Dieci anni dopo gli eventi di Descender, molto è cambiato. La magia ha preso il posto delle macchine e le regole di sopravvivenza sono molto diverse. Mila, la figlia di Andy ed Effie, passa le giornate esplorando le piane selvagge del pianeta Sampson, cercando di non finire tra le grinfie dei malefici discepoli di una potentissima strega-vampira, chiamata La Madre. Quando però un certo amico robotico fa la sua comparsa, è subito chiaro che nulla potrà più essere come prima.

Perfect. While Descender was a sci-fi story with a little bit of fantasy elements thrown in, it appears that Ascender will be a fantasy story with a little bit of sci-fi tossed into the mix. And after reading the first volume of this continuing story, I can definitely say that I am all the way in! New Leggi tutto
That effing ending 😫. The hell! I need the next one already! Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
Back in the Descender world by popular demand, this Star Wars tribute space opera/magic mash-up story takes place 10 years after the Harvester/UGC galactic war. Andy and his daughter, Mila, are visited by an old friend, Bandit, an (illegal) robot dog we recall from Descender. But they face Mother an Leggi tutto
This took me a while to get into but once it got rolling I really got into it. The first couple of issues are mostly about establishing the new status quo. Magic now rules the galaxy. A powerful witch, "Mother", leads with an iron fist, stamping out technology throughout the remnants of the UGC. And Leggi tutto
2020 re-read: Holy f...! I had forgotten about that shocker towards the end. Oh well, all the fun twice for me then. Nice start to the series. Bandit is still my favorite. I need one of those. ******* 2019 review: I was sad when Descender ended. In my relatively short time as a comic book reader this ha Leggi tutto
In this sequel to the fantastic Descender, Vol. 1: Tin Stars Descender series by the same team, we are 10 years along in the same galaxy where magic has taken rather violent precedence over machines. Mika, Andy and Effie’s daughter find Bandit, Tim 21’s dog from the previous series, which sets off a Leggi tutto
This is how Descender continues without necessarily being Descender, huh? What’s it about? Basically there’s this evil queen who outlaws all technology and she has a religion based around her. There’s a girl living in this fantasy world with her dad who refuses to give in, hiding in the mountains. The Leggi tutto
I must admit I liked the first volume of Descender more than this, but I somehow feel the whole story is going to be much, much better. The places are familiar but different, flashbacks are very helpful to piece together the gap between Descender/Ascender. I can't wait where this all is going..
Damn. That escalated quickly.
I have a feeling that this will be even better than Descender. So much potential here! Ascender is more about magic than machines and it's working really well. I love seeing the old characters and the new ones are great too. I think that this is what Lemire can do best - stories about families and rel Leggi tutto
