Released Comic Books
There are currently two comic books in the Mass Effect Universe, with two more upcoming, one in early 2011, the other unknown. As the game is considered to be the player's story, none of comics, like the novels, feature Commander Shepard as the main character.
Currently all of the comic books have been written and scripted by BioWare lead writer Mac Walters, and drawn by Omar Francia, with contributions from colorist Michael Atiyeh, letterer Michael Heisler, cover designer Daryl Mandryk. Mass Effect: Evolution however, is being scripted by John Jackson Miller.
