Dark Horse has just announced the Halo: Initiation miniseries, launching in August. The new miniseries will be written by Halo 4 writer and comics veteran Brian Reed, with art by Marco Castiello (Secret Invasion: Front Line, Star Wars: Purge).
I’m pretty excited, as so far I’ve loved most of the Halo lore-based stories and I can’t wait to learn more about Sarah Palmer…totally not because we share a name or anything. >_>
“Before she was a supersoldier defending humanity as part of the Spartan-IV program, Sarah Palmer was an ODST—Orbital Drop Shock Trooper—carrying out the most dangerous missions behind enemy lines! See how she became the first Spartan-IV commander in this must-read series for fans of Halo 4 and the Halo franchise!”
“After Halo 4 and Spartan Ops, fans wanted to know more about the origins of the Spartan-IV program and Sarah Palmer in particular. So it’s great fun to be able to grant those wishes with a partner like Dark Horse,” said writer Brian Reed.
Issue one comes out on August 14th, so make sure to check it out! I hope to see even more fully-armored ladies in comics. ❤
