The story is also pretty weak it follows a group of illegal miners who stumble upon the Ishimura and even absent the marker the crew turns into necros and everyone dies but one person. It also adds obligatory earth gov/Unitologist subplots which go nowhere and just add more questions.
So, this rare TPB is a prequel to the Dead Space game starring Isaac and basically shows how the marker brings forth an alien virus that infects everyone and quickly takes over. It doesn't really shed any light as to how the physical manifestations find their way onto the ship or how they grow so abnormally fast but it does show it from beginning to gory end. It was a great read and the art, although some don't like it, was very unique. The coloring was based on where the scene was taking place (so it was easy to spot scene transitions) and it was dark and, when in a chaotic setting, blurry just to make things more tense. The writing was very typical of a sci-fi movie but was decent nonetheless. Overall, I really enjoyed it and it's a really fun read if you've played Dead Space at all! I highly recommend it if you can find it under $100!
I love comics.
And i really really like this book over all.
But dammit, the spine is HORRENDOUS. Right after just going through it the first time there were some pages that came right out, not ripped or anything, just the spine let go of them. No real excuses for that.
This may just be a problem with mine, but i suggest to be cacious with this if you want to keep your books as mint as possible.
So, this little graphic novel takes place after the Dead Space game (and even includes a few teaser pictures for Dead Space 2!) and the story revolves around some space pirates and the super-secret organization called the Oracles. I found the inclusion of the Oracles a really neat part of the story as they are a "ghost" organization and they have special, unknown powers that allow them to kill humans with mere thought and they utilize special beam weapons that obliterate the necromorphs in a single shot. Also, their ship is a stealth ship with technology Stefan has never seen before. It's a conspirator-type thing that goes well with the Dead Space story. The space pirate characters are a varied bunch but I could care less about them by the end of the story. The art is very dark and blurry but adds to the feel of the horror graphic novel. However, a lot of the pictures are re-used and it shows a sign of laziness to the artists. Also, there are no speech bubbles. It's just a poorly drawn line connecting dialogue to a character and some of the dialogue is in different colors to differentiate between characters. Also, the story gets a tad bit hard to follow at times but overall was an enjoyable read. Seeing a giant Hivemind was scary (if you've played the game especially) and the story really picks up in the end. Overall, it's a decent read after playing the game.
