Dead Space stories usually leave me wanting more, but this one left wanting WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more! Don't believe the hype from the other reviewers. This book WILL NOT make you whole. And how could it? It wasn't whole itself!
Loved how all new characters from Dead Space 3 were in this book, helped explain a lot of the events that occour in the game.
The only issue i had is with the spine of the book, it looks like its going tear whenever i open the book, thankfully thats just how it looks, no actual damage, yet anyways.
This book does a very good job flowing the events to meet that of the video game story. Ian Edginton keeps the consistency between the writing for the game and this graphic novel to be fluid and the story's a bit predictable but fits in well with explaining many of the things that went unexplained in the game and even went further into detail about events mentioned in the game. Playing the game is crucial to fully enjoying the graphic novel but not required. However, my big complaint here, as with the other Dead Space-related graphic novels, is the art. Christopher Shy's art does not do this graphic novel justice at all. Dead Space, at least in my opinion, is about the gruesome details and the disgusting artistic approach that just makes you want to vomit and at the same time, scare the crap out of you. However, what you have here is a bunch of vague images with no real sense of what's going on or what the crew is being attacked by. You're encased more in confusion than fear and the images aren't detailed at all. On top of that, the speech bubbles are just text with a crude line sometimes drawn to the character speaking which adds much more confusion. To top it off, it contains several grammatical errors that you can catch in a single read-through.
Overall, it's a wonderful idea to expand on the video game and the Dead Space universe but I think the series needs an artist who can really capture the feel of the game instead of frustrate the reader. While some of the panels are neat to look at, sadly it's only a handful and the only other great ones are large shots of the environment with all the pretty colors. Otherwise, it's a good read if you can get past all that.
