    What is Descender? It started like a sweet little story about a child-bot, it moved on to focus on Andy's struggle between his job and his feelings, then it became Quon's story of betrayal and lies, it moved on to the clash between the two TIM units" what now? Follow it and you'll find out! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 21, 2017

    Descender's picking up momentum again with the Oribtal Mechanics arc and it's pretty clear here that there's going to be some chaos ahead. Lemire and Nguyen continue to blend some solid pieces together to tell the tale with some emotional aspects, such as Andy and Blugger early on, to some fun action sequences and reactions, such as TIM-21's abilities and Telsa's views of it. There are a lot of pieces on the board and they're definitely working well individually and as an interwoven tale. It's a book that continues to work well in the individual issue form while taking on a bigger feeling when you read through a whole lot of it at once. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    For a series that's largely lived and died on Dustin Nguyen's lush paints, it's refreshing to have the story back up to par. Read Full Review

    A great return to form of the sci-fi hit that still has some bumps but delivers slick designs and great plotting. Read Full Review
