Dark Horse's Halo Omnibus Launches Tomorrow
A new Halo game is in the works, but Master Chief likely won't be returning to video games any time soon. If you need your fix of the green armor, Dark Horse is launching a new Halo Omnibus tomorrow that features chapters written by Halo 4's senior writer Chris Schlerf, and Halo 5: Guardians' lead writer Brian Reed.
This monstrous 368-page paperback book reprints the complete three-issue series of Halo: Initiation and the first 12 issues of Halo: Escalation. Readers will also find a cover gallery and a variety of process pages. Along with Reed and Schlerf, the book features writing by Duffy Boudreau, and art by Sergio Arino, Ricardo Sanchez, and Douglas Franchin. The cover is illustrated by Jean-Sebastein Rossbach.
Halo: Escalation is set after the events of Halo 4, and follows the crew of the UNSC Infinity as they try to foster peace between the Elites and Brutes. What they soon find, however, is a long-lost UNSC asset is in enemy hands. Halo: Initiation tells the story of Sarah Palmer before she wore Spartan armor.
The Halo Omnibus retails for $24.99. Dark Horse lists it as volume 1, meaning we'll likely see another in the future!
