The hugely anticipated release of the graphic novel based upon the ground-breaking video game series Halo is upon us. Marvel Comics is pleased to announce the release of the all-new hardcover anthology, consisting of one lengthy story and three shorter stories set within the Halo universe—all adding to the Halo mythos. In addition, there is a collection of gallery pages featuring Halo inspired artwork from a variety of artists. By joining forces with an experienced industry veteran Marvel as the publisher and recruiting some of the comic industry's most talented artists and writers, Bungie Studios hopes not only to expand upon the incredibly popular Halo storyline but also to raise the bar and set a new standard for what a graphic novel can and should be. Merely telling a Halo story isn't in keeping with Bungie's tradition of setting new standards and being a pioneer in whatever medium is being used. To make the HGN the epitome of what a graphic novel should be, and to break out of the comic niche and propel this project into mainstream consciousness, we are working with some of the most prolific and exciting talent in the industry. Here is the current list of confirmed artists and writers working on the Halo Graphic Novel: • Cover: o Phil Hale, artist • The Last Voyage of the Infinite Succor o Simon Bisley, artist o Lee Hammock, writer • Second Sunrise Over New Mombasa: o Jean "Moebius" Giraud, artist o Brett Lewis, writer • Breaking Quarantine: o Tsutomu Nihei, artist and writer • Armor Testing: o Ed Lee & Andrew Robinson, artists o Jay Faerber, writer • Gallery Pages: o Doug Alexander o Rick Berry o Geof Darrow o Glenn Fabry o Scott Fisher o Sterling Hundley o George Pratt o Greg Staples o Justin Sweet o Tsutomu Nihei o John Van Fleet o Kent Williams o …and several Bungie artists About Halo The Halo saga was introduced to the world in November of 2001 with the release of the critically acclaimed "Halo: Combat Evolved" for the Xbox game console. Now, three years later, that game has established itself as one of the biggest franchises in gaming history with over 5.5 million copies sold world wide. In November of 2004, Halo 2 was released to overwhelmingly positive reviews and record breaking sales figures. The game earned the highest amount of pre-orders in gaming history, generated over $125 million during the first 24 hours of sales and has already gone on to surpass 6.5 million units sold. Halo 2 has brought the Master Chief and the world of Halo into the mainstream with everyone from ABC World News Tonight to CNN covering the impact the game has had on the entertainment industry. The Halo universe is as rich as any other science fiction universe in recent memory. In fact, some have even dubbed Halo as "Star Wars for a new generation."
