Dragon Age: Redemption is the latest web-series from writer/actress/internet-wunderkind Felicia Day. Set in the sprawling and epic fantasy universe of BioWare’s Dragon Age game series, last year’s 6-episode web-series has now been collected on DVD. But make no mistake: Dragon Age: Redemption is no mere web-based promotional tie-in. It is an ambitious project that pushes the boundaries of what can be accomplished in web-based filmmaking.
This one-shot comic is a good introduction into the world of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, and it even sets the stage for a future ongoing series. While I am a fan of the TV show, the comic arguably does a better job of hooking readers into the narrative, than the source material ever did. Gone are some of the stranger undertones that made the series so controversial and criticized.
