Both the Magical Militia and our heroes converge on the moon of Dirishu, the very place where the DESCENDER saga began, as the forces of magic and man explode in all-out war. Mila and Bandit may hold the key to total Armageddon, but first they will need to complete their quest and discover the true fate of Tim-21!

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 3, 2020

    Ascender continues to work a very different feel and flow than we had with Descender and that's a big plus in my book. I like seeing these characters, older and different, dealing with new situations in different ways and moving through them as they can. While the big reunion is what a lot of us have been looking forward to it does play well with a lot more to come. I love everything that we get with where Quon is and it leaves me wanting to know more of what he's been up to all this time while also really feeling the same way about the Father that Kanto brought Andy and Effy to see. So much more to explore! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 28, 2020

    Ascender #14 is a perfectly paced comic and that makes a lot of difference. Lemire builds everything up, giving readers two big moments for the price of one. Nguyens art is amazing as usual and his use of color really sells the feeling that Lemire is trying to invoke with the scenery. While the plot structure of this issue is pretty familiar, that doesnt make the issue any less good, although it doesnt hit the emotional highs of previous issues of the book. Read Full Review

    One of the best things about Ascender is that while this deep into the story odd twists and turns are to be expected, they frequently delivery in a way that is very unexpected. Read Full Review
