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.
Announced at Comic-Con International, 343 Studios’ Frank O’Connor announced that Dark Horse Comics would publish an all-new ongoing series later this year based on the massive video game franchise Halo.
This news comes prior to next month’s release of the first issue of the highly anticipated miniseries Halo: Initiation.
Earlier this year Dark Horse acquired the comic-book license for Halo and announced a mini-series titled Halo: Initiaion, which will be released in August. But, it has been confirmed that Initiation won’t be the only Halo comic as Dark Horse will be announcing an ongoing series beginning in December.
