    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 27, 2021

    Ascender #15 is a masterpiece. Lemire and Nguyen are perfectly in sync, and their work mirrors each others- theres a sparseness to the issue that is also pregnant with information and potential. Its, frankly, a beautiful comic created by two masters at the top of their game. This is the first issue of this story arc, and if the rest of it can match this one book, Ascender will remain exceptional. Read Full Review

    As with all good things, I wanted more. Ascender #15 is heavy on the telling (and could have used a little more showing) and serves as a bridge to the next arc of this epic sci-fi tale. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 8, 2021

    Ascender's heavy focus on TIM-21's journey here delivers exactly what I've been waiting for. It took a good bit for me to finally open this book since it's been so long between issues. I wasn't concerned about not enjoying or not reconnecting, but just that mental weight of knowing how long made an impact on me. Thankfully, it's pretty solidly interesting and exciting with what's going on and I can see a few paths it can take from this point to explore and more things forward. Hopefully, TIM-21 doesn't dominate the book as it progresses as I like the cast so far, but I'm glad he's back in the book and will be helping to chart its course. Read Full Review
