The Halo Waypoint blog has updated with more information on the upcoming project between Marvel Comics and 343 Industries they teased earlier this month. As some of you may have deduced, the project is a comic series which tells the story of Halo: Fall of Reach. It's being drawn by Felix Ruiz and written by Brian Reed who, according to Wikipedia, was the lead designer on Ultimate Spider-Man.
Check out that kid on the cover. I'm told he's John. Safe bet considering the MJOLNIR armor in the background. Assuming that's right, this is the first, maybe second, time we've seen Master Chief's face. Interesting that we're only shown him as a child, like they're still flirting with the idea that making a concrete stand on what he looks like will disassociate a player used to placing their own features on the superman.
Oh, and the thing is being referred to as a "graphic fiction event" which might be one of the most pretentious things I've heard in a long time. The event in which fiction gets graphic will take place this fall, reportedly in September.
