To view it, click here. Me, being the brain dead man-child I'm, am no stranger to Gears of War videogame. So being the skinny wimp who regularly gets beaten by 12 year olds like nobody's business, it's quite understandable that I like the game.
The first game being the typical mish mash of all the things went to hell, with nowhere near ass to be fo Me, being the brain dead man-child I'm, am no stranger to Gears of War videogame. The first game being the typical mish mash of all the things went to hell, with nowhere near ass to be found plot, character arcs thin as dog piss, areas that no sane person would ever build but are stuck on your path because someone in the level design department thought that 'shit gotta be there' and the whole mess being hold together by an promise of violence.
And seeing that the game went on to form an trilogy, which gives me at least some hope, that something even resembling a story can be salvaged from the wreck in the later parts, it should not became as an surprise, that there was a whole load of off side merchandise pushed to the market in order to cash in all those Gamespot scores.
Just like the owner of the said store was not surprised when I welshed in, yapped about the bathetic try to cash in, started to build up a monolith for the octopus god residing in my brain and leaving the store without actually buying anything. At this point you gentle reader most likely expect me to accept the error of my hasty judgment, give the comic a proper score, and admit that the book indeed should not be judged by its cover. Weeeeeell, not gonna bloody happen!
The story picks off a day? A month? A year? Weeeeeell, not gonna bloody happen! The story picks off a day? A month? A year? The point is, earth is in war with Locusts, a strange alien race that came from…. A stunt that apparently just fucked up all remaining planet surface, causing terminal lung cancer to every gear that survived the actual bombing.
Most likely there were just two stranded locust that came to earth to witness a life form that is more stupid than a tapeworm. And the premise is pretty much all the story you are going to get from this thing. The whole comic is —like the game- spent on following a bunch of gears, when they wander from point A to B while facing increasingly tougher enemies, only to pull it through to the next bullet fest.
And the thing is, this is all there is, no plot or story what so ever. Gears end up in situations, where five of all four solutions involve violence.
And they just survive from all these situations because writers are too lazy to come up with anything inventive. At first they are on a helicopter, which gets attacked and the pilot is killed, but one of the gears just so happens to have some piloting experience.
And despite them crashing in middle of nowhere after a short walk they just so happen to come by an village, that just so happens to have an completely working tank lying around. The village is ready to give them a tank , if they in return kill the five locusts that have been raiding the village.
Later on the thank gets shot in an ambush, but they just so happen to come by another gears that have heavy artillery this after whining page after page how all the left behind gears must be dead and after that it turns out, that the tank just so happened to hold couple of motorcycles with heavy weaponry. And the saddest part is that Gears seems to need all the luck they can get, since they themselves are as logical as Ed Gein.
Gears kill the five locusts bothering the village, making the village safe. The reader must constantly be reminded about how though the gears are, since apparently he's as thick as the rest of them. In order for gear to die in this comic, he must be a depressed lung cancer victim, who takes off his armor and charges against the enemy army bare handed.
Yup, this is the level of retardness we are dealing with. In the second story we follow, who I guess is supposed to be Dom, but is drawn so badly, that he looks like Equardo ChiciChici Hulio, the love child of an Spanish immigrant and inbred chimpanzee.
In a hack-together-tale about some firefight, flashbacks and melodramatic mumbo jumbo about how war is hell, but he still has hope. Comic pulls this off as gracefully as a blind elephant in a dance floor full of stoned hippies. Given the franchise most of these down sides are somewhat understandable.
When trying to make it as a major hit videogame in the AAA department of videogames and in order to make up its oversized budget, Gears of War has to play like its consumer base.
And yes, sometimes it does work…In a bloody video game, where the constant action and over whelming rush keep you distracted. But comics are stale, the lack of adrenaline rush makes the story ever more important. But the only thing epic in this comic is the fail. View 1 comment.

All gear heads like mauhh lol well love this. Aug 20, sixthreezy rated it it was amazing Shelves: One for fans, but a good one. If you're a total Gear-Head then you'll love this comic book series based on the smash hit Gears of War video game.
It just hits all the right marks. Plenty of action, spot on artwork by Liam Sharp and totally faithfully portrayed characters from the game who are also supported by some pretty cool new recruits. Big chunky guys, firing big chunky guns at big chunky aliens - it's cracking military sci-fi.

Marcus and Dom lead Delta squad on a mission to find survivors after the events in the first Gears of War game. Other favourite characters also get welcome cameos like Cole Even if you don't play the game I think any sci-fi military fan should get a kick out of this.
Apr 30, David rated it it was amazing. I loved this book!!! I think since the book was a graphic novel it really helped the idea and story plot. I also liked the new characters they had that weren't in either games. I would've liked if they had put the Beserker in the book a little bit more than they did but, they had a lot of locust and boomers. If I were to compare myself to any of the characters it would be Dom. The reason i would compare myself to him is because he would just go out in the battlefield and fought anyone who got in I loved this book!!!
The reason i would compare myself to him is because he would just go out in the battlefield and fought anyone who got in his way. And thats what I would do to. Sep 01, Kelvin Waddingham rated it it was amazing. Mar 15, Sonic rated it liked it. Yeah it is based on a video game that I know nothing about. But here we have with an independent company what is so sorely missing in the big publishing companies Marvel D. The art was very strong, tightly rendered scenes of sci-fi military violence. The writing was nothing that I haven't seen before but it was the kind of stuff I like, and it was well done.
Mar 07, Joshua rated it really liked it.
I enjoyed it pretty well. The storyline arc was still pretty congruent with the games minus the fact that when Barrick showed up he had no idea who Jace was, and vice versa. That and some of the artwork could've been a little bit better is the only real gripe I have about this book, but otherwise it was still a great read. Looking forward to the second which I already have on my to read pile downstairs. Jun 08, Harry Lawrence rated it really liked it Shelves: Definitely worth a read for Gears of War fans.
He keeps all of the environments, vehicles and weapons fairly blocky and big but they are really drawn accurately to the source material.
The character models all resemble the video game counterparts and Mr.
The colors are much the like cover except very heavy on silver, black and of course crimson red. It was very pleasing to the eyes as well as felt dirty and gritty as if I was sucked into a war zone.
The panels flow together and Mr. Mhan hardly used a whole lot of splash pages and with more panels it felt more like watching a TV show then reading a comic and that is what made it such a page turner because it felt on pace of the action parts of Gears of War as well as the actions and blood effects being top notch.
It was very well written for people who have played the games and read the books because it makes nods to characters from the books as well as in game. Even though it might need a small refresher.
