At last weekend’s Emerald City Comic Con, Mass Effect 3 lead writer Mac Walters revealed that the Mass Effect series would spawn a comic book series. While the Mass Effect saga is no stranger to comic books, previously, it had only been in the form of one-off digital comics or short miniseries.
Now, Mass Effect is getting a full-fledged comic series to be published by Dark Horse that will span at least twelve issues. It will be called Mass Effect: Foundation.
Like the rest of the Mass Effect comics and novels produced, the Foundation series will not focus directly on the exploits of Commander Shepard. Instead, it will focus on the woman in that picture to the left. As of writing, I haven’t gotten around to the Citadel DLC but apparently she plays a part in it.
In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Walters was tight-lipped about who the woman starring in the comic is and even when the series takes place. However, Walters stressed that “foundation” was the key so one would assume that it either takes place before or during the Shepard trilogy. He also hinted that familiar characters may make an appearance in the series.
No release date has officially been announced nor does any evidence of the series exist on Dark Horse’s website but one would have to assume that it will be sooner rather than later.
