    Descender #25 helps to inject a much-needed sense of stakes into the end of the series' first phase. That"coupled with the book's beautiful artwork"makes for another near-perfect outing for Descender. With just one issue left in this arc, a sense of urgency and scale have taken over the book. And with this issue, Lemire and Nguyen continue to prove that they are two of the best storytellers working in comics, especially when paired. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 24, 2017

    Descender's building well to the final installment of this particular arc while also hinting at more of the bigger picture. Lemire keeps things working in a kind of minimal way but it hits the salient points and infuses enough character to keep it moving along since we've had so many more detailed character stories told previously. I really like what we get in the cyberspace sequence in this installment and hope we see that utilized again as it can make for some interesting angles to work with. Dustin Nguyen delights once again with the way the book is laid out and the just the way it looks so rough with great color work and a bright kind of science fiction world during a period where things are at their bleakest. It could easily have been done as a dark and moody piece but the minimalist and heavy white approach just raises my interest in it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Oct 25, 2017

    A lot of the impact of this issue hinges on how Lemire follows it up and sets up the next arc. As much as I would love another Driller-centric issue, it seems counter-intuitive to pump the breaks on the development of Tim-21 seeing as it's only getting more and more interesting. However with all of these threads hanging in the balance, it's hard to deny how satisfying it was to see Tim-21 finally start acting on his own. Read Full Review
