Marauder Shields: Episode 53 (B)

"Course Correction"

The 53rd episode of the Marauder Shields comic. In this one… We pick up our story right where we left it off, with Jacob and Kasumi racing against time. This version is meant for female Shepards who romanced Jacob.

Additional information

Episodes 52 and 53 (this one) were originally written as a single episode, which – I believe – made the former feel a bit obsolete… Alas, hope that splitting them up didn’t spoil them for you. There’s a lot of cool stuff coming in the next few episodes, so be sure to keep up with my latest updates!

Seemed unfair that this version wasn’t getting any comment action so here we go. It is great to see the Jacob and Shepard relationship get some well handled recognition. It was dealt with so poorly, as many of FemShep’s romances were … to be honest pretty much every romance other than Liara (by a baffling/bemusing author’s-pet mile), Garrus and Tali were failed prior to the Citadel DLC but I digress. So much is said with so little and the emotional beats in Jacob’s face in the last few panels really sell the moment. Great work Koobs.

I never played as a FemShep, but it’s good to see them getting some recognition.

hello to all community, especially to koobs, i really enjoy your work, MS series has really gave the Mass effect ending that it deserves, cant wait to see how it will all resolve, but i am sure it will be great…
anyway since this is my first post (even though i have been following this series from the times before you created the website) i would like to ask have you ever played witcher series and what is your opinion of it…
of course when i ask for your opinion i dont mean about game( which you are still more then welcome to give), but about its story…
i mean i really enjoy reading every article you write, and i would really like your input about this since it is my favorite game…
so long story short, have you ever played witcher series, what is your opinion of it, and did you planned to maybe write an article about it…
p.s. sorry about my english, not my native language
