Library Journal Review

As an innovative videogame, Mirror's Edge lets players enact dramatic parcour-style acrobatics over the rooftops. Lead character Faith is a runner in a band of outlaw couriers delivering messages among revolutionaries in a highly controlling society, taking the sky route to avoid omnipresent cameras and wiretaps. The comic miniseries collected here presents a prequel to the game narrative, an origin story for Faith plus her quest to learn about her mother's mysterious legacy and why the security squad is after her father. For newbies to the narrative, the comic is engrossing enough since readers must interpret details to understand Faith and her world. But the story is in no way as complex, dynamic, and fast-paced as many action/adventure titles and would surely disappoint anyone experienced with the game. Smith's clean, clear-line color art gleams with blandness, and many panels suffer from a static quality. VERDICT Film-comics crossovers face few format-conversion obstacles, but creating a satisfying game-based comic offers more challenges. This provides mild entertainment and a bit of new background without much enriching the overall experience of Faith's drama. Optional for teens and up.-M.C. (c) Copyright 2010.
