I don't own this comic, but I have read the first volume.

Review

Good

  • A lot of the drawings in the comic are really nice, especially the action sequences.

Bad

  • The story is pretty juvenile and trope-heavy.
  • I don't care much for the character design of Samus as an adult.
  • How is it a group of pirates are often more powerful than the entire Federation's military?
  • A lot of characters were added that don't appear in any of the games.

Ugly

  • Nothing, but I didn't find it very interesting.
