HALO: UPRISING #1 (of 4)

Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Pencils and Cover by ALEX MALEEV

The Eisner Award-winning team of superscribe Brian Michael Bendis and artist extraordinaire Alex Maleev unleash an epic story of mankind's struggle against the alien threat of the Covenant. Picking up from the conclusion of blockbuster video game Halo 2, the must-read issue reveals how the Master Chief, while onboard a hostile ship headed towards Earth, is battling against Covenant forces! Intertwined with Master Chief's interstellar one-man-war is the saga of a great American city's rebellion and downfall, two disparate lives' collision and shared fate, and the Convenant's hunt for an ancient relic of untold power and value. With hope dwindling and the fate of humanity hanging by a thread, is there any chance for a future? Read this debut issue to start the journey into the Halo universe!

40 PGS./17 and Up ...$3.99

Sweet! Does this mean that in H3 we won't start off in Truth's ship heading toward Earth? If so, bummer. Still, cool news. Nice artwork.

That's not Truth's ship. He's just borrowing it. :smile:

We may still start on the ship, but even if we don't, it's not necessarily a bad thing:

On that first level there?s a moment when you?re in combat in an epic encounter, and also you can see over a ridge to another epic combat waiting for you to arrive at it. You can do something more amazing over there that you can see being set up for your arrival. [01/19/2007 - Edge]

PLOT TWIST?!

...Maybe they're separatists?

Or he's just posing for a sexy shot while the entire Covenant Armada is pursuing him. =P

I am digging the cover. And I wonder which American city they will show the battle in.

You people and your crazy-ass guesses. It's clearly Anamoose, North Dakota. Looking at the cover, I don't see how it could possibly be anywhere else.

I was going to say Redmond/Kirkland, but your guess is far better than mine. I can't believe I didn't think of that. Excellent.

Since it's a four-issue series, that means it'll wrap up in October. I wonder if that signals a November release for H3? My guess is probably not, but it's something to consider. I still think the September release sounds the most likely.
