    As this chapter of Ascender's story ends, it offers no answers and just the barest shard of hope, but the story is filled with both light and feeling in a way unlike anything else. It's good. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 19, 2020

    Ascender #10 is a perfect example of both setting a tone and subverting expectations. Lemire sets out what the issue is about on the first page, then uses one shocking moment to seemingly get readers ready for another one" before reminding readers what the comic is about. He's very subtle with it as well, and that makes it work that much more. Dustin Nguyen's art is amazing, as usual. He and Lemire deliver a fitting capstone to volume two of the book.

    I enjoyed Ascender Issue 10, the sketch art style ensures each panel has the perfect amount of imagery never feeling overcrowded. It's a very subtle technique that forces the story to stay focused on what is important on that page. The door is opened for the next arc while closing out things between Andy and Eff in a few spectacularly beautiful panels. Read Full Review

    Ascender moves along in its storytelling paths in the way I expect. After a good round focusing on Mother the last time around, this one splits its focus well to give Mila and her group some time and focus while also showing what Andy is having to deal with in trying to rescue the love of his life and get back to their daughter. Each has some good action to it and delivers some new things to explore along with changes to the characters themselves. It's engaging and fun and I love the look of it all, especially as it brings back a favorite of mine from the Descender era. I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review
