Set between Halo 2 and Halo 3, Halo: Uprising attempts to tie the two games together and answer questions fans have been asking for a long time.
“It was an honor to be asked to add something to the Halo pot,” said writer Brian Michael Bendis. “To bring to Halo what the graphic novel brought, some humanity and perspective—something you can’t get in the game based solely on the nature of the different mediums. Alex and I also have tried to create a juicy sci-fi story that even if you don’t play or know anything about Halo, you could buy this and enjoy it just on its own character and storytelling momentum. But if you are a Halo die-hard you will find connections, characters, and references to not only the three Halo games, but the novels as well.”
Marvel Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the cover which debuts on July 18.
