Comic Review: Mass Effect: Foundation #8 – Thane!

Check out my other reviews of ME: Foundation.

Do you…do you see the cover of Mass Effect: Foundation #8? Do you see that sexy, sexy cover? Garrus is all right, and I know you other ladies love him, but Thane was my one true video game love interest. Seeing him on the cover actually gave me a bit of feels. Especially with the anticipation that Rasa, herself a master assassin, would dance with one of the deadliest men in the universe.

But he’s in exactly one page of this issue. This cover is a total lie. Is it wrong that I feel cheated? I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping he’ll make another appearance in issue nine.

Other than that, this time around the pacing was great, the threat felt real, and the art was quite interesting, with lots of tight face shots.

ME: Foundation continues to be a solid series, with only two low-points, so I look forward to learning even more about the events during Shepard’s death.


“Disgraced after the failure of her most recent mission, Cerberus agent Rasa receives a chance at redemption from the Illusive Man. But is it absolution she will find at the hands of the assassin Thane Krios—or damnation?”
