I really enjoyed Mass Effect Foundation #1, so I could barely wait to read the second entry in the newest Mass Effect comic series.
First, I’d like to say how refreshing it is to see a black (or black-featured…the ME universe is clear that a blending happened in the human race) female lead, especially since that lead’s gender and color are (so far) non-issues in the series and universe.
Second, the writing continues to be enjoyable, really shining in character interactions. This issue isn’t as twisty as issue #1, but watching characters interact with each other had that priceless mix of humor and danger that the games have.
I’m still not a big fan of the art style. People look a little deformed to me. Krogans, like Urdnot Wrex, look perfect though.
Urdnot Wrex—one of the most dangerous mercenaries in the galaxy—crosses paths with a mysterious secret agent in this explosive adventure!
