I am a huge fan of the Halo series, I have played every installment, and own almost every book, currently I own all of them except for the graphic novels prompting me to put this on my christmas list, so here I am owning the book, I have finished it, and well I am sad to say I am a bit dissapointed. First off the art is average, its not great, its not poor either, its just on par one could say, despite this every once in a while I would come across a one or two page ''Splash'' panel that I would find somewhat cool, but aside from that the art is overall quite unremarkable.
Sure it would be cool to have these panels framed as lithographs but a couple good panels, dosnt make average art great. Now the story on the other hand is quite below average, it is split between the narratives of The Master Chief, a hotel concierge called Ruwan and his popstar friend.
Now the Ruwan/Popstar storyline I am sorry to say is unbelievable boring,
mutiple times while reading I would get actually slightly interested by the exploits of the Chief, only to turn the page and find the book back to the boring Ruwan. Personally if Brian had wanted to make a good comic, he should have just had Alex draw page after page of The Chief blowing the crap out of covenant eye candy, with light dialogue. Now sure this might have not been the most sophisticated way to tell a story, but it would have been much better than the stupid Ruwan storyline, that makes the Chief storyline feel as if it were tacked on as an afterthought, something which should be the other way around. Now despite all this if you enjoy the halo universe you will probably enjoy this book just dont come expecting much, and you will be satisfied - CM

    IT was a good read, for us Halo Buffs

    The plot is not something you look for expectantly from literature related to video games. They did do a better than average job on that front in this series. What really counts is the art, and the details especially of the Covenant forces. Everything looks bad ass. I personally did enjoy the rendering of future contemporary cities. I always try to look for that in sci fi lit. and see if it's something that would stand up to "reality", or if it came out of George Lucas' communal Hukkka.
