HALO: Lone Wolf comic series concludes today!

Join in for the thrilling conclusion of HALO: Lone Wolf, as issue #4 appears on shelves today. It has been a super fun journey to write for the Halo universe and witness fan reactions. Here is the final (sniff, sniff) synopsis:

In her final confrontation with the rogue scientist Dr. Chen, Spartan Linda-058 and her AI companion find themselves in a race against time to end the threat posed by the disenfranchised doctor and evacuate the endangered civilian settlement before Covenant forces overwhelm them all.

Thanks to fellow collaborators, who made the book look and feel awesome!

NCBD! HALO: Lone Wolf #3 comic out now!

The penultimate issue of the HALO: Lone Wolf comic book series comes out today from Dark Horse! If you’ve been reading along, and really, why wouldn’t you?, you’ve been following Spartan sharpshooter Linda-058 as she infiltrates a group of humans who feel abandoned by the UNSC. With Covenant forces closing in on their location, Linda must rally the human settlers under a single essential cause: protect an AI that contains the bulk of human history. Spoilers after the jump."Halo: Lone Wolf #3" preview

As new threats rise, the legendary supersoldier sees her mission parameters shift and finds that she will need help from the very man she was sent to kill.

HALO: Lone Wolf #3 was brought to you by me, Anne Toole (W), and Kieran McKeown (P), JL Straw (I), Dan Jackson (C), Christian Ward (Cover), and your local comics shop! Check out a preview here.

Is it just me, or does it somehow seem fitting that a company named Dark Horse is putting out a comic called Lone Wolf?

HALO: Lone Wolf comic out today!

Halo: Lone Wolf #1New year, new comic! If you love you some science fiction set on distant planets, or enjoy the Halo video games, check out Halo: Lone Wolf. I wrote this four-issue comic book series from Dark Horse and 343 that starts with issue one today! You’ll find it wherever fine comics are sold.

Halo: Lone Wolf follows Spartan Linda-058 alone on a covert mission. Her skills in infiltration and marksmanship make her perfect for the high-stakes mission to end the threat posed by a wanted scientist on a distant planet. With only an ONI-assigned AI at her side, Linda must fight through both the dregs of the Covenant and the hostility of a lost human settlement to stop the rogue scientist in his tracks.

The newest entry in the Halo comics franchise is written by Anne Toole (Horizon Zero Dawn, The Witcher) with art by Kieran McKeown (White Canvas) and JL Straw (Back to the Future), colors by Dan Jackson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Call of Duty: Zombies), and covers by Christian Ward (Quantum Age: From the World of Black Hammer, Young Avengers).

Join the Dark Side at LA Comic Con

Sounds like an invitation to a Sith bar, but in fact I’m inviting you to join me and several other fabulous humans (not to imply I’m one of them) TODAY to discuss the dark storytelling at LA Comic-Con. Here are the deets:

Women On The Dark Side
3PM in Room 308
Sunday, October 28, 2018
Always a popular panel, this panel features women who challenge the convention of what women “should” create. Challenging, complex, and sometimes controversial, these women speak for those who aren’t always about glittery vampires and sparkly unicorns. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that)

Featured panelists are:
Susan Lee (@LifeOnItSide) – “Wraith of Love”, “Shadowed Doorways”
Maria Alexander (@LaMaupin) – “Snowbound”, “Mr. Wicker”
Dr. Suzana E. Flores – “UNTAMED: The Psychology of Marvel’s Wolverine”
Anne Toole – “Curse of the Pharaohs/Assassins Creed”, “Mine! anthology)

Moderator – Barbra Dillon, Fanbase Press

See you there, I hope!
