It is no surprise to those who have read his work that Jeff Lemire is skilled at world-building. What is surprising, however, is how easily and subtly he expands upon the world of Descender even now. While cyborgs are nothing new, Lemire's concept of "The Between" is a unique take on the concept.
The artwork of Dustin Nguyen matches Lemire's scripts, beat for beat. There is a natural grit to Nugeyn's style that is perfectly suited to the grim world of Descender.Even the scenes on brightly-lit, well-cleaned spaceships seem to have a natural darkness to them!
