MARCH 2,
Seattle, WA–Today at Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse Comics announced a new
ongoing canonical entry in the Mass
Effect
series!
Mass Effect 2 and 3 lead writer Mac Walters kicks off a new ongoing series, set in
the vibrant, engaging world of BioWare’s blockbuster science fiction epic! Fans
of the award-winning franchise will find new characters tied directly to the
newly announced Mass Effect 3: Citadel single-player DLC.
Praise for Mass Effect:
“This
comic is recommended whether you are a Mass
Effect
groupie or someone who has never heard of it before today and just
likes sci-fi. It’s a strong, good, enjoyable read!”—BAMFAS.com
“On
the writing front, the dialogue is straight out of what one would expect from a Mass
Effect
 related tie in. This positively reflects Dark Horse’s choice
to use the lead writer of the series as the lead writer of the comics.”—DualShockers.com
Mass Effect 3: Citadel will release worldwide on March
5 on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3, and on March 6 on PS3 in Europe. Price:
