Thanks to previous mini-series, Mass Effect fans have been able to learn more about characters like The Illusive Man and Aria T'Loak. Now the fauxhawked soldier who'll be running alongside your Commander Shepard gets the spotlight in the first issue of the new Mass Effect: Homeworlds series. You can take an exclusive look at issue one's covers in the images above. Written by Mass Effect 3 lead writer Mac Walters, each installment of Homeworlds will focus on one of the main characters of the game. You can look for Mass Effect: Homeworlds to hit comics shops and digital storefronts this April.
Ugh. Everything about that character's design makes me cringe. A faux-hawk in the future? Really? We have a faux-hawk-wearing, football-player-looking, grunting soldier as the one full new party member in the game? Who the hell is that character supposed to appeal to, Jersey Shore fangirls? Closet homosexuals with a taste for douchebag? I just don't get it.
