    The Rise of Raam #3 leads to a grand climax in the expanded Gears of War universe.

The entirety of this series takes place from the perspective of the Locust, making it a unique addition to the Gears of War franchise. Once this particular series is over, I could see fans reading this before replaying the first game. Furthermore, I believe several other comics based around the Locust could tell compelling stories and be very successful. Read Full Review
