Cartridge Club #51 - Mass Effect 2

One month after the events of Mass Effect, the SSV Normandy is patrolling for geth resistance when it is suddenly attacked by an unknown vessel, forcing the crew to abandon ship. After pushing Joker into the final escape pod, Shepard is blasted into space and dies via asphyxiation after a suit breach. His/her body is pulled into the orbit of a nearby planet and recovered by Cerberus, who begin the "Lazarus Project" with the sole purpose of bringing Shepard back to life. After two years, Shepard is revived on an operating table and escapes a research station under attack by its own security mechs alongside Cerberus operatives Jacob Taylor and Miranda Lawson.
