Far away from Earth, on Gagarin Station-or "Brain Camp," as its students call it-a young Kaidan Alenko undergoes his biotic training. During an exceptionally grueling lesson, Kaidan steps in to defend the lovely Rahna from the brutal Commander Vyrnnu-but his rash actions have tragic consequences!

    Overall, I think that it is fun, exciting, and really raw human emotion. I give it a five out of five. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Oct 20, 2013

    Now breaking away from the story of the new character Rasa and bringing in the beloved Alenko, this issue has done a great job of allowing the universe of Mass Effect to expand naturally and through a parallel timeline in regards to the story of the game. Using characters both familiar and new, the creative team has already done a terrific job keeping a familiar tone in a beloved franchise while also adding new things to keep readers interested. The artwork can get a bit odd at times, but the infrequency of this makes it nearly negligible, adding up to a very interesting and pleasing series thus far. Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Oct 29, 2013

    Mass Effect: Foundation #4 is a step back in the right direction for this maxi-series, sporting a stronger story and character than last issue. The one problem that continues to hold this series back since the change was made is still the artistic style. It doesn't hurt this issue as badly, because it features a younger Kaidan, but I still don't like it. The story being told supersedes this ongoing artistic setback, but it is still worth noting. This is still a good comic series so far, andMass Effect fans will especially like it. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Daniel Briscoe Nov 21, 2013

    I feel like we're still a few issues out from seeing what Rasa, the Illusive Man, and all of these characters will have in common with each other before the end of this story. We know where this is going – the events of the games are pretty clear at this point. But how we get there is the really exciting part of this love letter to Mass Effect fans, and if this series is anything like the games, this series will not disappoint. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jeff Butler Oct 23, 2013

    The issue makes me want to catch up with the series, as I've been out of the loop since ‘Mass Effect: Invasion'. It's a likeable addition to the canon and hopefully a sign of a long and prosperous relationship between Dark Horse and Bioware's stellar franchise. Read Full Review
