Halo Graphic Novel And Soundtrack

Joystiq reports on the next two Halo projects, coming out before Halo 3/Forerunner. First up is the Halo graphic novel, with four main stories:

  • The Last Voyage of the Infinite Succor
    Art by Simon Bisley
    Story by Lee Hammock
  • Armor Testing
    Pencils by Andrew Robinson
    Colors by Ed Lee
    Story by Jay Faerber
  • Breaking Quarantine
    Art and story by Tsutomu Nihei
  • Second Sunrise Over New Mombasa
    Art by Jean “Moebius” Giraud
    Story by Brett Lewis

No big comic names (I only even recognized one), but the artwork looks solid (and not over the top, like many adaptations). Besides the four stories, it will contain about two-dozen original pinups by comic and Bungie artists. A collaboration between Bungie and Marvel, it is expected to ship as a 128-page hardcover in July, and, knowing Marvel, probably as a trade paperback next winter.

Bungie has more info, including the full artist list (again, no big names, and only two I recognize). Considering regular Marvel prices, I’d expect a 128-page hardcover to sell anywhere from $20-40, depending on quality.

Also coming down the pipe is the Halo 2 Original Soundtrack, Volume Two, coming on April 25. It has the music that wasn’t in Volume One. I don’t know how many people would be Halo obsessed enough to buy this (although I’m related to one), but yeah, I’m including an Amazon Associates box. Not that those ever work for me.
