    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 7, 2020

    Ascender #13 feels like a clinic on how to do a mid-chapter of a story arc. Lemire sets up multiple plot points for the future and never skimps out on the good character moments that make this book shine. Nguyen's art impresses as always, giving the sci-fi stuff the harder edges it needs and the fantasy stuff a nice, dreamy feel to it. This is a great comic, plain and simple. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 6, 2020

    This series still delivers really well for me in what I love most about it. The larger storyline is being unfurled slowly with new revelations and new things to explore with each issue. And issues like this bring out a lot of neat little new bits while providing it through some amusing ways at times, such as Mila's narration. The arrival of Phages has me the most excited to see what's next for events there but I'm really keen to see the truth behind Kanto and his story as well as getting more time with Andy and Effie now that she's fully back to normal. It's such a fun book that's so easy to re-read and draw more threads together. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Sep 30, 2020

    ASCENDER #13 is equal parts introspective and adrenaline-fueled. And this is why we continue to love Lemire's storytelling. Read Full Review

    There is a lot here, but what makes the book perhaps a big stronger than some of the other transitional issues of the run, is we get to really dig into Mila, her personality, her thoughts, her situation. Read Full Review
