Although some elements from the classic movies are present, this is a very different story with characters who are both recognizable and unknown to Star Wars fans. Luke Skywalker is not a bright-eyed farm boy but a battle-tested general. Darth Vader is his evil counterpart, but without his famous breathing mask. Han Solo is an alien. Despite all these changes, The Star Wars attempts to introduce its loyal fans to the story that might have been, while reigniting memories the classic science fiction movie.

Halo is one of the most popular video games in the industry today. The first-person shooter follows Master Chief, a Spartan who battles against the alien invaders, the Covenant and the Flood. Although it is a booming franchise, the Halo universe is largely unexplored outside of this character. Dark Horse Comics attempts to remedy this problem with their new comic miniseries. A lead-in to the new Halo mobile game, Halo: Spartan Assault, Halo Initiation follows Commander Sarah Palmer as she undergoes a secret United Nations Space Command (UNSC) Spartan program. Without the Master Chief, the Covenant or the Flood supporting the story, Halo Initiation branches away from the video games to open a new world for their fans.
