Descender, Vol. 2 By Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen

Robots fascinate me and this series is intriguing.  TIM-21 has been taken captive by a group of robots and he has been introduced to TIM-22.  The robot leader tells him they are brothers.  Since robots don't usually have much of an emotional side, that doesn't seem to matter much.

Image Comics allowed me to read an ebook of this compilation for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.  If you haven't read Volume 1, buy them both.

TIM-21 is enjoying the robot station and the interaction with his "brother".  His companions are pretty sure they will be eliminated because they have human in them and the robots don't like anyone who is carbon based.

Andy, TIM-21's long lost brother is searching for him.  His robot pet dog can help with the hunt.  How they are going to accomplish recovery when it's only two of them and a whole world of robots?

In the meantime, TIM-22 is getting irritated because his robot dad is so taken with TIM-21.  Even if he's relatively unemotional, he can still get jealous.  And that's a very dangerous thing.

I'll be watching for the next trade paperback.  I've grown a bit attached to TIM-21.
