Format: Paperback
This Evolution series is a great addition to the Mass Effect Universe. It gives a much needed backstory on Jack Harper, who eventually becomes the Illusive Man, leader of the human organization, Cerberus. I enjoyed this series and recommend it to any Mass Effect fan that wants to delve a little deeper into the Illusive Man's past.

I am a self confessed Mass Effect superfan. i have loved it from the moment I started the first game through the 5+ complete playthroughs I have done of the trilogy. The story, characters, sound, environments, and action were top notch. There are moments in this game, especially of those with strong ties to the characters, that have an emotional impact unlike anything I have played in gaming. With the added DLC that has come out, and the over 500 hours I have gotten out of the multi player, this title is very well worth the cost and addition to your library and will flesh out the storyline and background of The Illusive Man's origin and actions to what drives him and answers many of the questions and raises more about this shady character. Well written with good pencils, a must for any fan or anyone wanting more information on the lore behind the game.

I really enjoy the Mass Effect Universe, so naturally I had to read this. It definitely expands on the universe without treading too much on the game's stories. It's not the most in-depth, but still a fun read to further the fiction.

If you love the game and love it for the story, then all the back stories are just icing on the cake. If you are looking for a great graphic novel then this isn't it. I'm not disappointed in the purchase at all, but it isn't something I feel completed the story from the game in any way. If characters from this story end up popping up in Mass Effect 3 then I stand corrected, but as of now this doesn't fill in any gaps or shed any new light on anything. It is more of a history lesson on the Illusive Man's distant past without filling you in on how he became who he is in the current story told in the games.

As a fan of the game and the story being told, it wasn't a disappointment in the sense that it wasn't as though I read it and felt I wasted my time. But it also wasn't what I was expecting either.

I'm a big mass effect fan so I wanted to know more about the ME universe so I started reading the comics. It is drawn really good with great action and drama that gives you that urge to turn the page!

Short Comic, only takes about an hour to read cover to cover. Gives you insight into the making of the "Illusive Man", and while the story procedes slowly to start (giving you insight into the Illusive man), at the very ends it ties everything together (a little bit too quickly). So in the end you know a little bit more about the Illusive Man but you DO NOT know his full story (you know how/what makes him the Illusive Man but not really how he got where he is). Its hard to describe without giving anything away. Good read if you are a Mass Effect fan.

A fun edition to the Mass Effect world. It was good seeing how the Illusive Man came to be. This is probably the most significant graphic novel in the series, where the others didn't add much (though they were pretty).

I highly recommend this comic book series. It tells the story of the illusive man before he became the illusive man and the time that humans met other species. I won't spoil it, but it is well written and drawn. Also, it is a lot better to get the dark horse version that has all the 4 issues in one book. Great prices at amazon!
