"Ascender #1" Headed To Second Printing
Apr 25, 2019
The all-new fantasy series ASCENDER—from New York Times bestselling writer Jeff Lemire (Gideon Falls, Sweet Tooth, The Underwater Welder, Black Hammer) and artist Dustin Nguyen (Batman: Little Gotham)—is immediately being rushed back to print to keep up with customer demand.
This new adventure from the powerhouse creative team behind the bestselling, award-winning Descender, provides readers with the perfect jumping on point and requires no knowledge of the previous Descender series.
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…
The Descender series launched in 2015 to massive critical acclaim. The series was recognized as an NPR “Best Book of the Year” in 2015, was listed four years in a row by the American Booksellers’ Association’s Young Adult Library Services Association’s “Great Graphic Novels for Teens” round-up, and made Newsweek’s “Best Comics Books of 2018” round-up.
Ascender #1, second printing (JAN199358) will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, May 22.
