Mirror’s Edge Comic Issue #1

The Mirror’s Edge game didn’t answer all the questions that were raised up by the plot and because the story of the Runners is so intensive, I decided to read the comic issues that followed this production.

The Runners are an illegal association, a courier group that works above the City’s legal requirements.

They tend not to get involve in what they are transporting, because they are paid only to deliver.

When Faith Connors is caught stealing, her victim will become soon the one to infiltrate her into this world of Runners.

Faith is ready for getting some action and because a new ear-piece must be tested, she is sent into the battle field.

A couple of stunts and she’s enjoying life like nobody else would. The only thing is that one of her comrades is in a pinch and he needs help – so by helping him, she gets to see what he was carrying – surveillance photos of her father.

Written by Rhianna Pratchett and illustrated by Matthew Dow Smith, this first issue is representing Faith’s first encounter with the dangerous world of the Runners.

She is persistent anyway so living on the edge it’s the best way for her to start.
