Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen's Image Comics series Descender will travel back to the past for its next story arc. Issue 27 kicks off "Old Worlds," which peels back the curtain on the secret history of the Harvesters, and Nguyen's cover for the comic's February-arriving chapter offers a glimpse at Tim-21's creation at the hands of Dr. Jin Quon.
Along with the new story arc finally revealing secrets introduced in the first issue, each issue will have a "Little Robot" variant cover by Nguyen.
