Dark Horse Announces ‘Halo: Initiative’ Comic Miniseries By Reed And Castiello

The Halo comic book license will jump from Marvel to Dark Horse this August 14, with the release of the first issue of a new miniseries titled Halo: Initiation. As revealed by Wired yesterday, the mini will be written by longtime comic book writer, Halo: Fall of Reach novelist and Halo 4 video game scribe Brian Reed, with art by Marco Castiello of Secret Invasion: Front Line and Star Wars: Purge. Initiation is set to detail the origin of Halo 4 Spartan Ops protagonist Sarah Palmer and her rise from Orbital Drop Shock Trooper to a Spartan Commander. Judging from new promo images of the series, her rise through the ranks has a little something to do with being pretty good at killing evil aliens.

The new series follows Marvel’s Halo Graphic Novel short story collection in 2006, the four-issue Halo: Uprising mini in 2007, the five-issue Halo: Helljumper in 2009, the four-issue Halo: Fall of Reach – Boot Camp in 2010, four issues of Halo: Fall of Reach – Covenant in 2011, and the four-issue Halo: Fall of Reach – Invasion mini in 2012.
