4/5⭐ Ooh, well I am intrigued. The pacing is perfect, including how new ideas/characters/traits are unveiled. The characters are compelling, the action engaging, the universe complex. Can't wait to continue with the next volume. #projectnew #TIABchallenge

Aimeesue @vivastory For sure! I wasn‘t a huge reader of graphic novels pre-Hoopla, but I‘ve been making up for that, 8DLs /month at a time! And I gotta say, the art in Desender is simply gorgeous! 5mo

I just finished all volumes of the series and oh man was it amazing! The story captivated me from the start but most of all it was the art, it‘s water color style and it‘s so pleasing to the eye. I am excited to see where the story goes in 2019. If you interested in robots vs humans living in space this is the one you need to read!

Yet another masterpiece by Jeff Lemire. This story follows Tim-21, an android companion boy, in the aftermath of a galactic robot genocide.(gigantic celestial robots wiped out the majority of sentient life on multiple planets) Now being an android is a crime against humanity, and cause for immediate termination. But what really is humanity? How can Tim-21 fit in this world? And what part will he play in the robot revolution? Read and see.😊

JazzFeathers Can't say l'm a reader of SF, but this one sounds really interesting and thought-provoking 13mo

I kind of liked the beginning, then really enjoyed the end. And the art is really gorgeous. I'm pretty sure it's largely done with water colors, and it was very effective. It was interesting to juxtapose the dreamy illustrations with the strong science fiction themes. I'm interested to read more!

Reminds me quite a bit of Neuvel‘s Sleeping Giants which is why I couldn‘t give it five stars. I love the characters and the artwork. I will definitely be continuing on with the series, just hoping that it becomes more original as it goes on. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was really excited to start this series, I'd heard a lot of good things about it & maybe my expectations were too high going in but it felt a lil bit flat to me. I like the whole concept of the series & it's got some really good characters. The cliffhanger at the end was 👌🏼 but I wasn't wowed. It didn't make me want to rush off & pick up Vol.2. I'll probably pick up Vol.2 to see how the story continues & to see if I'm just more than piqued.

If you want to graphic novel with superheroes, do not read this book. If you want to read a beautifully drawn epic space story where characters struggle to find truth about themselves and the world they live in, read this book. Thank you Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to pick this one up, but it's been on my shelf for over a year now. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Past Lacey, don't be a fool -- read it sooner before the Harvesters come!

This sci-fi comic tells of life after an apocalyptic visit by giant robots destroys billions of lives in a Galactic Federation. One child's robotic companion may hold the answers -- but will the good guys get it or the bad guys? And who's who, anyway?!??
