Yep. What the title said. :)

There's a tease on my facebook page:

(I'd put it in here too, but I don't think you can attach art to these things)

Also, today happens to be the 1-year anniversary of posting page 1!

Glad to hear some news on this. Although the Adjuncts have been awesome, it seemed like your delivery of new material was at a fever pitch up until HaloFest. Then you dropped off the face of the planet, obviously doing work I'm sure.

Yes... A week or two after HaloFest I was little bummed out, almost intimidated by the awesomeness that I experienced. Didn't feel like I could Halo justice. Then I slowly got back to work.

Oh man, you shouldn't feel that way at all. This is just my subjective opinion, which may not mean much since I'm not a critic, but believe me when I say after just recently purchasing the graphic novels of Fall of Reach, HellJumper, Bloodline, and Uprising:

*Your artwork is on par, if not better (considering each graphic novel had their own style, Uprising's I wasn't too thrilled with, Fall of Reach's is ok, HellJumper's is ok, and Bloodlines is the the style I like),

*Your dialogue is a superior in most cases (I felt like I was reading High School kids' story for english when it came to HellJumper, Fall of Reach is good but essentially follows the novel, Bloodline is so-so with it's somewhat odd spartan dialogue) because it fits with the characters (Romeo and Dutch's friendship in the comics was nowhere to be seen in the game, Bloodlines spartan romance is highly out of context with spartans).

*Reading your work made me feel like it was an actual extension of the game. Some may not like that since you're perhaps not taking such creative risks with character portrayal, but to me staying within the boundaries of the characters already developed helped solidify their personas, if that makes any sense.

*Your extensive use of the materials present in the universe; the myriad of ships and NOT just frigates, the different types of personnel, a long with your creative introduction to new materials that flow with the universe (such as the Quezon Super and the city of Quezon itself, your vision of CASTLE Base), exceeds what I've seen in the other graphic novels or at least is on par.

So you shouldn't feel this way at all. I remember looking through your past artwork of the Spartans in Ghosts of Onyx compared to now, you have really come a long way in your artwork in such a short amount of time. It was great before, but it's superbly awesome now.

You have only one way to go from here on out, and that is up. You have so much potential here, it's crazy. I can only imagine what you could envision with stories, even new characters, something we haven't seen yet, like ONI Beta-5 Operators (Something I WISH they would've included in Reach a long with other types of personnel not seen other than the usual Army-Marines/ODST; since they included the armor), or the like.

Don't be intimidated by it man. They have so many things they could've done better in the novels, in canon, in the graphic novels, etc. Right now they're releasing "Data Drops" on waypoint just to cover their butts on the severe canon conflicts Bungie threw out with Halo Reach in relation to Fall of Reach, so that lone tells you they're certainly FAR from perfect.

Just remember where Frank O'Connor came from and now look where he is. From magazine editor to content manager to Franchise Development Director of 343, the face of halo essentially.

I've taken a while to reply to this because it was a very moving and motivating comment and I couldn't (and still cant) think of a good enough response to it. But regardless, thanks. :)

As for Frankie, I'm actually trying to not think about him at the moment, heh. I got to meet him briefly and he is now in possession of a printed Fistful copy (well 3/4 of it). And once this thing is done in the next few days, I have to email him...

I hate ends, they make me sad >< Even if it turns out great, I'm sure this end will make me sad. Great work and thanks for giving this to the halo community. :)

BTW, have you ever made contact with Halo Waypoint team? I'm sure your story could be post on Waypoint.

Waypoint has highlighted the comic on the website a few times, but not on the console version.

I'd actually love to work for them, and possibly bring this story, or maybe future stories into Halo's canon.

As for the ending. I think it will be fulfilling, especially if you're familiar with the whole comic and understand the story it was trying to tell. Although it does indeed attempt to say what happened between seeing Jun and Halsey leave for Castle Base and then seeing only Halsey at Castle Base, I think the main story has been "Who is Jun and what problems does he face and how does he overcome them?"

You've perfectly answer this question in your comic, at least this is what i've understood.

A question still remains: how many pages will it last? I mean how many pages will you upload at once. You can't make an end in one page can't you? ^^

And do you have other halo projects?
Reply
:iconleviwastaken:
LeviWasTaken Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Once I've posted the remaining pages the complete comic will be 77 pages long + a credits spread with its own artwork.

There's also two more adjuncts.

At the moment, there's no other planned Halo projects, but you never know... :)
