This is the first comic series I've ever read, and so far it has been wonderful! The story has lots of room to expand, mysteries to explore, and the artwork is something in itself to be loved. Can't wait to see what happens to all the characters!

Descender follows a small robot boy, TIM-21, in a world where humans have inhabited different galaxies. TIM-21 starts out as a companion robot for a young boy on a mining colony; he is shut down for ‘sleep’ one night and then wakes up years later to find that giant, planet-sized robots called Harvesters have killed millions and disappeared for unknown reasons. This created a distrust of robots and AI systems, and led to the culling of all found robots and the outlawing of androids. TIM-21 —aided by his ‘pet-dog’ robot and a huge, violent drill-bot— sets off to find his family from the mining colony. But after TIM connects online, several organizations/sectors discover that this little robot is somehow related to the Harvesters. TIM-21’s creator, Dr. Quon, and a couple of agents must find the boy and study his relation to Harvesters before Scrappers (mercenary robot hunters) destroy him. I really like the pacing and story progression of this book and I tend to have issues with that aspect of many graphic novels so I was glad. The artwork is watercolor-like and I personally think it’s gorgeous. The world and the premise is pretty interesting, I just wish there were more details and more explanations (which I’m sure will happen in the next few books). I adore TIM-21 and the flashbacks of his ‘family’ were heartwarming. I also like Driller (the drill-bot) and some of the other characters, but they weren’t well fleshed out so, overall, I wasn’t much invested in the side characters. All in all, this was a very enjoyable book. It has a great premise and there is so much potential for the sequels. This whole book felt like it was setting up for the REAL story so I’m eager to pick up the next book.

Colourful sci-fi comic collection about the aftermath of an invasion by giant robots After giant robots wipe out billions on a faraway planet, a backlash against all robots ensues. This collection deals with the discovery of the origin of the giant robots through Tim21, a boy robot companion and his inventor, Dr Quon, with dire consequences for all concerned as other parties get involved – for the moment. Well-written and illustrated, it was engaging and interesting. Well worth a look. Volume 2 should be intriguing.
