Dark Horse Comics with 343 Industries recently announced its release of Halo: Rise of Atriox, a new anthology comic series based on the Halo Wars 2 video game.
The first issue of Halo: Rise of Atriox finds Atriox, who is still a member of the massive alien collective known as the Covenant, leading his Brute brethren into an all-out assault on a UNSC outpost. Leader and creator of the Banished, Atriox is a fearsome warrior who rose to power by his charismatic personality and talent for shrewd strategic planning honed during his time-serving as a member of the Covenant.
This five-chapter anthology collects stories by acclaimed comics creators Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Conan the Slayer), Jody Houser (The X-Files: Origins, Faith), John Jackson Miller (SMITE: The Pantheon War, Halo: Tales from Slipspace), Alex Irvine (Hellstorm: Son of Satan, Dark Sun: Ianto’s Tomb), Claire Roe (Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, Saltire: Annihilation), Josan Gonzalez (Weird Detective), Jonathan Wayshak (Call of Duty: Zombies, Halo: Tales from Slipspace), and Tristan Jones (Rebels, Aliens: Defiance).
The Halo: Rise of Atriox first issue is written by Cullen Bunn with Claire Roe as the artist, Jeremy Colwell as the colorist, with the cover art by Aleksi Briclot (The Art of Remember Me, Conan: Road of Kings).
Halo: Rise of Atriox #1 is set to arrive at comic stores and Dark Horse affiliated digital outlets on August 2, 2017.
