Master Chief Returns to Comics with Halo: Collateral Damage in June

In a story based on Halo‘s most iconic hero, Dark Horse Comics and 343 Industries are releasing a new three-issue miniseries Halo:  Collateral Damage-A Master Chief Story. This miniseries takes place shortly after the events of the Halo: Fall of Reach comics. Alex Irvine returns to the Halo universe to pen this new series and is joined by artist Dave Crosland, colorist Leonard O’Grady, letterer Simon Bowland, and cover artist Zak Hartong.

Halo: Collateral Damage follows the Master Chief and Blue Team as they are deployed by the UNSC to an unstable colony world. Their mission: terminate the Covenant’s efforts to uncover something ancient and powerful beneath the planet’s surface. But as the mission takes a turn for the unexpected, the Spartan strike team realizes that the stakes of their mission are higher than they realized and they’ll have to rely on each other and a small group of human rebels to survive!

Halo: Collateral Damage #1 (of 3) goes on sale June 06, 2018.

Dark Horse and 343 Industries Explore the Origins of Atriox and the Banished

Dark Horse and 343 Industries are set to release a new anthology series based on Halo Wars 2. Halo Wars 2, 343 Industries’ real-time strategy video game, introduces a new ruthless villain, Atriox. This five-chapter anthology collects stories by acclaimed comics creators Cullen Bunn, Jody Houser, John Jackson Miller, Alex Irvine, Claire Roe, Josan Gonzalez, Jonathan Wayshak, and Tristan Jones.

The first issue of Halo: Rise of Atriox finds Atriox, who is still a member of the massive alien collective known as the Covenant, leading his Brute brethren into an all-out assault on a UNSC outpost. Leader and creator of the Banished, Atriox is a fearsome warrior who rose to power by his charismatic personality and talent for shrewd strategic planning honed during his time serving as a member of the Covenant. Cullen Bunn composes this first issue, Claire Roe provides her gorgeous artistic skills to the Halo universe, Jeremy Colwell makes the illustrations pop with his gritty colors, and topping it all off is a breathtaking cover by Aleksi Briclot.

The first issue of Halo: Rise of Atriox goes on sale August 2, 2017.
