It was one year ago today that I posted the ending to A Fistful of Arrows. Thought I'd pay some respects to it. I really miss it! :)

This was made more than a year ago.

And I still follow Bungie's intentions, which was to keep his fate unknown.

She was a Spartan who died trying to protect Halsey before she was kidnapped in what eventually led to the CG Legends short (I can't remember it's name). You learn of this from one of the Adjunct sections in the reissued Halo novels.

If I remember correctly, I think Sheila survived on the Pillar Of Autumn (In a coma-like state) and was found by the chief. I think she ended up on Onyx with Fred, Kelly, (Another Spartan II?) and some Spartan IIIs.

I haven't read the books in a while, but I'm pretty sure Sheila was alive. But hey, I could easily be wrong.

Oh, yeah, absolutely love the comic by the way! I hope I can develop art and stories like this eventually.

I believe you're thinking of Linda. :) Way too many Spartans with common names these days, hah.

Glad you dug it!

Headcanon is always the most important canon. That's what canon is all about in the first place - trying to give the universe a consistency so that the stories ring true in your head. So if you find a story, even if it doesn't have Microsoft's stamp on it, and it feels 'real' to you, then it IS canon, in my book. :)

you have created a beautiful story with many interesting characters, worthy of becoming official canon for the halo universe.

Reach has fallen, but the heroes and heroines there will live on, in war relics, sites of battle, as well as accounts of their valor and courage.

would love to see forerunners and prometheans from you.

would also want to see a war sphinx fight.

I also loved your halo 4 speculation levels.

Well I'm not a huge fan of 343i's interpretations of the Forerunners/Prometheans so my Shield and Sword versions will be what I'll always imagine. A War Sphinx fight might be cool. :)

I would want to see what the war sphinx can do, and what weapons it has.

why so?

I love A Fistful of Arrows and downloaded the updated version with this new adjunct. If you ever sell a hardcover (or even softcover) of this graphic novel, I would totally buy it, just give me a heads up.

When I finished Reach, I wondered why Bungie would leave Jun's fate unknown. It is such a baffling decision as we know he must have died, not only because he doesn't show up in First Strike, but that thematically his death on Reach would match the noble sacrifice of the rest of his team.

But then I read A Fistful of Arrows and is it like Bungie deliberately left his fate open for you to make a tie-in. Your graphic novel is professional and so well done, not just in art but in story as well, it seems like an official project by 343. It really being a "fan" or "unofficial" graphic novel doesn't do it justice. I've seen professional tie-in graphic novels that you blow out of the water. A lot of love went into this and it shows. From the little details (the superintendent messages especially) and the references to many Halo games (Halo Wars' reactors on base to the ODST superintendent interface) as well as novels (Kalmiya's ethical bypass code and fate), you don't break any canon--a rarity (even some official Halo comics & graphic novel break bits of canon... well then again, the games do too sometimes).

Anyway, just wanted to show my appreciate of A Fistful of Arrows. It's my headcanon. Thanks for the story!

I'm really glad you did this. A Fistful of Arrows was a wonderfully written story; Jun hardly gets any love!

AFoF definitely inspired me to finish my own fan-fic about Jun. I only took screenshots and such that I've uploaded, but I could never find the inspiration to start writing it because I was afraid that I was not going to be accurate. Then I came across this story :)

Your artwork and story have definitely inspired me in more than one ways, and I think I speak for everyone here when I say, that you have inspired ALL of us. Keep it up, Sir! You will always have a fan in me :D
