We have James Vega and a flashback into the time he joined the marines in his youth. This is essential for Vega because he was only introduced in ME3 and his development during the game was minimal at best so he never really made his mark with the player base. This "origin" story gives him more personality, more "history" and makes us sympathize with him like the game never did. We get to see his father and uncle and get a few pages on earth, in San Diego. His story does seem to end a bit too soon but its entertaining and succeeds in building Vega and giving him more of a "motivation" than being just a guy that shoots guns and looks good. Were there other characters I wish had taken his spot? Sure, after getting his own anime movie, it seems Bioware is somewhat desperate for people to care about Vega but it was still an ok story. Still, a Kasumi "origin" would have been so cool! Oh well...
Moving on, the next three stories are all about fan favorites.
Tali is here, on her pilgrimage and we get to see her journey before the original ME and how she acquired the info about Saren which is the reason she joins Shepard. This is as cool as it gets! As a fan this is pure lore heaven right here. Unfortunately, for the first time in ME comics, I found the art "just not right". The characters, especially Tali are drawn close enough to the games but the proportions just seem off and the style simply doesn't work. Its a shame but not enough to spoil a fantastic and lore heavy adventure.
Then we get the best of the bunch! Garrus, the coolest turian of the galaxy!Read more ›
Next, we have Tali's Pilgrimage lead up story. I'm a fan of Tali and this is one of my favourite of the four stories, BUT, I do wish the artwork had been done by one of the artists who had worked on one of the other stories as artistically this is the worst. The proportions of the figures seem a little 'off', and its a little more stylised than some of the artwork. That's just my choice though.
Then we have Garrus with a backstory showing his infancy and his leadup to his role of Archangel on Omega. Good story and it seems that the writer really nailed Garrus.
Lastly, we have a Liara story. It's not the absolute best story, as I feel it could have done with being a little longer but we get to see some new environments. Also some nice interactions with Cerberus.
Overall, one of the better collections, especially as I was disappointed with Evolutions.
It's a similar case for Tali. Her story is set just before we meet her in Mass Effect. I loved her story as well but I did find some of her artwork (her...erm rear looks a little odd imo) but it was still really cool to get some background on one of Mass Effect's favorite characters!
I still haven't Mass Effect 3 which is why i haven't read James Vega's and Liara's stories yet incase of spoilers but the Tali and Garrus ones are great and worth getting for them alone. I will say that the volume is pretty thin BUT that also makes it more portable and bag friendly! But because the good points far outweigh the odd tiny bad point, and because i've read my favorite stories quite a few times by now, i give this 5 stars!! :D
