Halo: Escalation #2 picks up where #1 left off, with enough action, politics, and intrigue to keep anyone interested. You don’t have to have played Halo to enjoy the series so far, and I’m really enjoying the fact that the women in the story are treated as characters, rather than “female characters.”
The art is fine, not mind-blowing, but certainly not too mediocre. I don’t love the color palette, but it’s very in line with the colors in the game, so I can’t complain too much. The ships and aliens continue to be the most interesting parts, as they’re each obviously lovingly crafted.
All in all, I’m really enjoying it and I can’t wait for part three!
“As Sarah Palmer fights to get the Arbiter and the Brute Ambassador to safety, Captain Lasky sneaks behind enemy lines to reestablish communications with the UNSC Infinity. Their plans for escape are jeopardized, however, by a turncoat in their midst!”
