    In the past, we have seen several graphics novels become great video games, as well as movies. However, it's much rarer for a great video game/movie to become a comic book. Which is why the hardcover Halo graphic novel was so surprising. It sold extremely well, and because of this, Marvel has announced they will begin making a Halo comic series. While this in itself is good news for Halo fans everywhere, there's an amazing twist: the comics will be done by Marvel legends Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev. For those of you not into the comic book world, Bendis is behind such titles as Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers, as well as Mighty Avengers. And when Maleev hopped onboard the Daredevil project between issues 26 and 81, sales of the Daredevil series soared. There was no word as to when we can expect to start seeing these comics.

    I for one, don't care. I really don't think Halo deserves everything that has spawned from it. It's a fun game to a point I will admit, but really doesn't just come across as something that deserves to hav a movie(cancelled now as I understand it) and huge a immature fan base, or friggin comic books.

    I have the hardcover Halo Graphical Novel :)

    Bought it because Tsutomu Nihei (manga artist) made one chapter of it. Couldn't care less about the other two Comic artists, didn't read their chapters >_>

    I like playing it LAN style.


    But not much else.


    After a few beers Sunday I beat a friend that kicks my arse on X-box, 25-3. His three kills were as I was laughing so hard I couldn't play. Pistol+Sniper in blood gulch = death to you.


    But back on track, the RVB series is funny enough. But if there is a demand.......
