Halo Comic Book Coming Soon
8:07 AM | Cord Kruse | 13 comments

Fans of graphic novels and Halo will soon be able to return to Master Chief's universe in the upcoming Halo Graphic Novel from Bungie Studios. The 128-page, full color, high quality hardcover graphic novel will consist of an anthology of stories set in the Halo game world. Produced by Bungie, the HGN will feature the company's "first choice picks" of artists and writers to paint, draw, letter, and write the graphic novel.

The project actually started about a year and a half ago. Bungie artist Lorraine McLees' passion for the graphic novel medium, and her contacts from the industry led to us getting a budget together, sourcing the writers and artists and creating the initial premises for the stories. Once we'd done that, we set off an inexorable chain reaction of talent, and the treatments, samples and eventually, the finished panels started rolling in.

Oddly enough, we got more than three quarters of the way through the project before we secured the coolest publisher in the business. Marvel. (‘Nuff said.) This isn't the normal mode of production, but the folks at Marvel shared our excitement for both the Halo universe, and the brilliant team of creative types we'd already assembled. A deal was signed and we're basically handing off the completed book as a faits accomplis, but using Marvel's guidance and expertise to take it from the (literal) drawing board to the bookstore shelves.

The Halo Graphic Novel should be available for purchase in July. To learn more about those involved with the project, and check out some samples of the artwork, click on the link below.
