BioWare has previewed a new Mass Effect comic, subtitled Evolution on its blog. The four-issue mini-series, the first issue of which is due for release this month, digs into the origins of the Illusive Man.
Mass Effect 2 & 3 Lead Writer Mac Walters is joined by co-writer John Jackson Miller (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) and artist Omar Francia (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2).
"Mass Effect Evolution chronicles humanity's first deadly days on the galactic stage and uncovers the pivotal role The Illusive Man played in it all," details the blog. "Available only in comics, this essential piece of Mass Effect canon offers new insights for existing fans, while the focus on humanity's first steps into the wider Mass Effect universe provides a riveting story of action and intrigue."
