    Ascender continues to be one of the best comics out there and this week it accomplishes that with a frenetic, powerful combination of deeply emotional storytelling that bring's Mila's parents back together in the worst possible way along with incredible art that draws the sinister tones out of the story written on the page.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 8, 2020

    Ascender #8 does a lot of heavy lifting plot-wise but still gives the characters room for development, using little moments to hit home what's going on with them. Lemire paces everything beautifully, allowing it all to breathe and develop on its own. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 14, 2020

    The book does give us a little time with Telsa and Helga as they talk about Mila some and the difference in opinion between the two adults in how this is all going to unfold. The bulk of it focuses on events on Sampson, however, and that works to its advantage. It takes a few pages to get into groove but once it does it moves forward well, showing how powerless Andy is and how difficult Effie is to reach. I'm definitely curious to see how it comes together next from here considering what happens on Mata, but that feels like the start of its own adventure. Much like what Mila is on, which is getting more and more complicated itself. Read Full Review
