    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 26, 2019

    Ascender #3 delivers on so many levels. Lemire and Nguyen are a fantastic team. The script and the art gel imperviously, drawing readers in and making them feel whats happening on the page. Lemire invests the whole thing with so much feeling, and Nguyen gets that feeling across on the page. Beyond that, theres a feeling of suspense throughout the entire thing as readers wait to see if Mothers forces will be able to get Mila and Andy in the present and a feeling of foreboding in the flashbacks. So far, Ascender has been a great ride, and this issue is a perfect representation of that. Read Full Review

    Ascender #3 surprises with some welcomed flashbacks that really help you start to piece together the ten-year gap of time that bridges DescendertoAscender. As always, Lemire & Nguyen don't mess around in the craft department. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jun 27, 2019

    Overall, Ascender continues to be a must-read title for genre fans. That being said, each issue has ended slightly abruptly, leaving me to think that this series will benefit in from trade volume form. Read Full Review
