    Descender closes out this round of background stories with another difficult character that, while not deep or rich in what we learn, provides more understanding of him and the larger world that the story exists in. Lemire makes him interesting and fun in his own gruff way and I love the banter and humor between him and Scoops. Nguyen's style continues to impress the hell out of me with how this looks and working with the mines and mostly robots here just hits a certain sweet spot in otherworldiness. Part of me wishes we'd just get a portfolio of science fiction oriented landscapes, cities, stations, and so forth from him like we used to in the 70's. So much neat stuff here that inspires the imagination. Read Full Review

    As such, Descender #16 is as close to a true tragedy as Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen's robot space opera has gotten, showing the real cost the robot uprising has on the AI who lost their purpose in the slaughter. It's the rare story that turns a one-note, mostly comic relief character into an unexpectedly tragic one and it does so effectively and with significant, well-earned heart. Read Full Review

    Next issue, I guess we finally get to figure out what the hell happens to Tim and the rest of the gang. I'm not going to lie, Lemire is going to have to do some serious work to buy back my interest in this series, but at least this issue, he's got me going for another shot. Read Full Review
