Comments +

Your new sci-fi obsession is here, and its name is Descender. A brand-new comic book series from the acclaimed team of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen, Descender is a gorgeous, moody story about a future where a lonely robot boy searches for a home in a galaxy that hates and fears him. While comics fans are eagerly awaiting Descender solely based on the strength of its creative team, it’s also a story that those less well-versed in comics might want to check out—Sony recently bought the film rights to Descender, a full month before the first issue even hit stands.
