Lemire And Nguyen’s Ascender #1 Sells Out With Second Printing On The Way

by Olly MacNamee

Another new Image comic and another sell out. This time it’s Ascender #1, the sequel to Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s sci-fi series, Descender. With no need to catch up on what came before, Descender is being touted as a great jumping on point for new readers.

Set ten years after the conclusion of Descender, in Ascender the machines have gone away, and in their absence magic has reclaimed the universe. Now one girl must embark on an epic quest to find robotkind and its fabled boy messiah, TIM-21, before it’s too late…

Ascender #1, second printing  will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, May 22. But, if you re going to your LCBS this weekend, maybe look to pick any stray first printings there may still be out there.
