    Default Sould I check out Descender?

    With the sequel coming out in April, I was thinking about reading the original comics?

    Absolutely!! I dropped it after issue #16 (which turns out to be the halfway point) due to budget, but with the aim of one day reading everything to follow. Ascender being announced has given me a deadline for that now!! What I read of Descender was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it!!
    Gideon Falls, Immortal Hulk, The Wicked + The Divine, Die, Batman, Paper Girls, Saga, The Walking Dead, Black Hammer, Man-Eaters, Outcast, Daredevil, Amazing Spider-Man, The Empty Man, She Could Fly, B.P.R.D., Ice Cream Man, Hex Wives, Sparrowhawk, Oblivion Song, Redlands, Umbrella Academy, Monstress, The Seeds, Little Bird

    It's a gorgeous book, although I suppose that goes for any Dustin Nguyen-drawn book really. Keep in mind Descender skews much more sci-fi, while the upcoming sequel Ascender will lean more into fantasy territory. I doubt it'll be necessary to know the backstory from Descender, but they'll probably put in a lot of fun in-jokes and references for long-time readers if that interests you.

    100% yes. I'm a HUGE Mass Effect fan, and this book really scratches that itch.
    On your left, 'till the end of the line.
    Maximum effort.

    I just read the first issue of Ascender, and if Descender is even half as good it'll be worth reading!
