I love Dead Space and suffice it to say I'm kind of Fanboy for everything Dead Space--not just the game. So, I picked this up with tons of excitement. Off the bat I was more or less not impressed by Templesmith's art--he's been doing a lot of work and I assume there are many out there who are in love with it, but I feel very much like it's rough and, I don't know, "not good?" So anyway, I read the first two pages of character bios and was feeling like I'd REALLY made a mistake picking up this book due to the horrendous error that makes the book kind of laughable--which is a bad quality for the horror genre. (The error itself had already been mentioned in the reviews above so I won't get into it) So at this point I was hating on the art, the writer and damning the editor for making me squirm with painful embarrassment. To make a long story just a little shorter. I kept reading, I got more enthralled in what was happening in the book and sans the other three errors in the text I managed to find the story pretty captivating. But beyond that, beyond just the story, I found that once things started heating up Templesmith's contribution to this text was stunningly apropos. His art style, around chapter...3? Chapter...4 maybe? had really started to fit--it's truly uncanny. Bottom Line: I highly recommend you spend the (<) 15 dollars on this book (especially if you're a fan of the video game). The story's good enough to pass and it's worth the money just to experience that shift--just to experience how amazingly uncanny Templesmith's art style fits the subject matter.

This one is a miss. there is fairly believable reality with technocrats and religious divisions. But once the main thrust of the plot begins it is a not very original. The art at time looks like a red paint was just spilled on the page. At key points in the story it is hard to recognize whether there is red light a bunch of blood or what. I think at times it either, and at times both, but I can't be sure.

The comic follows a colony that discovers a "marker" that might be conected to a religion, then the bad stuff happens. The art work is different, I want to say "sketchy", but that is a good thing (same art as in the 30 Days of Night comic). It adds a tone and unique view for a horror comic. Light enough not to overwhelm the eye, but detailed enough to make things look different. It's a good read for horror with story. As for sequels, it is two. The comic begins the events from the planet to Ishimura (the ship), the cartoon (haven't seen)"Dead Space: Downfall" tells what happens from Ishimura to the workman shuddle, and the PS3/xbox360 game (Highly recommend in a dark room with suround sound) "Dead Space" covers and completes the story.
If you can, you can go to PSN (Play Station Network) or check the web for the anicomic (the comic with minor movement, pan/scans, and voice acting). It really is worth checking out, and its free.

WOW. This book is AMAZING. The story was great, the art was excellent, the story was phenomenal. Ben TempleSmith really did it this time. So did Anthony Johnston on the story. You owe it to yourself to get this book. But you might have to get it online since I dont think it's available in any book stores in the U.S. AT THE TIME. It's only not bad but not good thing was that it was a little on the short side if you know what I mean. It was still a great read dont get me wrong, but personally I think something this great should've been a little longer. If you get this book I hope you like it and I hope it scares the guts out of you. Just like the headline, SEQUELS PLEASE!!!!!!!
