The Eisner Award-winning team of writer Brian Bendis and artist Alex Maleev are back to bring you one of the most anticipated new series of the year-Halo: Uprising! Based on the hit video game series, but perfect for fans both new and old, Halo: Uprising #1 begins the tale of the heroic Master Chief's struggle to reach Earth before the evil Covenant's engines of war get there first! Set in the time period between Halo 2 and Halo 3, Halo: Uprising answers all those questions that fans have been asking for years, and introduces new characters into the Halo mythos!

"It was an honor to be asked to add something to the Halo pot," said writer Brian Michael Bendis. "To bring to Halo what the graphic novel brought, some humanity and perspective-something you can't get in the game based solely on the nature of the different mediums. Alex and I also have tried to create a juicy sci-fi story that even if you don't play or know anything about Halo, you could buy this and enjoy it just on its own character and storytelling momentum. But if you are a Halo die-hard you will find connections, characters, and references to not only the three Halo games, but the novels as well."

Fans have fallen in love with Halo's mix of intricate storytelling, stunning visuals and intense action, all of which Bendis & Maleev bring to Halo: Uprising #1. If you're looking to quench your thirst for authentic Halo action and thrills, then don't miss this bold new limited series!
