Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Mass Effect Foundation #7 Review

Posted on Monday, January 13 @ 12:22:45 Eastern by Keri_Honea
Everyone's half-naked biotic nut job, Jack, is most likely the most powerful human biotic, if not the most powerful biotic, period. I have a feeling she would have given an Asari Justicar a run for her money. So how did someone so powerful get captured by the Blue Suns and held in their cryo-prison? Mass Effect Foundation #7 unveils exactly how that went down, and raises more questions about the Illusive Man's part in her whole ordeal.

The story begins with Jack doing what she does best—going on a rampage through a Cerberus facility. She's found another one of Cerberus' biotic experiment institutions that happens to house one of the doctors who experimented on her when she was Subject Zero. Of course the Illusive Man isn't going to take the destruction of one of his bases lying down, so he sends Kai-Leng and Rasa out to capture the perpetrator. He makes it seem to them that he has no idea who this person is, and yet, right before sending out his attack dogs, he speaks to Jack personally through his hologram communicator.

While the issue shows plenty of Jack's anger management issues, it also depicts her sensitive side to other biotic kids seen in Mass Effect 3. It isn't Shepard who converts Jack from despising everyone; she's always had that little soft spot for other kids who might have been tortured the way she was.

The worst part of this comic is the art, which is extremely unfortunate since this is a comic and not an illustrated book. So much of the artwork looks like it was taken from a kid's sketchbook or perhaps from the artists' quick renditions meant for storyboards. At least when the art took a nose dive, it wasn't a crucial frame on the page, so I never had to worry about missing any subtle details, but it was still disappointing all the same.

Art aside, if you're a Jack fan, you won't want to miss out on her incarceration backstory. Mass Effect Foundation #7 releases on January 22nd in both retail and digital download from Dark Horse.
