I don't know where to start because this book has so much positive worth to it. The story is great; it has a great continuing of the Dead Space game, preparing you for what to expect in Dead Space 2. The characters are unique. You don't know who will survive till the end of this book, if anyone at all. The story has many twist I didn't see coming. The visual art in this book is great, setting a great feel of dread, darkness and terror. For Dead Space fans who want to expand their knowledge of the Dead Space universe, those new to the series will not want to pass this up and those who just enjoy a great horror read - this is the book to buy.

I'm a huge Dead Space fanboy, so I picked this up from my local comic shop yesterday for 50% off. I really wanted to like it, and there's a few things that really drag it down.

The art is pretty polarizing. On the one hand it's very interesting stylistically and I think it conveys the dark atmosphere of the Dead Space franchise very well. The tone is right and the monsters look sufficiently horrific and disturbing. On its own, independent of all other factors, the art is really cool and consistently interesting to look at.
However, the art really doesn't do the storytelling any favors. Even with the "cast of characters" on the first page I could barely tell which characters were which, or what was going on half the time. I couldn't always tell if characters were getting killed, or what they were supposed to be doing, and sometimes the art transitions were really abrupt to the point that it killed some of the impact of what was supposed to be happening. To use an analogy, it would be like showing a character being confronted by a bad guy with a gun, and then the immediately next panel is the character dead on the ground of an apparent gunshot wound but with no panel showing that the gun went off. It's a little awkward and breaks up the flow of the story.

Speaking of the story, the other major problem with Salvage is that the plot is largely inconsequential. By the end of the story you realize that nothing actually happened and no new revelations were made. The initial setup is compelling enough, but by the end all that's actually happened is that most of the characters are dead.

Format: Kindle Edition
Note: This is for the first printing of the paperback, not the Kindle.

Dead Space Salvage is a graphic novel that I was very excited about. I've been following the Dead Space story since the Templesmith comics leading up to the release of the first game. I knew this book would be artistically different, but I REALLY loved the cover and it's Dead Space.

First let's go over the artwork. This is what makes this review difficult. I absolutely love Christopher Shy's artwork. Each panel is fantastically rendered and I really appreciate his style of implied form and realism through a slightly blurred lens. Each panel stands out on its own as a work of art. However, while Shy is incredibly talented, his artwork does not translate well to sequential art. Realism through a blurred lens is fantastic if it's a 24x24 print I'm hanging on my wall that I can spend all the time in the world examining the details, appreciating the composition and noticing the little touches hidden here and there. When you're using it to tell me a story, it tends to break up the experience too much. I will list issues to support my point below.

-Characters are not easily differentiated. Because of Sky's mostly monochromatic color palette and aversion to hard edges, key members of the story are easily confused. Generally it's good practice in sequential art to give each character a unique visual trait to allow the reader to easily identify them because each bit of the dialogue isn't prefaced with John said,. The only characters that stood out were the two females because one had flaming red hair and the other did not.

-Shy's style works when you know what real life creatures and objects his paintings represent.

This is without a doubt one of the best stories I've read in years. I was thrilled! The dialogue was excellent. Antony Johnston is truly a great writer. One of the best in the business. And Christopher Shy's artwork just knocked me out. I like the Dead Space franchise, but this is a great story in it's own right. A genuine creepfest if ever there was one. Whether you like Dead Space or not, you should check this out. This was a thrill ride from start to finish. Bravo!

The first thing I noticed about the book was the quality of the materials used. The artwork on both the cover and throughout was well done and really fit the atmosphere of Dead Space. The story was also enjoyable however there were a couple of times that I had some trouble following the story and had to re-read a bit. There were also some nit-picky issues that I will not mention in detail here but they are far from deal breakers. As a Dead Space fan I really enjoyed it and found it to be a nice addition to the Dead Space storyline, filling in the period of time between Dead Space and its sequel.
