Ascender Vol. 2: The Dead Sea
Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen: storytellers
Image Comics, 2020

The previous volume ended with Andy regaining consciousness in the harbor. Out of the frying pan and into the fire: after a magical Healer fixes him, he is put on a prison ship bound for the Vamp Camps. Meanwhile, Telsa, Helda and Mila are on the water, and Mother (the magical leader of the ruling class) is hot on their heels. She is convinced that the appearance of the pet-bot Bandit means that Andy and Mila are important. At the camps Andy reconnects with Mila's mother Effie and manages to get through to her in her vampire state. Significant flashbacks include events during the second Descender attack (nice to see Quon again), Telsa's early adventures with Helda, and Mother's back story with the Mothers (the eternal witch's coven) and how she seized power. And the final big reveal: Driller is back. The story jumps around a lot, but it goes to unexpected places which promise some interesting events in the next installment.
