Mass Effect: Foundation #1Mass Effect: Foundation #1
Written by Mac Walters
Art by Omar Francia
Colored by Michael Atiyeh
Lettered by Michael Heisler
Covers by Benjamin Carré
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: July 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Mass Effect: Foundation #1 is the first of a 13-part series based on the popular science fiction video game franchise, Mass Effect. Written by Mac Walters and illustrated by Omar Francia, the story takes place 22 years before the first game, looking into the past to establish the origin story for what we can assume will be the main character going forward.

The comic has potential but has a few flaws. The story seems a bit forced and the dialogue more suited for a video game than a comic. The art is inconsistent in a way that seems almost detrimental to the flow. It also didn’t help with following the plot and catching all the exposition. There is nothing particularly great about it, and the problems I mentioned aren’t very obvious, but they are when you read it more than once.

It is very blasé and just seems to be in the same vein of the movie-based video games. Most of the issues might be due to trying to cram in so much exposition in so few pages, so it might improve throughout the series. The set up for the main character seems interesting, so it is worth watching the comic progress.
