Halo: Uprising HC Tops the New York Times Graphic Books Best-Selling List
Marvel is pleased to announce that the Halo Uprising HC has debuted at number one on the New York Times Graphic Books Best Seller list! From the Eisner-winning team of writer Brian Bendis and artist Alex Maleev, witness the stunning limited series exploring the important events bridging the blockbuster Halo 2 and Halo 3 video games! As the Master Chief battles to defend Earth from the Covenant, forces of good and evil will be drawn to the mysterious Key. Fans won’t want to miss this red hot hardcover filled with the enthusiasm that makes the Halo series so compelling!
“Bendis and Maleev are at their finest in quieter, ground-level moments … Those who dig the series’ untold tales, though — the kind of stuff seen in 2006’s awesome Halo Graphic Novel — will enjoy this gripping new chapter.” — Corey Cohen, Official X-Box Magazine, July 2009
"Bendis and Maleev bring you a side of HALO that you haven’t seen before: more human than alien, with enough heart and action to satisfy all tastes."—Rene Rosa, UGO.Com
“Halo Uprising has turned out to be a pretty great damn comic… [it] will stand as a really stellar work of fiction in the Halo Universe,” exclaims Benjamin Birdie of ComicBookResources.Com. “Just as gripping as any great summer blockbuster.”
