Did anyone else get this? I picked this title up because it's Halo. Normally I stay clear of Bendis books (except for Ultimate Spidey, which suits his style PERFECTLY) because I don't enjoy them. But I figured how can you go wrong with the Master Chief shooting up the Covenant? Well Mister Bendis managed to find a way to make Halo uncool (for me anyway). He gives an unnamed guy who just happens to know what is going on and he talks in the regular Bendis format. After reading the issue, I'm glad that it is only a four issue miniseries. The art was pretty decent, except for the chick that shows up, she was just designed WAY to wierd for the Halo world, where everyone else seems to look normal. Well maybe he'll surprise the heck out of me and amaze me in the remaining 3 issues. Anyone else have any thoughts on the book?

I posted a while ago about how much I thoroughly disliked this book, but nobody responded. Why take a story about Master Chief and turn it into a story about some lame civilian that nobody cares about and wont be in the game. And Master Chief gets totally punked as he goes in guns blazing and is pumped full of 4 fuel rod shots (which would tear him apart in the game or in the books). I thought the art was horrible and not fit for the halo world. I wouldve prefered a more realistic style like hitch or mcniven. Hopefully we get more scenes with Master Chief next issue.
