Overview

Halo: Uprising by Brian Michael Bendis

You are are Petty Officer Spartan-117, better known as the Master Chief. An enhanced super soldier fi tted out with the most advanced array of tactical weapons imaginable and a suit of assault armor that will protect you against the most lethal of attacks. Your target is the Forerunner Dreadnought. It is a command craft filled to the brim with hostile Covenant forces and heading for Earth to activate the world-shattering weapon known as Halo. Brought to you by two graphic-arts visionaries, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, the story of Halo: Uprising fills in the gap between the conclusion of Bungee's blockbuster video game Halo 2 and the record-setting entertainment juggernaut Halo 3.

The Halo Universe is a never ending expasion of the games. The Mini-Series Uprising is a perfect example of the expansion of the games, building a gap between the ending of Halo 2 to the beginning of Halo 3. I believe, 100%, that this series will please the most die hard Halo fan as all other Halo subjects have!

I cant wait till it comes out, you see I played Halo 1 then 2 and wondered what happened before they came back to Earth. So when I was wanting to know I started looking for some books about Halo but couldn't find any until I walked into Barns and Noble then I found it. Once I started reading it I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN, I MEAN IT WAS NONSTOP ACTION AND THINGS HAPPENED YOU WOULDN'T THINK WOULD HAPPEN. The first Halo book I read was Halo First Strike and well after that I continued to buy the Halo books. Each book is more surprising than the last too me. Which means to me this will be even better than the last, and for all those Halo game fanatics out there you will find out what the Master Chief looks like and who his family so called family is.

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.

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
