    Default Tokyopop graphic novel previews

    Tokyopop put up a preview of StarCraft: Ghost: Academy today. There's no plot, but it does show characters. And yes, Gabriel Tosh is there. No sign of Tychus Findlay; I think it's only showing the ghost characters.

    Also Frontline: Volume 3's previews were up some time ago.

    Wow, can they make Nova's boobs any bigger? First it's her vaccum tight suction cupped ass that was being advertised and now this what, 17-21 year old girl suddenly got implants?

    Tosh looks a little skinny compared to the in game we got, but eh, Blizzard isn't really that great with scaling in their games.

    Woah woah woah, what's going on in Frontline preview 3?

    A psi blade AND gun wielding thing? Wtf? Is it a ghost? Looks kind of like one. The weapon doesn't look like the Terran version of the Psy Blade though.
    Also, are those archons in the last preview or what?

    Thanks Kimera! These look good.

    She'll spend most of her time facing towards the reader rather than away from the gamer.

    I wonder if it's the same artist who did Newsworthy? (Whoever did that gave Kate Lockwell big breasts, but not in her news anchor outfit, oddly enough. She has more reasonable-sized breasts in War-Torn.)

    He looks too young there. I hope he's not a trainee at the same time as Nova! He's supposed to have known Sarah Kerrigan before she went rogue (8 years before StarCraft, 12-14 years before StarCraft II!).

    The ghost-thing is from "Do No Harm". The description reads:

    In "Do No Harm," the sadistic "Butcher of Korhal," Dr. Burgess, gets his bloody hands on Muadun, a recently captured protoss high templar and goes dissecting for clues on how to mass-produce horrifying protoss-terran soldiers...

    You can get the other descriptions at the StarCraft Wiki in my signature, or at Tokyopop.

    Also, are those archons in the last preview or what?
    Probably twilight archons (given the name of the short story... Twilight Archon). I don't know why there would be two of them, though.

    I think it's weird that Protoss can be resoced. You'd think that the Khala would protect them from resocialization like it protects them from infestation.

    Wait, what? Where does it say protoss can be resoc'd? I think Dr. Burgess intends to dissect Muadun, and possibly put his genes in a terran.

    I must be out of the loop, but I thought that he planned to resoc him, since that's his specialty. Isn't Muadun that Protoss w/ the gun in the scans? O_o

    Burgess' specialization is resoc, but he's planning on dissecting Muadun to make terran-protoss soldiers, and possibly to prove that terrans are superior to protoss.
