Mass Effect: Redemption #4
"Redemption, part 4"
the final issue of the story arc, Feron's triple-game is finally known.
Throughout the series, every Feron scene I wrote had to be approached
with both an understanding of what his true loyalties were -- plus the
image he was intending to portray to Liara at the time. Fortunately,
I'd had some experience with this kind of masquerade over in Knights of
the Old Republic. We also got to use a tried-and-true comic-book
device, the origin story, in spelling out his motivations.
By the time Mass Effect Redemption #4 came out, I was hip-deep in writing the novel Star Wars: Knight Errant, so it was actually a longer-than-usual stretch before I sat down to read the issue! The gap between the last issue of Redemption and the launch of the Knight Errant comics series was also the longest stretch for me without new comics on the stands since 2004, after Iron Man ended. Again, the novel was the main reason...
- Issue #4 begins with one
of our longest combat sequences, a showcase for Omar Francia's art.
flash drives are still the key means of sneaking around bunches of
information in the future? Hard to say, but that one Feron has doesn't
- We slipped another fun reference to
Shepard's pronoun dilemma in Tazzik's description of the remains. "Hard
to tell if it's even a man or woman...!"
- And not to offend the readers, but this was the first comic book to include my photo -- as the "Horsepower" column in the back had a brief profile of me. These things happen!
