Review: ★★★☆☆

It’s difficult to come across what one would call an original idea. SelfMade is clearly inspired by several other media entertainment. This story has a game designer with a problem. Rebecca has made her NPC(non player character) better then she should. The character is not aware of what she is but that she is person. Rebecca can’t seem to find out how this happened. The story has a decent amount of intrigue. Rebecca has conflict with her supervisors. She’s simply attempting create the best character possible. Amala was introduced to us last issue and we relate to character as person in the story, but she’s just a program. SelfMade is an interesting future story that we have seen before but it’s interesting to see it worked in the VR game arena. Ferigato’s art holds the story together and makes it believable. His artwork does remind me of Sal Buscema. This issue ends with Rebecca testing her character in a specific way that will make the next issue fun.
