Collection of new stories based on the epic Halo universe coming this fall!
343 Industries and Dark Horse Comics are set to release a brand-new Halo® graphic novel anthology based on the massive video game franchise later this year.
Halo: Tales from Slipspace will feature all-new stories from some of the comic industry’s best—including Jonathan Wayshak, Eric Nguyen, Alex Irvine, Kody Chamberlain, Dave Crosland, John Jackson Miller, Jonathan Goff, Simon Roy, and Halo: Escalation writer Duffy Boudreau—as well as 343 Industries’ own Franchise Creative Director Frank O’Connor and Franchise Producer Tyler Jeffers. This action-packed anthology is essential reading for all Halo fans!
HFFL: I had the pleasure of meeting Tyler Jeffers back in 2012 at New York Comicon. Previous to working at 343, he was on the team at McFarlane Toys working with the Halo line. He definitely has a passion for Halo!
343 Industries and Dark Horse have also produced two blockbuster comics series with canonical story lines written by writers from the video game franchise (Halo: Initiation and Halo: Escalation) and will rerelease the graphic novel Halo: Fall of Reach in March.
Halo: Tales from Slipspace is in stores October 12, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop or through these fine retailers:
HFFL: Yes, I HIGHLY recommend buying from your local comic shop! Help support your local businesses!!
I for one am excited by the news of this anthology. I enjoy short stories. So long as 343 keeps continuity with these, this should be a successful line. Short stories help to bring new characters into the universe without having to have a multi-comic story arc. This works very well with minor characters. And who knows, they might just turn into more major characters depending on the reception from fans!
In any event, I plan on picking up this line for sure! How about you???
