COMICS: Marvel Announces Halo Ongoing Series

Superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev will kickstart the series based on the hit Xbox videogame.

Marvel has announced that, after the success of the Halo graphic novel they put out in the summer, they have plans for a monthly Halo comic book. Not many details have been dropped as of yet but it's official that writer Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers) and artist Alex Maleev (Daredevil) will handle the first few issues of the book.

I'm really interested to see what Marvel and Brian Michael Bendis can do with this title. I'm a huge fan of the Halo universe and have been hoping for an ongoing title since I read the graphic novel Marvel put out a few months back. How will Bendis handle the title though? Will the focus be on Master Chief? Maybe they'll decide to chronicle the life of a UNSC soldier. They might even decide to focus on the Covenant perspective. Whatever the case I'm sure Bendis will pull through with this title. I can't wait.

Nothing was mentioned about when the first issue would be released.
