Halo Comic


I mentioned it before, and now Marvel.com has the details of the Halo comic book. It is scheduled to be an ongoing title, and has some of Marvel's best talent on it. I'm not a Halo person, but those that are should really be excited about this. It's called "Halo: Uprising."

Here's the info from Marvel's site:

It was announced as an ongoing but the solicitation I saw online said "1 of 4" ????

Hmmm... I am pretty sure it's an ongoing. So, either there's going to be a mini-series too or there was an error in that online information.
