    Descender #22 gets “Rise of the Robots” off to a stellar start, with there being more than a few shocking twists along the way. This along with the bold character development leaves us with a product that's easy to praise, with the concluding moments sure to leave readers itching for more. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 20, 2017

    Descender gets its new arc off in a big way while not providing much in the way of answers. Lemire's keeping the pacing at a good level where there's a lot of tension and sense of urgency about things while still expanding on what's going on and how it's going to impact the bigger picture. And just like past issues, Dustin Nguyen makes this an absolute delight to read multiple times. I love the way the pages come across, the texture of it all, the color design, and just the rawness of it where sometimes it almost feels like storyboards taken a step further and about to be fully animated. It has its own life that just draws me in, panel after panel. Very good stuff that has me eager to see what else this arc has in store. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Jul 19, 2017

    Descender #22 is another worthy entry in the series and while the story is good and serves it's purpose, despite minor gripes and character misuse, the art is truly where this issue shines. I would and have recommended this book on mere art alone. Read Full Review
