Dark Horse reveals 'Halo: Initiation' comic miniseries

Stars Sarah Palmer, first issue on sale August 14

Dark Horse Comics is producing a Halo comic miniseries launching in August.


Titled 'Halo: Initiation', the series will be written by Halo 4 writer Brian Reed, and features art from Marco Castiello, known for his work on Secret Invasion: Front Line and Star Wars: Purge.

"Before she was a super-soldier 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," says the announcement. "See how she became the first Spartan-IV commander in this must-read series for fans of Halo 4 and the Halo franchise."

Dark Horse editor Dave Marshall said, "In Initiation, Brian and Marco are delivering an action-packed thrill-ride with a beating heart of authentic human drama."

The first issue will go on sale on August 14. Here's a sneak preview:
