"Jeff Lemire has dreamt up an emotional, imaginative new universe, lavishly brought to life by the great Dustin Nguyen. I can't wait to see where they take TIM-21 next."  - Brian K. Vaughan, SAGA

"I am already rooting for poor Tim, theorizing about the origin of the Harvesters and gripping the cross bar of the roller-coaster begging for another ride."-- Damon Lindelof- co- creator of Lost, and HBO's the Leftovers

“Two largely separate aspects of your own fandom have just come together to create the comics version of a superweapon.”-BLEEDING COOL

“Jeff Lemire has a real talent for ​drawing me into cold, alien worlds that I'd never dream I'd care about and then having me not want to leave them.”--Mark Waid, IRREDEEMABLE

“The craft on display in this first issue of DESCENDER is tour-de-force stuff — Lemire’s ideas are, as ever, as potent as his prose, and Dustin Nguyen’s art is deft and delightful, running from warmth to chilling, gentle to brutal. A wonderful start that makes you immediately want more.”-Greg Rucka, LAZARUS

“No question, a large part of the emotional success of the book is due to artist Dustin Nguyen, whose familiar pencils punctuated with watercolor finishes lend a stunning wash to the entire world of Descender and its occupants. . . . 
A remarkably subtle beginning to what is clearly going to be Image Comics’ next great space epic, Descender #1 has everything you need to get hooked — political intrigue, social unrest, planet-level danger, and, most importantly, a boy with his dog. If you’ve been a fan of Lemire and Nguyen’s work, you won’t need any convincing of Descender’s greatness. And if you haven’t had the pleasure yet, there’s no better place to start.”-COMICOSITY.COM

“I love @JeffLemire. I love @duss005. But believe me when I say Descender #1 is the best I've seen from both. This is a 5 star book!”--Mark Millar, KICK ASS

"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 (planet-sized killer robots, for one). I can't wait to see where it goes."-- Charles Soule (LETTER 44)

“DESCENDER dazzles. . .One hell of a creator-owned debut by Nguyen, who looks like he’s on the verge of taking his art to another level by taking it in a different direction. You won’t want to miss this comic, folks..”--MULTIVERSITY

“The real deal.”--Joshua Hale Fialkov (THE BUNKER)

“Bloody hell, @JeffLemire and @duss005's DESCENDER looks fantastic... “--Declan Shalvey

Really really good.”--COMICVINE

“INSANELY good.”--Ray Fawkes

There's a lot of imagination in this book.”--CBR

“When considered within comics culture, it’s easy enough to see in Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s DESCENDER the strands of creative DNA that reach back to classics like Tezuka’s THE MIGHTY ATOM or Urasawa’s PLUTO. But when considered within the broader context of popular culture, Lemire’s writing and Nguyen’s art usher us into the presence of a work every bit as powerful as 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY or ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN.” —Dr. Shathley Q, PopMatters Comics Editor.
