lost interest in the story and the direction of the story. What's more the six issues here collected do not end the story but rather leave us with a cliffhanger.

I have to say Cave Carson is the most like a traditional superhero adventure book in the Young Animal line, and it starts rather interestingly but it quickly loses steam halfway and the artwork leaves much to be desired. An interesting concept, that sadly, took a not so interesting turn. Disney's Atlantis needs its under people back.

It's worth a read, but not a buy. And it ends on a cliffhanger, but I'm did not feel all that compelled to move on to the next collection. Also, it features Wild Dog, which is kind of awesome as he's an underused DC character. It isn't necessary to read it along with the other Young Animal books, but if you're a fan of underground stories like Journey to the Center of the Earth or a fan of the creators then feel free to read it, otherwise I don't really see why you'd want to.
