Descender is a series of science fiction graphic novels. In the first volume we meet the characters, in particular Tim-21, a child-like robot who wakes up after 10 years and finds everyone on his mining planet has been destroyed. He is searching for his real boy companion and as he doesn’t find his body, he is hopeful that Andy is still alive. 10 years ago the galaxy was attacked by humongous robots and life was forever changed. Humans have turned against robots and have been destroying them, but there is great fear that the giant robots, called Harvesters, will return. When it is discovered that one small child robot, Tim-21, could be the key to the genetic code of the giant robots, the hunt is on.

While the search and retrieval of Tim goes on, a number of characters are introduced and an intriguing story is being launched. There are plenty of secrets that future volumes will be able to uncover, and each character comes with an interesting back-story. The artwork is excellent and Jeff Lemire is an author that can be counted on to infuse plenty of heart and soul into the story. With a new universe to discover, interesting characters to meet and an exciting and compelling story to follow, Descender is off to a great start. ( )

Wow. I really loved this. Totally compelling characters and story, intriguing backstory woven seamlessly in the narrative and gorgeous artwork. Call me a definite fan. ( )

Love the art, and love a story with robots/AI in it. That's pretty much all I need, but I also love the character design and I'm super intrigued with the ending. So, I have book 2 on hold. ( )

Do you remember the film AI? Yeah. I loved that, too.

What if I could get all the delicious goodies from that film and mix it with a complex galactic empire beset by huge robots called Harvesters that are a lot larger than the Death Star?

Oh yeah. Ohhhh yeah.

But don't stop there! Make sure your heroes are full of pathos and mythic qualities, mix in some good storytelling and fantastic art... and you've got this.

I love SF, but THIS is why I love SF.

Just how many factions, be it aliens, robot haters, robot sympathizers, and robots are we dealing with, here? I'm gonna start loving this series. My only complaint is in waiting for more to come out! ( )

Mannnn, so good.

I've only recently gotten into non-manga comics, and I picked up volumes 1-4 of Descender before even reading any of the first volume, because the art (from flipping through) and plot summary had already pulled me in. I've read the first two, but I'm hesitant to read on because then I'll have to waiiiiitttt!

There are a lot of diverse characters, and not just because some are aliens/robots/etc. Tim-21 is adorable, and his robotic intelligence in a small boy's body reminds me of Presea from Tales of Symphonia. He's emotional, and it's funny when other characters are telling him to lower his emotion levels and he's just like, "This is how I was programmed! I can't help it!" Driller and his "DRILLER IS KILLER" provides some comic relief, and his being protective of other, smaller bots is endearing. Telsa is your somewhat-stereotypical tough military type, but I like her. Dr. Quon is a pretty cowardly character, so he's not a favorite, but he provides balance.

The art is so coooool. I love the watercolor and how some of the edges are a little rough, or there's a bit of white outline here and there. I feel like it really suits the story because of how "rough" so many of the locations and characters are. Sometimes, when characters are a bit further into the background, their features are kind of lost, or dialogue has to tell you who it is because it's several figures kind of blurred together, but it doesn't really bother me or detract from the story--just one of the "issues" that comes with the watercolor medium.

One thing that does kind of bother me--and this is something I've noticed in a lot of American/non-Japanese art--is how some characters tend to look way older than they are. One character is a kid in the beginning (like maybe 10-12), and then 10 years later, here he is mentioning an ex-wife and looking like he's 35 (and he wasn't doing crack as far as I can tell). I had guessed at who he was, but I wasn't sure until it was actually stated, because he didn't look at all his age. I'm not worried about whether they're attractive, but just the fact that no one ever seems to look like they're 20-25 when they are. Not a big deal, but something I've noticed.

Other reviewers have mentioned how this pulls from or copies other media, but I feel like it's hard NOT to do that when you're working with sci-fi. There aren't a lot of general ideas that haven't already been touched on, but you can still work with those ideas in new ways. But then, as much as I enjoy sci-fi, I'm not all that well-versed in it, so what do I know. ( )
