While my favorite comic right now is Saga, Descender is not far behind. I love the watercolor artwork - so much more accessible than in Low (which I gave up on) and at times beautifully minimalist. The story is split into four or five arcs and is brilliantly told. Tom-22 is one evil dude whereas...

I'm rounding up because even though some issues in this volume weren't my favorites I just love this series to pieces, plus it ends on a high note.

This continues to be one of my favourite graphic novel series. This particular volume was incredibly gripping with plenty of story progression.

La calidad de esta serie de ciencia ficción, en un futuro distópico donde los robots han sido oprimidos por la posibilidad que se rebelen contra los humanos (adiós Tres Leyes de la Robótica) se mantiene constante entre los buenos dibujos de Nguyen y los entretenidos guiones de Lemire. Resulta dí...

I wasn't totally satisfied with how this volume was constructed - I'm fine with a major character falling off the map until their story can be told in a less piecemeal fashion, rather than being told in fragments - but this is also one of those volumes that's clearly setting up for shit to go dow...

I love this series. The art is unique and the story is engaging and never stale. It’s funny, it’s heartbreaking, and it’s full of twists and turns. I will now patiently wait six months for vol 6

Gosh, it’s almost like Lemire's watercolor illustration just keeps improving with each volume of this tale. So good! Driller is a real killer and still my favorite character in the series.

By law all robot comics must have a sequence where a robot goes berserk and shouts "KILL-ALL-HUMES!". It's always satisfying and this is no exception. Major story developments in this volume of Descender but also a fair bit of padding out the various scrapes the cast have got themselves into. At...

Still one of my top favorites. Like other volumes this is very art driven with less dialogue then other series and you can really blast though a book rather quickly. It leaves you wanting more which can be good and bad. Anyways lots of development in volume 5, the title is a bit of a spoiler so t...

Descender is just not clicking for me (but I keep plugging away. Thanks, Sunk Cost Fallacy!)
The soft, pretty, watercolor illustration still feels like it's fighting the genocidal science fiction subject matter. And the robots continue to feel not remotely robotic; they're just as slow-witted, sho...
