So I've been lurking this series, just discovered these audiobooks and got caught in a whirlwind of excitement. Then I came across this particular one and was too impressed to not leave a comment. Amazing job, the speech part was incredible and felt like something pulled from a professional movie...

I'm constantly repeating myself, but so what? Again, great work. I read today about the new Leviathan-DLC for ME3 but I have to say that it doesn't interest me nearly as much as the next instalment of your series. Keep up the good work!

Good work, all parties involved did well.

I still think Savia was overestimating the Reapers.

What she said, all of it (but not the Kasumi part). Hackett out.

Given your ability to own any voice thrown at you, I'm pretty sure you actually could be Kasumi.

Lets swap roles. LadyHackett out.

Let me tell you something that I've learned the hard way: One does not simply swap into being Hackett. Hackett out.

Excellent work everyone involved, these audio books really add to the story! I'm also really digging AdoreeLyssa's Asari voice, she just sounds... right I guess.

Really great job! But i think with the audio books, the comic is just begging for more static shots, and a motion comic. For example, the transition from "checked all sink systems no longer than five minutes ago" to Jacob's "Have i ever told you my boot camp story", needs static shots, to show emotion or characters. Otherwise, theres a long awkward pause.

Still, the music beats suit the comic EVEN better, its not just loud booming epic music, and the drama is much more natural. Loving it!

By the way, will you be releasing the new issues with Audiobooks? I know its a lot more work, and it will be released twice as slow, but i think its worth the wait, with the music and voices in mind, you will know when to add in more panels.

Phew....thank god this series still exists. Mass Effect lives on in this.

Since everyone involved is doing this for free and out of their love for the Mass Effect Universe, you have to work around schedules, a lot. But, yes, we would love to release audio at the same time the comic is release. . . just not sure if that will happen for this series.

Thanks, StrawberryRainPop! :) Yeah, the motion comic is definitely in the plans, still a lot to do before we arrive at that, though. And yeah, ALL episodes will be turned to audiobooks, each and every one of them - as our cast expands, we will go back to the ones we're missing right now and move towards the newer ones. We'll try to keep it at a 1 audio episode per week level... But, for sure, all will be done. :)

Mass Effect lives and will live on. :)

It will be short to read (not a lot of written text), but if you like a certain [Biotic Storm], you should like it. ;)
