Ehmm Theory focuses on Gabriel Ehmm, a young man who believes he was killed by his girlfriend and sent back to earth by Saint Peter to find out what’s causing dead people to rise as dwarf zombies. Accompanied by his talking cat Whispers and Alyona, an older woman who knew his biological parents, they are on the search for his father. Saint Peter told him he was the key to the mystery. But not everything, and everyone, are who they claim to be.

This is an unusual comic. Third in a four part series, there are many aspects to the plot. Missing parents, multiple dimensions, monsters, superhero teams that may or may not be bad, jilted love and at the center a character who frankly isn’t that smart. And that aspect is what makes the comic a bit hard to get into. He doesn’t ever question anything. It would be buyable if it was once in a while, but given everything that happens to him that would be out of the norm for any person, it’s weird that he just goes with it.

In this issue, two many aspects are at play. The continuation of back story on his parents from the previous issue and a lot of his gullible beliefs are pointed out to him as wrong. Both motivate him to start to finally step up and do what he needs to do.

Brockton McKinney’s writing is very creative. The world he is building is fun to play in. The characters though are a little flat, aside from Alyona. She is hands down the most developed character in the series. The art by Larkin Ford and Jason Strutz is fun and colorful. The action panels don’t always flow well, but the detailing is helps to bridge the gaps.

Given I am not sure how they could wrap up all the storylines by the next, and supposedly last, issue, I am assuming this is an intro of a new series. I hope so. Though there are a few hiccups, the world is quite unique. And if the goal is to watch Gabe grow and mature, this is a nice introduction to where he is starting from. Though starting at the beginning of a series, especially one so close to it, this is a fine issue to jump in on. It covers what has a happened and though there might be a little confusion, overall it will fill in the gaps. Overall, it isn’t a rush out to read it issue, it is a nice one to do on a lazy day with a cup of coffee.
