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.Read more ›
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.
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.
