Reviews

"Lemire and Nguyen just pulled the curtain back on the medium's new best science fiction heartbreaker." --Matt Kindt, Mind Mgmt

"Lemire (Essex County) smoothly doles out information while amping up the tension, and the innocent, friendly character of TIM-21 creates real heart in the midst of extreme violence. Nguyen's watercolor artwork is marvelous, using the medium's transparency to create fluid and subtly lustrous pages." --Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

"What a beautiful, beautiful book. Descender is worth buying for the artwork alone, so it's almost a bonus that it tells such a compelling story about the future of humanity in a universe filled with terrors." --Charles Soule, The Oracle Year, Letter 44, Curse Words

"The art feels light and almost whimsical. I love that. I also love the colors and the choice to make certain areas (UGC) bright so the panels pop off the page, and others (mining colony, Gnish homeworld), much darker, grittier. All of it together looks like watercolors without brushstrokes. Overall, there's a little something for everyone here in Descender." --Kirkus Reviews

"I love Jeff Lemire. I love Dustin Nguyen...This is a 5 star book!" --Mark Millar, Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Hit-Girl

"Your new sci-fi obsession is here, and its name is Descender...a gorgeous, moody story." --Entertainment Weekly
