Halo: Uprising by Brian Michael Bendis,Alex Maleev,Jose VIllarrubia



Ships from and sold by books-fyi. Brian Michael Bendis has shown over and over again that he is a terrific writer. But here, paired once again with the simply wonderful artist Alex Maleev (the two previously worked together on a classic Daredevil run), he wisely turns over several pages entirely to Maleev. Maleev takes the ball and runs with it. His artwork is stunning, capturing the cold void of space, the elegance of alien machinery, and the bleakness of futuristic American cities blitzed by warfare. He gives all of them a special flourish. On its own, Halo: Uprising is an intriguing yet ultimately unfinished read.

When I originally read this years ago I was upset that the book had little to do with Master Chief or any uprising of any sort. Years later, I read it again and where I would have given it a 2 stars I now give it 3.5.

First off, Alex Maleev is a great artist. His art isn't the first thing you would think of when you think of Halo but its a great treat for comic fans and he knows his craft well. Master Chief's movements and battles carry weight and have great movement while the characters on the ground are expressive and feel real.

The real problem with this book is that Bendis indulges a little too much in these characters.

The story centers around Cleveland, Ohio and the Covenant's search for something called the Key of Onasalan and bridges the cap between Halo 2 and 3. The idea behind it, and the plot themselves are great. I liked the characters and enjoyed seeing Master Chief slay some Covenant in droves.

The problems come with Bendis spending pages with his 2 main characters in thought about how they feel they've wasted their lives in light of what seems like their final hours. Way too much room is spent with this when it could have been done with less. As a four issue comic, there is no room for this internal exposition. Sometimes it feels like Bendis was just trying to get it done.

If you go into the comic knowing its not about Master Chief, the larger War or an Uprising you will enjoy the book.

Bendis, as he did with Daredevil, gets you to really feel for and like the main characters and provides a clever plot. Its a missed opportunity to tell a great Master Chief story but it does very well, what it aims to do.

This book was pretty interesting. It follows the Master Chief in a crazy, one-man-behind-enemy-lines mission and a guy who's brother tricks the covenant into looking for something on Earth that doesn't exist, to give the UNSC more time to make a move.

As a big fan of the Halo Universe, having read every novel/comic and played every game (still need to finish Halo Wars), seeing the war through the eyes of the regular citizen was interesting.

I feel like nothing was accomplished or resolved at the end. Yeah there was the main storyline with the love story and all but it was nothing worth really caring about. Seeing the Master Chief kick [...] as usual was pretty good and it was fun to see what he was doing when the Forerunner ship was on its way to Earth.

I know this review seems a bit flimsy, but I have only read it once and felt a little disappointed at the end. I will probably read it again, so STAY TUNED!

I enjoy Halo. I love graphic novels. Now, the two have been mashed together with a couple of legends in charge. Should be the perfect combo, no? That's what I thought when I pre-ordered it. Turns out it didn't meet my expectations, but it didn't completely destroy them either.

Chronology:
One thing that was good is that it created a connection between the story arcs in between Halo 2 and Halo 3. There was a bit of a gap in between those two games that left many of us wondering how we got to that opening cutscene in Halo 3. Then the gameplay started and I'm sure many of you, like myself, brushed that to the side and started to whip some covenant behind. To be honest, even after Halo 3 was finished, the story void between the two games didn't even enter my head. After all, if you are playing Halo for the story, your priorities are different from the typical gamer. All that said, when I heard about this novel being released my curiosity was piqued.

Writing:
I'm a little iffy on the writing. It started out fairly lacking and through the first half of the comic I felt that the writer (Bendis) rushed things to get this little project out of the way. It doesn't feel like a labor of love in the least. A few clichéd moments, a couple of them nearly sent a literal groan out of me. All in all, it feels rushed and less than what I've come to expect from Bendis. As we enter the middle of the story things pick up a bit. A few clichéd moments are still sprayed in, but not nearly as bad as the beginning. Bendis really lets his talent shine as we near the end. His foreshadowing techniques are impeccable, leaving you smiling and nodding once they are elucidated. This is subjective, but I think he did a great job with the ending. The story was shorter than expected, but satisfying, nonetheless.

Artistry:
This was done well. Not going to say it would be in the upper echelon of the graphic novel art, but definitely above average. The drawings have that dark gritty graphic novel feel that fans of the scene have grown to know and love. A few scenes seem rushed here also, and it makes me wonder how much time they were given to complete this project originally. That said, it is only a few scenes; the vast majority of the art is outstanding. I wouldn't say Maleev has outdone himself, but he did a quality job.

All in all, I wasn't blown away, but I wasn't disappointed. This is a step forward for video game stories in different mediums, and after the latest Uwe Boll flick, I think you will agree that it is a breath of fresh air.

Good book. I am enjoying the series.

Story did not make sense. Pictures were too dark to really make out detail. I got the impression that I was missing plot because I could not understand what I was looking at.

The characters in this book were really amazing. This story was really heartfelt with great action scenes. Loved every single page.
Akir
Great
The writing was very cheesy and doesnt fit in with within the parameters of the halo universe. Not worth the money. It cost more than the novels.
