New York Times bestselling writer Jeff Lemire (SWEET TOOTH, TRILLIUM, PLUTONA) and New York Times bestselling artist Dustin Nguyen (MANIFEST ETERNITY, BATGIRL) will launch the second story arc of the critically acclaimed series DESCENDER in November.

Previously in DESCENDER, readers met the young robot boy TIM-21 and his companions as they struggled in a universe where androids are outlawed and the skies are all but safe from bounty hunters and other thugs.

 

In DESCENDER #7, a mysterious figure from TIM-21’s past emerges and sends shockwaves through the galaxy.

“Arc 2 is called MACHINE MOON, and the title itself is a bit of a hint. We will see the hidden home world of the HARDWIRE, the robot resistance. More specifically, Tim-21, Telsa, Quon, and the gang will be brought there. But not all of TIM’s companions will make it that far,” said Lemire. “We will also delve deeper into the origin of TIM-22 and what makes him and TIM-21 unique from one another and what their existence means to one another and to the larger mystery. And on top of that we will introduce a MAJOR new character. One I am very excited about. One with links to TIM-21’s past and one who will change the course of the series completely.”
