In this final installment of Invasion the action is in full force, gearing everyone up for the March release of Mass Effect 3. The issue starts us in the middle of the ongoing battle for Omega and never stops. The Illusive Man’s Colonel Ashe, General Petrovsky and their troops are now falling apart and dying left and right due to the team that has assembled under Aria’s command. General Petrovsky devises a plan that he is sure will work, but he underestimates Aria’s intelligence. Super angry and super determined, Aria refuse to back down and she devises her own plan. After a giant battle, a few history lessons and a lot of lives lost we are left wondering who will ultimately control the coveted Omega. I think it’s safe to say that Aria is a fierce opponent and will stop at nothing to get what she wants!

Like the previous issues of Mass Effect: Invasion, this one is full of massive amounts of action. Even though it is the same length as previous issues, it felt like it ended fast because of how gripping it was. As I was reading it I found myself fully immersed and really didn’t want it to end. This series has been an awesome lead up to the Mass Effect 3 game release and it will be fantastic to continue the story when the game finally comes out. The art, dialog and story are all top-notch and the ending was not exactly like I has expected which was a nice surprise. This series is a must read for Mass Effect fans, so if you haven’t picked it up yet I suggest you do before March.
