FIRST LOOK: Image does A.I. in Descender

January 16th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Image goes for the AI vibe with their latest title.

“Descender has huge set pieces, big adventure and lots of twists. It’s a sprawling space epic, and the biggest story I’ve ever tackled. But at it’s heart, Descender is also a small story. The story of TIM-21, a young robot torn from his home and adrift in a galaxy that hates and fears him. It’s this dynamic between the epic and the intimate that I think will make readers fall for Descender. And if that wasn’t enough, Dustin Nguyen is doing the artwork of his career. I couldn’t be more excited to launch Descender in March.”–Jeff Lemire

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
