    While narratively there are threads that still need to come together, Ascender #7 feels almost like a one shot, but it's an elegant and beautiful one that sets a new tone for the story ahead. It's exquisite. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 27, 2019

    Ascender #7 gives a reader a break from the overarching plot to spotlight Telsa, and it succeeds admirably. Lemire shows readers how Telsa went from being utterly loyal to the UGC to a broken down sea captain just trying to survive using three scenes. It's a deft bit of plotting. Nguyen's pencils and colors perfectly compliment the script. A lot of times, issues like this can anger readers- they want to see all of the stuff from the last issues resolved, but Lemire and company have mastered this kind of storytelling and use it wonderfully.
