In all the excitement over Halo 5 Guardians being released, I nearly forgot there was another issue of Escalation that came out too.
Halo Escalation #23 takes place just prior to the events of Halo 5. So this is a MUST, in my opinion, to own. It helps explain some of the campaign of Halo 5 from a viewpoint we only glimpse otherwise.
“The Absolute Record: Part 5”—The penultimate chapter of the battle for the Absolute Record . . . and the future of mankind! The epic six-part sequel to Spartan Ops continues here in this must-read issue byDuffy Boudreau (BlackAcre) and Douglas Franchin (Person of Interest).
Here are the first 6 pages for preview (as allowed by Darkhorse)
As issue 23 is the 5th of a 6-part story arc, next issue is sure to bring this to a thrilling conclusion. Given the ending of issue 23, I think it’s safe to say we’ll see more of a sort of prequel story to Halo 5 Guardians that leads right into the game. That’s my hope anyway.
