I have a question: is this Cannon or fan-made? Either way, it's kick-ass!

It is fan-made, but it got around so much in its hey day that Bungie and 343i have referenced it on occasion, sometimes in jokingly, subtle ways. 343i's cannon fodder a couple of weeks ago, for example:

"...the details of his survival and escape from Reach remain buried under fistfuls of black ink and red tape"

That's what I like to hear. :D

Good luck, if only all comics were this skillfully drawn. I've seen quite a few examples of horrible ones that always makes me wonder why they don't hire pros like yourself rather than some clutz who doesn't even know what the characters are supposed to look like. :/

hey Bro! How long it took you to make the whole book approximately? Considering the process of creating the script, storyline and painting... because it is severely ​​perfect compared to the original made by 343i people. 0.0

It was about a year from beginning to end, though I was doing a few other projects inbetween pages here and there, like Shadowrun jobs and the Anubis comic, so it's hard to say how much pure time it took.

Comics like these often say "Suggested for mature readers."

I read somewhere that Jun probably died because in Halo: Ghost of Onyx I think? They stated that there was a body of a dead SPARTAN on the ground underneath CASTLE base where Halsey was trapped at...

There is an Adjunct article at the end of the Fall of the Reach that folks have misunderstood. It wasn't Reach, Castle base, and definitely not Jun. It was actually on the planet Miridem, and concerning the Spartan Sheila, and setting up the events for the Legends short: The Package.

It's a big misconception and many folks continue to spread the misconception like a game of telephone. :)

I can't believe no one got the references in the cover.

Let's start with the prices:

$343.04 US
343 = Guilty Spark
04 = Spark's the monitor of Installation 04

$2401.05 CAN
2401 = Penitent Tangent
05 = Penitent is the monitor of Installation 05

The "7"s above the prices is Bungie's favorite number. The numbers "0 and "2" and the bar code could also be a reference to something but I dunno yet.

LeviWasTaken Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Nice job! The 0 and 2 might mean something, but I don't remember. I used this bar code on the back of A Sangheili's War Is Never Over comic as well.

There were a few on Leviathan.Bungie.Org that have gotten some of the references too.

Bungie Studios is also in the comic... oh and a certain Forerunner gas-mining/Flood-research facility is also hidden in the comic somewhere where you would least expect it. No one has found that one yet!

Ask Bungie if you're allowed. :ohnoes: This is beautiful!

No, sorry, not allowed. :) Though, I have shown the comic to 343 Industries, the people at Microsoft in charge of the Halo IP. If there's enough demand for it, and they notice it though, who knows why might happen? :)
