    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Mar 21, 2018

    Lemire and Ngyuen yet again deliver a solid, seemingly effortless issue where almost all of our questions are answered without compromising the intrigue. In fact, I'm just as, if not more excited for whatever is coming as I would normally be. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 27, 2018

    The conclusion of this two-part arc reveals much of the foundations of the series itself and what our characters are facing and why. There are likely to be twists ahead still and some aspects that are different, but the crux of it is here and it's going to come down to how everything is handled more than anything else. Jeff Lemire has been going strong with this project from the start and getting all this exposition, so beautifully illustrated by Dustin Nguyen, is exactly what I'm a fan of a lot of his independent projects as it's easier to work this kind of stuff. The arc covers a lot of ground but never feels rushed and is able to breathe so that you soak up the details and the larger meaning while it also rolls around in your head afterward as you digest the ramifications. I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Mar 21, 2018

    Descender #28 marks an improvement over recent issues, but it's still not where it needs to be. For a series that started off so strong, it is a bit sad to see it wallow a bit. But it is getting better and I can honestly say I am interested to see how the story ends. Read Full Review
