Halo fans rejoice! Dark Horse Comics has announced, at C2E2, that they will be releasing a new comic series based on the game this August. Two exclusive images were published on Wire.com from the series. Check out the official press release and images below. 

“One of the most iconic video game franchises in history comes to the number-one publisher of licensed comics!”

Official Press Release: Dark Horse continues in the tradition of bringing only the biggest and best characters and story lines to comics with the announcement of the Halo: Initiation miniseries, launching in August! This exciting 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)!

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!

"A rich science fiction universe driven by compelling characters, Halo has all the makings for show-stopping comics, " said Dave Marshall, Dark Horse Editor. "In Initiation, Brian and Marco are delivering an action-packed thrill-ride with a beating heart of authentic human drama."

“It’s really exciting to work with Dark Horse in continuing the Halo story in comics. 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.

Look for Halo: Initiation #1 on sale in comic shops everywhere on August 14!

 I cant imagine this being as satisfying as when you sticky grenade someone's face in the video game.

True violator,  but I love the Halo universe, so any new ways to experience the fiction is welcome for me.  Sara Palmer is a cool character from Spartan Ops so it will be sweet to read her back story.  Come to think of it I still have to finish Spartan Ops.  I better get on that.
