Revision as of 08:33, December 17, 2010

For the novels and other books, see Books.

There are currently three comics in the Mass Effect universe, with another expected in early 2011. An 'Interactive Backstory Comic', Mass Effect: Genesis, is also slated to be released with the Playstation 3 version of Mass Effect 2.

As the game is considered to be the player's story, none of comics, like the novels, feature Commander Shepard as the main character. The sole exception is Mass Effect: Genesis, which, being interactive, allows the player to control Shepard's decisions.
