Written by PETER DAVID
Penciled by ERIC NGUYEN
Cover by ERIC NGUYEN
Helljumpers. The very name strikes fear in the hearts of even the most ruthless Covenant warriors. The Orbital Drop Shock Troopers of the 105th Division are the meanest, scariest, most battled-hardened marines the UNSC forces have to offer. No retreat. No surrender. The Helljumpers get the job done every time. Hoo-rah! But when the Helljumpers respond to an SOS call from the remote science colony Ariel, they stumble upon something that catches them off guard: The colony is deserted, seemingly abandoned by every man, woman and child who once lived there. The lone body on the planet’s surface, a communications officer, appears to have died of fright. The discovery of a large Covenant military presence raises more questions than it answers. And when two Helljumpers get cut off from the rest of their squad, they’ll have to battle through impossible odds to make it home. Can the marines uncover the mysteries of Ariel? And if so, can they make it off planet to tell the tale? If not, there’ll be hell to pay! Collecting HALO: HELLJUMPER #1-5.

Cover by GARY FRANK
Long ago, Kyle Richmond looked into the face of madness – now, it’s looking back at him. As a boy, Richmond – the man who would one day become Nighthawk – witnessed the senseless murder of his parents. There was no reason for their deaths, no provocation – they were just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was a traumatic event that has left him scarred for life – and turned him into a hero more feared than the criminals he polices. Now, it’s happening again…but on a much larger scale. The people of Chicago – men, women and children – are dying in the streets, victims of a monster whose thirst for slaughter cannot be quenched, whose soul is a bottomless void and whose scars run even deeper than Nighthawk’s.
And it’s flashing a killer smile. Collecting SUPREME POWER: NIGHTHAWK #1-6.
