Descender, Volume 1: Tin Stars Cover Image
By Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen (Artist)
ISBN: 9781632154262
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Image Comics - September 22nd, 2015

This is one of the most exciting graphic novels I have read in a long time. It reminds me of Firefly, Wall-E, AKIRA, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ghost in the Shell all at the same time. Descender is a multi-layered novel with concurrent storylines about cyborgs, transhumans, bounty hunters, pirates, starship captains and robots with commentary on civil war, rebellion and a broken family that is just trying to get back together again. It is fun, but also serious and heartfelt. An amazing work that is original, beautiful and sophisticated. Get this before Hollywood ruins it! – Sam
