    One thought on “Descender #1

    1. Heidi The Hippie Reader

      I've heard a lot of good buzz about Descender and I'm pleased to say that it lived up to all of it. It isn't easy writing the first entries in a series without descending into character listing and lengthy explanations on setting. Descender manages to introduce itself completely without any of that boring stuff.On a distant planet in a futuristic setting, an enormous robot lands on the government's home world. Simultaneously, huge robots land on several other planets. These gigantic machines att [...]

      This is issue number #1 in the Descender series and I'm going to go right ahead and say that I adore the artwork of this series. It's fabulously watercolour and it's kind of fantastically subtle. The series itself seems to be about a young robot trying to survive in this futuristic sci-fi setting and I think that as a starting Issue we certainly get introduced to some initial cool ideas. The artwork, as I have said, is truly the beautiful thing about this series so far and whilst I found the sto [...]

      Descender by Jeff Lemire came into being amid huge fanfare and critical acclaim and it is well deserved. There is perhaps nothing like this comic out in the medium right now and may have never been. Hidden behind this tale of a lost and abandoned little robot are the underlying demons of our own society. This is the tale of loss and brutality and the heartache of loneliness.With the writing of Jeff Lemire and the artwork of Dustin Nguyen, Descender is book that should quickly garner a cult follo [...]

    4. Kristen

      This sci-fi comic has a really interesting concept that seems like it's to deal with themes like humanity (versus artificial intelligence), loneliness, survival, and the unknown. The writing is well done and Tim-21's character pulls me in. The art is nice if you like watercolour paintings, but it's not really for me. The style suits the story, though so I won't fault it much for that. I would like to follow this story, especially to see what happens to Tim-21. This is a very promising first issu [...]

      Beautiful. Elegant. Mesmerizing. If you read my review of comics I don't say these things often. Descender is different. Feels like a story that Asimov would have concocted. Drawn with just enough abstract to allow your mind to fill in the gaps. This is a comic book series that will leave you dreaming and imagining yourself in this created world.

    6. Andreja

      Can we just talk about the front cover, it's so beautiful. I like the main characters Dr Quon and Tim. The story looks complex and compelling with all the different worlds and the coexistence of humans, aliens and robots. This is a no-brainer, 5 stars.

    7. AmandaDana

      Descender is emotion wrapped in wires, and it's a great start to a space opera focused more on the existentialism of what makes something sentient.Ten years after "Harvesters" (robots bigger than you can imagine) have pretty much decimated eight fully populated planets, a robot named TIM 21 awakes to find his mining colony in ruins, and his family missing.​He discovers that after the mass destruction of the planets, humans took to robot cullings, nearly wiping out a good bit of the AI populati [...]

      *3.5 starsI enjoyed reading this fist volume in a new sci fi graphic novel series. The art style, which is painted in water colors, took me a little time to get used to. The lines are not sharp and crisp as most other graphic novels I have read, so some panels were a little difficult to make out. But by the end of the book, I did get used to the style. And the style often added to the atmosphere of the book, too. The story is interesting and always held my attention. It's a promising first book [...]

    9. Karla

      Me encanto esta novela gráfica, es la primera que leo en mucho tiempo, no creí que la disfrutaría tanto. Su originalidad me sorprendió bastante, las ilustraciones son bellísimas, me encanto que el ilustrador verdaderamente logrará transportarte dentro de la historia con sus preciosas imágenes, y que decir de la novela en general, está muy bien escrita, si te gusta la ciencia ficción, eso de los robots, con algunos toques de humor este es el indicado para ti. Necesito leer la segunda par [...]

    10. Richard

      So far, with this first book, I am already intrigued and really wanting to see what happens next. I love the characters and the art style and the story so far is very interesting. I would've given it 5 stars but it gets 4 because this first story arc doesn't explain a whole lot. One character reveals all of his cards, but it doesn't seem to have a whole lot of impact just yet because the story is still so fresh. I'm sure this will change going forward, but 4 stars for now.

    11. Martin

      Excellent graphic novel, with an incredible artistic style that complements the story perfectly. You very quickly go from the perspective of one lonely robot child to an entire galaxy of competing forces, and by the end of 30 pages you're completely immersed in a very deep story. Descender is on the level of all time great graphic novels like Saga and Locke & Key.

    12. Lauren

      First of the series, introducing Tim-21, the child companion robot. Intriguing world, and good storytelling - I'll be back for more of this series. Format note: my library offers several graphic novels in ebook form but I wasn't sure how it would look while reading on my phone - good news, it was vibrant and easy to scroll and magnify for details. Another win for Hoopla Digital!

    13. Kim

      Oh, Jeff Lemire. You can do no wrong. The worlds of United Galactic Council were destroyed by Harvesters ten years ago, and a small boy-bot on a mining colony may be the old clue in understanding these enormous destroying robots. Tim-21 has "slept" through the destruction, but now he's awake and the adventure begins. I predict LOTS of tears.

    14. Juan

      Muy buen comienzo para una historia que, por desgracia, ya he visto antes en otras versiones: la Jihad Butleriana de "Dune", las Guerras Cylon de "Battlestar Galactica" Aún así: el dibujo es muy bonito y superior al de otras series actuales, y vamos a darle una oportunidad a ver cómo evoluciona.

    15. April

      This is a brand new series by Jeff Lemire that I picked up because everyone at my comic book store raved about it, so I decided to take a chance. Boy, am I glad I did! Very excited to see where this is going to go.

    16. Britt Freeman

      i'm not really sure where to start. while using familiar tropes the story seems fresh and unlike anything i've seen before. the hints at what's to come are wonderful. it's also been a long time since i've seen anyone watercolor an entire book. very much impressed. cant' wait for the next issue.

    17. Kevin

      Interesting introduction to the universe, characters are not really developed very much in this issue but the premise is intriguing and I look forward to the next issue to see how the story moves forward. Love the artwork looks like hand watercolors and is most striking on the large images.

    18. Matthias

      Brilliant first issue! Complex and intriguing world building, interesting characters, compelling storytelling, and fascinating art design. A must read!

    19. Allen

      This has the potential to be one of my favorite comic book series, but maybe I'm jumping the gun. I don't even care about Sci-fi. The art in Descender is just so brilliant.

    20. Princess

      Atmospheric space opera with a lot of heart. One of the most promising beginnings to a scifi comic series.

    21. Lila

      Pretty damn good.Huge scope from the start, but with a firm grip on the world and story.All the praise and advanced movie deal, totally deserved.Nguyen excellent.
