Dark Horse Comics artist Mike Hawthorne posted some cool Halo sketches he did at part of early tryout for the upcoming Halo: Initiation mini-series.

“Months ago I was in talks with Dark Horse to draw the comic. I already had several projects on my plate, from both publishers in the US and France, so the timing was really bad for me. It didn’t work out for several reasons, but it was fun to take a shot at the characters.

I have to admit, I’ve never played the game. So it took a lot of sketching to get familiar with the HALO characters. Here were some of the final designs I did.” -Mike Hawthorne

As announced earlier this week, Dark Horse Comics is going to do a Halo comic mini-series called Halo: Initiation. The series will be written by Brian Reed and the art will be done by Marco Castiello, who pencilled Knight Errant: Escape and Purge: The Tyrant’s Fist. 

Before she was a supersoldier 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! See how she became the first Spartan-IV commander in this must-read series for fans of Halo 4 and the Halo franchise!

“It’s really exciting to work with Dark Horse in continuing the Halo story in comics. After Halo 4 and Spartan Ops, fans wanted to know more about the origins of the Spartan-IV program and Sarah Palmer in particular. So it’s great fun to be able to grant those wishes with a partner like Dark Horse.” -Brian Reed

Halo: Initiation #1 will be out August 14th. You can check out a preview of the interior art on Wired.com which looks pretty good.
