    Descender never stopped firing on all cylinders for me, even when it devoted an installment to my favorite robodog, but it's ramping up hard and strong for what's to come next. Lemire is delivering a really solid story with different elements in different locations but I have a hard time imagining that it would work anywhere near as well without Dustin Nguyen. Lemire packs a lot of dialogue and story elements into each issue and I feel like I never talk about Nguyen's artwork enough but I really love the expressiveness that comes through with the minimal approach in some pages, such as Telsa's time against white backgrounds made starker by the color work for her hair and a few other elements. When it shifts to more detailed and complicated scenes the layouts are just fantastic and cinematic as they draw you in. I love his work in general but this series is just on a whole other level in how he's delivering with it, issue to issue. Read Full Review

    It's one step forward, two steps back for this series. Following last issue's seeming return to form, the latest from Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen again finds itself marred by strange plotting choices and uneven character work. Read Full Review
