Looong time ago, back in 2010, perhaps even 2009 *doesn't remember*, I started working on this short comic: some of you likely remember the comic panel teasers and WIP pages I posted on here. Unfortunately, due to running out of steam/motivation/[insert excuse here], it never got finished and likely never will be considering it's been nearly 3 years since I last touched this thing (Jan '11, to be exact). This is mostly due to how my style/technique have changed since then: if I ever do decide to try to finish this thing it will likely be a complete redo (especially since I'm not fond of some of the design decisions I made back then).
Two of the pages though, 3 and 4 to be exact, were pretty much finished save for text, so I decided to put the text in and post them here (especially since 3 and 4 contain most of the meat of the comic itself). I was also fortunate that I had the text typed in on a 'mock up' layer, as the fic this comic was based on I lost when my harddrive died last year (along with so many other WIP fics *cries*). Some context is lost due to the missing unfinished pages, though pages 1 and 2 were textless chase sequence save for the last couple of panels on pg 2.
Some quick explanation stuff:
Red-brown Sangheili is Wohi 'Begor, while the other Sangheili is Joran, whom has been featured before in both fic and pic (Zendou: Duel Hearts for the former, slaskia.deviantart.com/art/Jor… for the latter). Joran is a Hashin, bounty hunter, basically. Unfortunately, I don't remember what 'koturn' means anymore (if I kept notes on it's meaning, it was lost with the fic): likely means 'criminal' or something similar though, considering the context. Also, comic takes place before Henun becomes Joran's partner, btw.
I have soo many projects in my WIP folder I don't have finished for the same reason .
Seriously? I knew it was coming early this year, but since I stopped going to Halo related sites due to how the community was acting, I forgot exactly when. *runs off to Amazon to get her pre-order in*
Mine is being shipped right now: should get it tomorrow.
From the book description though on Amazon...it seems like there's no focus at all on the Sangheili side of things like with the first two books. Guess we'll have to wait and see if that is the case...if not, not sure how much I'll be able to read, as I tended to not give too shits about the human side (at least in the case of the Cole Protocol). So far though, with both Glasslands and Thursday War I read it the whole way through....
To be fair, there's not really much more they can do with Jul pre-Halo 3: we already know what he's doing (building a fleet) and it would be kind of pointless to rehash it.
Rumors say the next one will be a lot more 'open', with Chief able to travel between different planets (about 8 if I remember right). I did hear from one source a while back that Chief's 'in hiding', but searching for some thing (if the sub-title of the game is 'the search for cortana' I'm going to smack 343 for the blatant Star Trek reference).
