    Although this issue was not as exciting as previous issues, it was only slightly so. It is still an awesome series. Read Full Review

    After a slow start, Descender is becoming a really interesting series. The next issue will conclude the first story arc, and I'm sure there are big surprises waiting for us. Stick with Descender, you'll find out that it is worth your time. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 11, 2015

    There are a few beats where the story drags - ultimately, I'm still not quite sold on how spectacular Tim is, or the intrigue surrounding his dreams - but by and large, this is a beautifully drawn comic with some very fun characters. Read Full Review

    Descender continues to be a must have comic in this reviewer's opinion, as though the overall tempo has dropped slightly in this fourth issue, it remains an awesome story, with plenty of emotion. The dramatic conclusion also allows for an exciting new line of development, having me hooked for #5. Read Full Review

    Lemire and Nguyen once again put their protagonist in peril (because showing himeating breakfast wouldn't be any fun… downloading breakfast?) as Descender #4 keeps the momentum rolling… in space! Read Full Review

    GWW - Enrique Rea Jun 11, 2015

    Lemire and Nguyen continue to create an absorbing space epic consisting of big and small moments. A story told through the eyes of a child caught up in a maelstrom. Any good story keeps you wanting more and we can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Jun 14, 2015

    Descender begins to find its place. With most of the cast properly established, this book is starting to become an intriguing science fiction adventure. Lemire builds a good cast, albeit with a bad egg or two but the real star is the fantastic artwork by Dustin Nguyen. When it works, it really works. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jonathan Bryant Jun 14, 2015

    As the first arc slowly draws to a close, there are still far more questions than desirable answers. And though the space between breadcrumbs feels farther apart than ever before, Descender's trail is consistently one worth following. Read Full Review
