Mass Effect Foundation #3 Review
Posted on Monday, September 23 @ 13:15:55 PST by Keri_HoneaMass Effect: Foundation #3 releases from Dark Horse on September 25th, and this time, Forrest Gump, a/k/a Rasa, treats us to her presence/involvement with the slaughter at Eden Prime. Saren's massacre at Eden Prime was the catalyst for Shepard's epic quest, and considering it involves non-human races killing other humans and becoming more powerful, of course the Illusive Man and Cerberus are going to be interested in what really happened.
At least this time, Mac Walters and crew don't expect readers to believe that Rasa or even Kai Leng were present at Eden Prime as witnesses and survivors. Instead, the Illusive Man has sent them to find out what happened to the colony and the soliders sent to rescue them after they uncovered the Prothean beacon. Kai Leng tried his hand at one survivor from the attack, and Rasa conveniently found Ashley Williams walking through the Presidium with Kaidan Alenko. It's here that Rasa cajoles Ashley into giving her account of what happened.
While Mass Effect fans have undoubtedly put two-and-two together from playing the game, the comic's rendition of the story solidifies the tale, and it even provides some interesting backstory into Ashley's past as a soldier. I was never a fan of Ashley's, but I still greatly enjoyed reading and seeing what happened to her team at Eden Prime. The image of the Reaper Sovereign attacking sent chills down my legs, much as it did the first time I saw a Reaper while playing the games.
I'm also very curious where Rasa and Kai Leng will pop up next in the lore of the first Mass Effect game. Reading these first three comics has made me really want to play the first game again, and I probably would if it weren't for the damn Mako.
Look for the third issue of the groundwork for Mass Effect on September 25th, both physical and digital copies.
