"THE END OF THE UNIVERSE," Part Three-Tim-21 meets his makers...literally. The Descenders are here, and only Tim can save the universe from their apocalyptic judgement. But from out of the far reaches of the universe, the Gnishian king may be the wildcard that no one saw coming. The penultimate issue of DESCENDER is filled with shocks, twists, and goodbyes...and hints at things still to come.

    Lemire has consistently built suspense into his story, but this may be his finest issue yet. With the cards on the table and the players all in place, Tim-21 must beat the odds to save the world. And I think he might just pull it off. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Jun 27, 2018

    Descender as a series has come along way from its inception. Lemire's story has shifted into something totally unexpected and Nguyen's art has grown in ways I thought were impossible. Descender #31 is far from perfect but it does enough to excite prior to the series finale and it conveys just how much growth took place in this book. Read Full Review
