Collateral Damage: New Halo Comic Series Will Feature The Master Chief

by Hannah Means Shannon

Dark Horse have had a close relationship with Halo for some time. Now they’ll be publishing a new comic miniseries based on the Master Chief’s role in the history of the franchise.

Dark Horse Comics and 343 Industries will be creating a three-issue miniseries Halo®:  Collateral Damage-A Master Chief Story. This miniseries takes place shortly after the events of the Halo: Fall of Reach comics.

Alex Irvine (Halo: Rise of Atriox #4, Iron Man: The Rapture, Dark Sun) returns to the Halo universe as writer and is joined by artist Dave Crosland, colorist Leonard O’Grady, letterer Simon Bowland, and cover artist Zak Hartong.

According to Dark Horse, Halo: Collateral Damage, 

…follows the Master Chief and Blue Team as they are deployed by the UNSC to an unstable colony world. Their mission: terminate the Covenant’s efforts to uncover something ancient and powerful beneath the planet’s surface. But as the mission takes a turn for the unexpected, the Spartan strike team realizes that the stakes of their mission are higher than they realized and they’ll have to rely on each other and a small group of human rebels to survive!

Halo®: Collateral Damage #1 (of 3) goes on sale June 06, 2018 and is available for preorder at your local comic shop.
