Last episode before the plunge!

Here's our last episode before the mid-season finale - which will come packed into episodes "The Debt - Part 1" and "The Debt - Part 2" (followed with a proper "second half" opener), which will change a lot of stuff in our narrative and its overall tempo and focus. I'm already excited!

Though the mid-season finale is focused on... different events, all you Nihlus, Jack, Miranda, Samara and Anderson lovers might start getting excited about what's coming next! ;)


This is an ongoing story providing an alternative fan-made ending to the Mass Effect trilogy, with our own game-changing maverick transforming the course of history: Marauder Shields. Be sure to start reading at episode 6. Special thanks to MichelKobayashi and my awesome team, especially our editor - AdoreeLyssa!

Hope is Alive!

I like how your comic takes advantage of it's medium of a comic. Where, you can have all of these interconnected characters and situations. While all of them are interesting, there are so many, it's a little hard to follow.

Yay hackett, finally doing something tactically sound. No offense...
Harbinger keeping the Normand busy Is tactically sound seeing as it appears to be the only ship in the entire galaxy fitted with a working Thanix cannon. So much more in line with my Favourite Reaper.
And the Joker/EDI thing, rather touching. Although i wonder if she could copy and send, but i wonder if an AI is too complex to do that.

Hackett always showed to have good instincts. He continues to make the tough calls, and the right ones.

Now what little Charlie Foxtrot is our indoctrinated little TIM going to throw into the mess?

He was all about control as recently as the attack on his HQ, he was willing to kill humans by the gross for his own agenda and go to open wore with the Alliance in the middle of the bloodiest conflict ever. It would be completely Out Of Character for him to suddenly be part of the team again.
