Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Fans of the Microsoft Bungie game Halo will get a treat in July. A number og highly talented artists and writers have teamed with Marvel entertainment to produce a new book about the award winning game.
From the Marvel website, “Marvel Comics, Bungie Studios, and Microsoft Game Studios are pleased to announce the creation of the Halo Graphic Novel. The Halo Graphic Novel (HGN) is an 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 will be 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.” See the remaining details of that announcement @ http://www.marvel.com/news/-1.376.
