Marvel Comics is pleased to announce that the hotly anticipated Halo: Uprising #1 (of 4) has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level) after only 24 hours! Featuring the Eisner-Award winning team of writer Brian Bendis and artist Alex Maleev, this limited series bridges the popular Microsoft video games Halo 2 and Halo 3. If you’ve been wondering where the Master Chief has been and what the Covenant have planned, this limited series has the answers! Retailers all over the country are reporting that like with Dark Tower, Anita Blake and The Death of Captain America, Halo: Uprising is attracting new faces and new readers to stores, seeking out this critically acclaimed series!
“My reaction is: yay!” exclaimed Brian Bendis when told of the sell-out. “I’m so, so happy for Alex Maleev and Matt Hollingsworth who poured every ounce of energy into this book that any comic fan could hope to get from their favorite artists. And our editor Ruwan who made all this happen on numerous levels! Issue two is even better-and that’s a promise.”
Now that the Covenant have arrived on Earth, it’s up to the Master Chief to find a way to stop them-if they don’t find the Key first! Don’t miss Halo: Uprising #2 (of 4), continuing this red-hot limited series and deciding the fate of planet Earth!
