    ?We have waited too long in the shadows. It is time to rise.? The universe is on the brink of war and the boy bot Tim-21 is at the center of it all in this penultimate volume of this science fiction series in Descender, Volume 5: Rise of the Robots. Some scenes featuring Tim-21 ...

    I was very pleased to see "penultimate chapter" on the back cover because i feared that this was an open-ended series. Now that i know they have a plan for the end, i'm happy to pay to see it ... and then donate the volumes to my local library. ...

    I wasn't super-impressed by the first volume of this series--nice artwork and all, but it seemed little more than a rip-off of A.I. Well, I did eventually come back to it and I've been reading it more closely and with more than a little excitement and enthusiasm ever since. And, wow, d...

    The Robot War is here! Relax. That's not a spoiler, it's in the blurb. The story picks up exactly where it left off in the last issue and keeps a pretty decent level of action going throughout the entire volume. And I'm still (unbelievably) digging this art. A lot happ...

    I'm rounding up because even though some issues in this volume weren't my favorites I just love this series to pieces, plus it ends on a high note. Individual issue reviews: #22 | #23 | #24 | #25 | #26 Total review score: 3.4 ...

    Gosh, it?s almost like Lemire's watercolor illustration just keeps improving with each volume of this tale. So good! Driller is a real killer and still my favorite character in the series. ...

    Wow! The story lines are coming together nicely with more and more build-up before the eruption. The uprising of the robots has begun. Simultaneously, our friends are finally converging on each other with Effie, the Scrapper, Andy and Bandit being with the UGC fleet while Tim-21 ...

    Bullet Review: Beautiful, stunning art. It's so incredible to see these delicate watercolors for a scifi story, but it really works. I really enjoyed this one; not sure if it was because it was better than before (maybe the authors have hit their stride and are getting to telling...

    And we're back to being fun again! :) The uprising has really begun! Tim has bit more agency now and being the chosen one (for the robots) is actually pretty interesting and not lame. :) The promise of a lot of SF action and all-out war is here... at least a bit. I must continue ...

    The art is at its best in this vol. There are some scenes that are so eerie, it was almost hard to look at and others that are so gorgeous, you cant look away. A lot of progress was made in this last volume but it did feel a little slow this time round, only because there's so mu...

    There?s not much to say about this series that I haven?t already said, so here are some bullet points: - The story continues to be kind of trite, but somehow equally compelling. - The pace is *fast*. The setpieces that Lemire has established are coming together. This is the pen...

    La calidad de esta serie de ciencia ficción, en un futuro distópico donde los robots han sido oprimidos por la posibilidad que se rebelen contra los humanos (adiós Tres Leyes de la Robótica) se mantiene constante entre los buenos dibujos de Nguyen y los entretenidos guiones de Lem...

    4.5 Stars This continues to be one of my favourite graphic novel series. This particular volume was incredibly gripping with plenty of story progression. ...

    The stakes get even higher as the Machine Moon, the NGC, and all of the other players in our intergalactic space opera come crashing together in more ways than one as the penultimate chapter of Descender comes to a close. This is a very quick read; that's not a complaint, but you ca...

    Descender is just not clicking for me (but I keep plugging away. Thanks, Sunk Cost Fallacy!) The soft, pretty, watercolor illustration still feels like it's fighting the genocidal science fiction subject matter. And the robots continue to feel not remotely robotic; they're just as s...

    I wasn't totally satisfied with how this volume was constructed - I'm fine with a major character falling off the map until their story can be told in a less piecemeal fashion, rather than being told in fragments - but this is also one of those volumes that's clearly setting up for shi...

    Love Descender vol 1-4 and this is no exception. The artwork is once again beautiful and the stakes just keep on going up. Here we see the beginning of the robot revolt, and I am super excited to follow volume 6 when that comes out too! 4.5*s ...

    Another awesome instalment here! I am sad it is the second to last volume though! It sounds like it will continue after that, but under a different name maybe? We'll find out soon. The art was great, as always. The characters were great, except for Quon, I despise that two faced man,...

    I should only read this series when it is completed because I find these middle volumes to be filled with so much thumb twiddling. I'm sure there's a point to all the shuffling around of characters, but I've totally lost the thread at this point and find it difficult to care. And I ...

    You can feel things are coming to an end soon as stories converge. The robots make their move. Tim-22 is still a murderous little shit, while Tim-21 is the perfect little boy. Lemire keeps the dialogue sparse and let's Nguyen's spare watercolors tell the story. This is a gorgeous littl...

    Re-read: This was such a good volume! It's the beginning of the end and there are dramatic, twisted moments where the artwork shines, even when at times it's so minimalistic. The three main stories are starting to emerge and I'm not sure how everything will end, but I'm enjoying every...

    Obsessed with this series had to read it before work. Has set up the story very well. I guess maybe one more Vol until its completed. Probably one of my favourite series, even if I'm very new to the graphic novel scene. ...

    While my favorite comic right now is Saga, Descender is not far behind. I love the watercolor artwork - so much more accessible than in Low (which I gave up on) and at times beautifully minimalist. The story is split into four or five arcs and is brilliantly told. Tom-22 is one evil du...

    This is the best volume of one of the best comics! What?s it about? Oh gosh, so much has happened in this series now that I don?t know where to begin without spoiling everything. Why it gets 5 stars: The story is still very interesting and it keeps building up. The art is ...

    The War of the Machines! Yes, it?s finally here. And all the main players are showing up on Mata. Ready to blast each other?s head off. Or rip it off, in one particular case. Well, almost all the main players are on Mata. Because Driller is busy having a little dance wi...
