Can't wait to order the next ones!

So, to put it simply, the story is not believable, Liara is out-of character, the events are not logical, and the heroes are simply overly invincible.

The art style looked great and the story was very interesting.

I played and loved Mass Effect 1 so much that I bought Mass Effect 2 for full price on the day it was released. I never pay full price. I absolutely loved Mass Effect 2 also, and never really felt like I was missing anything that happened between the two games. However that is basically where this comic falls in the timeline. Actually the events in this comic take place immediately after the events of the opening cut-scene in ME2, just to be precise.

A few people have argued that the Liara T'Soni of this comic does not really mesh with the Liara T'Soni of ME1. As someone who explored the romantic option with Liara in the first game though, I would have to disagree. Here is someone who fought from one end of the galaxy to the other by the side of Commander Shepard, someone who went through heck and back to defeat an overwhelming enemy, someone who fell in love and then lost that love.

What would you do if you found out that that enemy was trying to steal your loved ones remains for some unknown (probably nefarious) reason)? Would you go to any lengths necessary to prevent that from happening? THAT is the Liara T'Soni that we see in this book. And it fits in perfectly with the Liara that we see in ME2. In fact, if you plan on playing (or already have played) the Lair of the Shadow Broker this is a must read. It will really fill in some of the blanks and prepare you for that story.

Playing Mass Effect created an obsession for me. From the music, asthetics, characters, and story it had me hooked from the beginning.

I was really looking forward to this graphic novel. I just want more of the Mass Effect universe. However, after finishing the full series in the graphic novel form, I was very underwhelmed.

The art looks goofy and cartoonish. I don't mind some artistic variation for a comic, but it feels so disconnected from the Mass Effect world.

The biggest issue I had was with the characterizations and dialogue. Since when did Liara become and "shoot first, ask questions later" type? There are cheesy one liners, and each action sequence seems to consist of spying on someone, then jumping them.

Those are antithetical traits to what Mass Effect is all about. The level of mature dialogue and paced action are what felt like a truly mature game experience. This ended up more like Jr High fanfiction. Very disappointing.

The art doesn't exactly portray Liara well, but it is a good comic book indeed. The art is still pretty good, and as a fan of mass effect, I really liked how it matched the story line between mass effect 1 and 2. Moreover, the dark horse edition has all the volumes, so it was a plus!

Very happy that my love of the Mass Effect series got me to hunt down the novels and comics related to the series as a whole! This was a great read and certainly gave a bit more insight to the goings-on in the galaxy pre-Mass Effect 2. It has art that's nice to look at and an interesting and engaging story that will keep you reading until the last page where you'll wish there was more.

This comic tells part of the story of what happened to Shepard's body between the opening movie of Mass Effect 2, and the beginning of the actual game where Shepard first wakes up in the Cerberus facility. It's told from Liara's perspective, and follows the events she described briefly in the main game and more in the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC. You find out how she met Feron, and learn why she hates the Shadow Broker so much.

Keep in mind, this is a comic, and done in comic book style. The art is good, reminiscent of the better Star Wars books published by Dark Horse. The characters and locations look like they are supposed to. Most of the characters are of the games' various alien species, and they look and talk like they do in game.

The writing and story is typical of a comic, it focuses on action and combat. You don't get a huge amount of exposition, so if you're looking for every nuance of why the Collectors and Cerberus were racing for Shepard's body, you won't find that here.

All in all, it's a good comic adaptation of the Mass Effect universe, worth the price if you enjoyed ME2.

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of Bioware's games, but after being thoroughly underwhelmed by David Gaider's debut novelization of the Dragon Age universe, I've largely gone back to my tried and true philosophy of avoiding game tie-ins. I've heard good things about the Mass Effect novels, though. Though skittish about trying this stuff again, I figured that this graphic novel would be a safe bet. I liked it for what it was (a brief aside for existing fans of the games), but I'm hard pressed to find anything else about it to compliment.

The story follows Dr. Liara T'Soni in the aftermath of the Normandy SR2's destruction at the hands of the Collectors. Desperate to find what has become of Commander Shepard, she journeys to the outpost of Omega and falls in with a shady Drell named Feron, whose allegiance seem to shift on the hour. Caught in the middle of a standoff between the elusive Shadow Broker, the human-supremacist organization Cerberus, and the sinister Collectors, Liara struggles to save Shepard's body from the murky schemes that have risen up around it.

This series of comics promises to tell the story hinted at by Liara in Mass Effect 2, and, well, it does that. That, and not much else. Liara meets Feron, throws around a lot of biotic bodyslams, and plucks Shepard from the clutches of the Collectors. To wit, she did everything she said she did in the few lines of dialogue on the subject from the game. I mean, that's not really a bad thing; I wanted that story, and I got it. I was just hoping there was a little bit more to it than that.

There is definitely some extra material in the suddenly saucy rendition of Liara, however. I feel like I shouldn't complain, since Liara has been my Shepard's nerdy blue girlfriend since the first game.
