I Need More Bandit and Driller - Descenders Vol. 2 Review
AUTHOR: Jeff Lemire & Dustin Nguyen
PUBLISHER: Image Comics
PUBLISHING DATE: May 4, 2016
FROM GOODREADS: Young robot boy TIM-21 and his companions struggle to stay alive in a universe where all the androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet.
MY THOUGHTS: This is a great continuation to Vol. 1 and I'm really enjoying this science fiction tale. TIM-21 and TIM-22 escape with Telsa and Dr. Quon to Hardwire, except they are forced to leave Driller and Bandit which just happen to be my two favorite characters. TIM-21 still just wants to find Andy and the reader finally gets to meet Andy, who once he learns TIM-21 is still alive, starts his search for him with the some help from Bandit and Driller, who he rescues. This volume also introduces the reader briefly to Andy's ex-wife who is an interesting character to say the least.
The artwork continues to be great and in this volume, some of the panels are done with a texture which resembles watercolor paper which is a really nice effect. I have to admit I enjoyed Volume 1 a tad more than this one but it's still a strong series and I plan on continuing on with it as soon as I can locate the next volume at my local library.
RATING: 3 PAWS
