Thread: New StarCraft Comic: "The Keep"

  1. #1

    Default New StarCraft Comic: "The Keep"



    Decent artwork and conclusion.
    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Pretty good... Umojan Shadowguards are awesome.

    I thought it was odd that they claim it takes place after the Covert Ops missions. It makes no sense for Nova to be dutifully and obediently working under Valerian and accepting memory wipes after she and Riegel went rogue with a whole ship full of classified tech.

    I also thought the writing was just okay. Imo there were a few too many times where the author stressed that the the new obstacle was the most advanced, or the most secure, or the brand-newest whatever, it got a little old. And it seems odd that Nova, basically the best Ghost out there, wouldn't have finished off that dude or sensed he was alive.

    BUT, I did like the more grounded approach to the art. A lot of the appearance of ships and suits seemed like something out of 1995, like this would be a comic that could have come out at the same time as Super Metroid, like this kind of tech. All those scribbly tech details.



    I liked Nova's decoy space suit, and the enemy ghosts, and loved that she met with Valerian in clothes other than her skintight Hostile Environment Suit. Showing characters in more than one outfit does a lot for my sense of worldbuilding/immersion.

    Now we just need an SC book focusing on them to see the details of what they do.

    This story happens before Nova Covert Ops, Robear.

    Personally I love the ships on the landing deck.

    That makes a lot more sense. I could have sworn that on the Blizzard page for it they had a warning saying "make sure you complete Covert Ops before reading this story!" But if it was ever there, they fixed it. Or maybe I was just imagining things, oops.

    No they edited it. Even shadowarchon posted that they changed it.
