Great start to this series. I love this world and this just immediately takes you back. The art is still very unique. It will definitely put some people off.

Familar characters, new characters but also different elements to the world have intrigued me

I'm glad to see more from the Descender, now Ascender series!

So far it looks great, and has a pretty strong starting point. I wish we got to see more of Mila though. (but that's okay, as there's quite a bit of world-building and plot-building to do, considering where we left off in Descender. )

I look forward to the next release!

A sequel to Descender. Instead of giving us more of the same with robots and space fights, this looks to be more focused on magic and fantasy. Interesting way to carry it on, because there are some familiar characters here and references made to Descender. Intrigued enough to want to read more

I’m excited the series is back!

The villain, Mother, is an intriguing character, but the hero, Mila, has some cliche moments. The art is great, and the story’s world is very imaginative. I can’t wait to see what the series has to offer.

I don’t think I’m going to like this as much as I liked Descender but I’m definitely interested to read on. I don’t know if magic is my thing though I’ve never been really able to come around to it fully. Even though I like Fantasy novels.

Issue 1: I don't want to give Issue 1 a rating because it's so short and quick, but I will rate the full volume when it is released.

This didn't answer many questions, but it created them! I'm so excited to be back in this world and continue this story.

This is comic is as good as I remember the Descender series being. The character development is good and the plot is intriguing. I can't wait to read more when it's released as a full graphic novel!

Outstanding as always

I can just get lost in the beauty of the visuals and then the story just brings back to the page
