Simply put, this first volume of StarCraft: Ghost Academy is a darn good read, and the reason why is simply because of the excellent character writing. The characters themselves are fairly familiar; readers will recognize them from any kind of story that revolves around groups of disparate people coming together, playing on the themes of team building and teamwork. However, as written by DeCandido, the characters come alive with such forceful personalities. I think “grab you” is the description I want to use for these denizens of Ghost Academy. Even the jerks and bad guy type characters engage. ...
StarCraft: Ghost Academy is that infrequently seen beast – the comic book media tie-in that can stand alone as a good comic book.
Works for me. *grin*
