Descender, Volume 3: Singularities (Descender #3) by Jeff Lemire (Writer), Dustin Nguyen (Artist)

Robots always draw me into a story.  In this tale, robots are feared.  There was an uprising long ago and now humans consider them dangerous and of use only as scrap.  One is just a little boy who lived a quiet life in his past but now has no home and no friends...

Image Comics shared this book with me for a review (thank you).  It has been published now and you can get a copy.  I read an earlier book in this series and was intrigued to see what the author had done next.  It was different and it was good.

Mr. Lemire takes us back to the beginning.  You get back stories on all the main characters.  I would have thought this would be the first in the series but it's still an interesting read even at this point.  

Since I had read some of the earlier work, I knew the characters.  How they turned into the people they did was fascinating.  Two of them had even been married in the past and that was a new revelation.  Reading these pieces of the past made things fit together better.  Most unknowns were explained.  Now where the story is going to go from here is only known to Mr. Lemire.  I'll be watching for the next story...
