Dark Horse Entertainment has announced that it will be producing a new Halo comic. Titled Halo: Initiation, this series will be written by Halo 4 writer Brian Reed and features art from Marco Castiello (Secret Invasion: Front Line, Star Wars: Purge).

“Before she was a super-soldier defending humanity as part of the Spartan-IV program, Sarah Palmer was an ODST – Orbital Drop Shock Trooper – carrying out the most dangerous missions behind enemy lines,” says the announcement. “See how she became the first Spartan-IV commander in this must-read series for fans of Halo 4 and the Halo franchise.”

“In Initiation, Brian and Marco are delivering an action-packed thrill-ride with a beating heart of authentic human drama,” said Dark Horse editor Dave Marshall.
