Halo: Uprising

Halo: Uprising

Genre: Licensed, Sci-fi

The alien horde known as the Covenant have invaded (unusual because they usually completely destroy) the Earth city of Cleveland, looking for a mysterious artifact known as the Key of Onsanalan.

As they claim the city’s inhabitants as prisoners of war, the story centers on a seemingly ordinary young man, a hotel concierge, who holds the secret of the Key. Will he share his knowledge to save his life, or use the secret to save his city?

At the same time, fan favorite super-soldier Master Chief launches a one-man effort to keep the aliens from their ultimate victory—a noble goal, but one that’s hard to meet once you get captured!

Linking the fictional narratives of the Halo: 2 and Halo: 3 video games, this series is destined to be a hit, if for no other reason than superstars Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev are at the creative helm.

From his secret Rocky Mountain refuge 9200 feet above the world, Joe indulges his passion for comics and other alternate realities, including his own. A long-time writer for ComicBase, his name is a veritable pun generator. You can e-mail your questions and suggestions to Joe at
