Along with today's release of Halo: Spartan Assault for Windows 8, Dark Horse Comics, the folks behind the new comic series starring everyone's favourite Spartan IV, Sarah Palmer, have released a 10 page preview of the first comic due out in August.
You can view the preview by jumping over to the Dark Horse site, you do need to set up a (free) account, but it only takes a minute.
Marvel's efforts to bring the Halo universe into comics were a bit of a mixed bag, so it's nice to see it handed off to a fresh team. Dark Horse tend to publish more mature stories than Marvel, with the likes of Hellboy and Sin City being their main attractions. The difference in tone can be already be felt in this preview and it actually has me pretty hyped to read the rest of it.
Although Palmer has yet to appear so.. y'know..
