    As much as I love the Dragon Age game, Those Who Speak falls a little off from the game that I remember playing. I like the idea that it takes place ten years after the first game and I like the idea that if follows one of the more popular characters in the game, but the story feels a bit disjointed in this first issue. I did enjoy the art the colors were bright with a slight touch of cartoony but it does not go overboard on the style. Although the art in this book was very good, the story on this first issue of Dragon Age comic was a little underwhelming but I still have hope that the book can turn it around come issue two.

    To be sure, Dragon Age: Those Who Speak #1 is competent storytelling. But it brings little to the overall mythology of the series. People that know little of the game will feel lost by the various historical references. While longtime fans will wonder when the book will get to the actual story. There is some potential within the series, both in the characters and the plot. However, Gaider and Freed need to pick up the pace if they want to hold the readers interest. Strong pencils and coloring can only carry a book so far. Read Full Review
