Blasto Will Be Getting His Own Comic
It’s safe to say we’ll be debating Mass Effect 3′s quality for years to come. Obviously, you know where Game Front falls in the conversation, but everyone, no matter how much they like the game, has at least a few things they hated about it. (Just some examples: lame sidequests; same day DLC; on disc DLC; etc etc etc). But it’s just as safe to say everyone agrees that one of Mass Effect 3′s highlights is the hilarious in-universe Lethal Weapon 2 and Tango and Cash mashup, “Blasto 6: Partners in Crime.” Players can listen to what appears to be the whole thing via a billboard on The Citadel. Guaranteed, you and I both did this at least twice.
Which is why everyone wishes we could get more Blasto. And now, it seems, we can. Dark Horse Comics is publishing a 1-shot issue called Blasto: Eternity is Forever. Here’s the official description:
Written by lead game writer Mac Walters with art by Omar Francia, Blasto: Eternity is Forever, is sure to be a smash hit amongst fans of the franchise!
Blasto, who is described as having “a lover in every port and a gun in every tentacle” doesn’t have time for your solid waste excretions. On a remote space station overlooking the Elcor homeworld… the lone Spectre puts an end to the nefarious deeds of an outlaw band of mercenaries bent on galactic-wide domination.
Blasto: Eternity is Forever is available exclusively in the Dark Horse Digital store November 28th, 2012!
Yeah, I realize it’s going to have the horrible, static art style that is Dark Horse’s stock in trade, and the ending will probably reveal something silly, like Blasto is actually Shepard. But too late! You get my money, Dark Horse.
Anyway, here’s the full cover art:
