very interesting origin story to some well known characters, the art style has nice touches and I can't think of what more I could need from it

HASH(0x9d4c7594) out of 5 stars Great backstory on the Illusive Man! Sept. 27 2011
By Phoenix - Published on
Format: Paperback
This Evolution series is a great addition to the Mass Effect Universe. It gives a much needed backstory on Jack Harper, who eventually becomes the Illusive Man, leader of the human organization, Cerberus. I enjoyed this series and recommend it to any Mass Effect fan that wants to delve a little deeper into the Illusive Man's past.

HASH(0x9d4c75e8) out of 5 stars Not a Must Have Feb. 9 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you love the game and love it for the story, then all the back stories are just icing on the cake. If you are looking for a great graphic novel then this isn't it. I'm not disappointed in the purchase at all, but it isn't something I feel completed the story from the game in any way. If characters from this story end up popping up in Mass Effect 3 then I stand corrected, but as of now this doesn't fill in any gaps or shed any new light on anything. It is more of a history lesson on the Illusive Man's distant past without filling you in on how he became who he is in the current story told in the games.

As a fan of the game and the story being told, it wasn't a disappointment in the sense that it wasn't as though I read it and felt I wasted my time. But it also wasn't what I was expecting either.

HASH(0x9d4c78c4) out of 5 stars The Illusive Man Jan. 23 2012
By Cuban B - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Short Comic, only takes about an hour to read cover to cover. Gives you insight into the making of the "Illusive Man", and while the story procedes slowly to start (giving you insight into the Illusive man), at the very ends it ties everything together (a little bit too quickly). So in the end you know a little bit more about the Illusive Man but you DO NOT know his full story (you know how/what makes him the Illusive Man but not really how he got where he is). Its hard to describe without giving anything away. Good read if you are a Mass Effect fan.
HASH(0x9d4c77bc) out of 5 stars The Ellusive Illusive Exclusive! Sept. 11 2013
By Jerod Lytton - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a self confessed Mass Effect superfan. i have loved it from the moment I started the first game through the 5+ complete playthroughs I have done of the trilogy. The story, characters, sound, environments, and action were top notch. There are moments in this game, especially of those with strong ties to the characters, that have an emotional impact unlike anything I have played in gaming. With the added DLC that has come out, and the over 500 hours I have gotten out of the multi player, this title is very well worth the cost and addition to your library and will flesh out the storyline and background of The Illusive Man's origin and actions to what drives him and answers many of the questions and raises more about this shady character. Well written with good pencils, a must for any fan or anyone wanting more information on the lore behind the game.
HASH(0x9d4c79cc) out of 5 stars Much better than Redemption. Oct. 28 2011
By Le Grand Fromage - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a worthy addition to the Mass Effect universe. Lends some valuable insight into how the Illusive Man came to be, and also explains some of Saren's past. The end feels a bit rushed, however, and is ultimately unsatisfying - there's not a lot of info about Cerberus, and for the whole book it just seems like the Illusive Man is a grunt, but at the end...he's suddenly the leader? How did that happen?

This is certainly better than Redemption. There's no extreme OOC-ness, and the art isn't quite so garish. It's definitely not as good as the novels, but still worth a read even if you're only a moderate fan.
