    The climax is near and the future is standing on a pin. The personal decisions and dissonances of many of these characters are what will ultimately lead to what the fate of the universe is. With only 2 issues left, the conclusion isn't far off, and uncertainty is all around. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 1, 2018

    Descender #30 is an approachable and intriguing sci-fi tale of war and the right to live.

Feel free to give it a try. This issue will probably hook you. Read Full Review
