    I need moreCheck out Dustin Nguyen Instagram for lots of Ascender artwork Before Ascender #1, Image Comics provided a character map and timeline. It's a great refresher of what's happened before. There's only one issue of Ascender left. Ascender has been just as good as Descender. It will be a long thirty days as we wait for the series finale. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 21, 2021

    Ascender #17 is a great penultimate issue. Lemire keeps the pace high and fills the thing with action, and the books ending will leave readers hyped for the last issue. Nguyens art is breathtaking as usual. Everything about this comic works admirably. Read Full Review

    I don't keep up with all solicitations like I used to so I was surprised to see that the next issue is the last one for the series. It's unfortunate as I want to keep exploring this place and all these characters, to see what they build out of things after the current events unfold, but bringing it to a close will also be good after several years of engaging stories and a lot of great artwork. This issue hits all the big moments that it needed to and I'm really happy with what we get here across the board with the cast, the magic, and the action. And that least panel tease is a real delight. Read Full Review
