Mass Effect: Foundation #3 is supposed to be the story of a great assassin working for Cerberus, but we’re treated along the way to a few old friends, like Wrex, and in this issue, Ashley Williams.

I love the classic BioWare storytelling, the strong female characters, and the bloody fight scenes. The art is still meh, but the story is so good that I don’t really care.

I don’t want this series to end.

Check out my review of ME: Foundation issues 1 and 2!

Plot

The loss of the human colony Eden Prime was the first in a series of catastrophes to mark the return of the Reapers—a race of sentient AI that would threaten all life in the galaxy. Now, in her own words, Gunnery Chief Ashley Williams reveals what she saw.

I was rather surprised when I learned about Mass Effect: Foundation. We had multiple comic series pop up in anticipation of and during Mass Effect 3, but the next Mass Effect game isn’t expected for quite a while. I must admit, I’m thrilled at the chance to enter the world again!

Mass Effect: Foundation #1 kicks off with lead Mass Effect writer Mac Walters at the helm of a new series. The writing has those delicious twists and tough questions that we know and love from BioWare.

As for the art, the cover looks really different to me…not sure why, but it has a much softer feel than the past covers. The art on the pages is fairly standard. I was aggravated, as usual, by the giant breasts and skinny arms of the lead female, but that’s pretty much a given in most comics. They can’t all be Amalas!

Overall, I recommend this series to fans of Mass Effect, because the story is pure BioWare (so far), and I can’t wait to see whether we’re following a protagonist or an antagonist female lead!

Plot

Mass Effect: Foundation starts with a bang, introducing readers to an enigmatic “agent” and revealing the story of her time spent on the violent mining colony of Themis.
