Most physicists and mathe-. Descender continues to be a shockingly great sci-fi comic as Orbital Mechanics ratchets up the tension and the overall sympathy the reader feels for the characters. All of them. I thought the pacing was excellent, especially since this was a few volumes into the story. Oh, and if you thought the cliffhanger from the last volume was good, you'll love the twist Lemire puts on its resolution in /5.
