    ?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 still like this series, but this volume felt like one big set up for the one big thing that happens at the end. Which will push the story forward in the next one, but I guess I was bored with the set up stuff. Glad we'll be moving on to the next thing later. ...

    It's a sweet feeling when you discover a great new series. It's bitter when you catch up to the authors output so quickly and suddenly must wait for more. ...

    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...

    This has been my favorite in the series so far. The plot is all coming together and the art is fantastic! The next issue will be a big one so I don?t want to spoil anything!! ...

    Because I know I'm at intense risk of repeating myself as I continue to review volumes of Descender, I'll try to eke out some new thoughts here and there but, before I say any of that, I'm just going to spout the usual, just in case this is the first volume of Descender any of my follo...

    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 ...

    Whoo hoo! Can't wait to read the finish. The watercolors are lovely. And the character of Driller is great. ...

    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. ...

    Still one of my top favorites. Like other volumes this is very art driven with less dialogue then other series and you can really blast though a book rather quickly. It leaves you wanting more which can be good and bad. Anyways lots of development in volume 5, the title is a bit of a s...

    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...

    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...

    The war is upon us, there is more death and pain, and somehow, the major developments are thrown into shadow by the moments of sheer pathos between the chief protagonists. The storytelling and art continue to be excellent, and when read very quickly like this, all five volumes present ...

    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...

    "Rise of the Robots" is a somewhat uncomfortably plotted volume of Descender. On the one hand we have the eponymous "Rise of the Robots", which is a big-scale, epic story about the robots, well, rising. On the other hand we have a very decompressed story on Mata about several of our ma...

    It's dire. A good moment from Quon. I really wonder where this story is going. Can humans really compete against robots, or are we going to go extinct? ...

    I love this series. The art is unique and the story is engaging and never stale. It?s funny, it?s heartbreaking, and it?s full of twists and turns. I will now patiently wait six months for vol 6 ...

    Sigh... The only reason I?m sticking this one out is for Dustin Nguyen?s amazing artwork, but I?m really losing my patience here. I love Jeff Lmire?s writing when he also draws his own stuff, but it feels like he seriously gives up on the things he just scripts, especially as t...

    By law all robot comics must have a sequence where a robot goes berserk and shouts "KILL-ALL-HUMES!". It's always satisfying and this is no exception. Major story developments in this volume of Descender but also a fair bit of padding out the various scrapes the cast have got themselve...

    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...

    ¿Qué tiene esta historia que todos sus giros argumentales me gustan y me emocionan? Qué pedazo "cliffhanger" han dejado para el final del capítulo 26. Ahora tocará esperar por los siguientes capítulos. La espera se me va hacer muy larga, será eterna. ...

    Things are really getting intense. Volume 5 of descender is another great addition by Jeff Lemire. 4 stars. ...

    Short compared to the other volumes and moves the plot along, but nothing particularly revelatory compared to the ones before. Nor did it have much to say that was different than other stories. Hopefully the final volume has more substance to it. ...
