WE ARE NOT OBSOLETE With society still reeling from the Aug
incident – the event which caused millions of Augmented to attack
their ‘natural’ counterparts – anti-Aug sentiment is at an all-time
high. Now viewed as a threat to humanity, transhumans have been
corralled into slum-like ghettos, leading to a rise in terrorist
activity. In the city of Prague, Adam Jensen readies for his first
mission with Task Force 29, an Interpol-funded counterterrorism unit.
But being augmented himself how will the agent handle himself when
faced with the grim reality of a mechanical apartheid? “Captures the
distinct cyberpunk aesthetic of the games.” - IGN “Simply stunning.”
– Flickering Myth “Makes for some great social commentary.”
As TF29 heads into the Glasshutte for a final confrontation with the
pro-aug forces, two questions remain in Adam Jensen's mind: what will
this mean for the future of augmentation and will the real
conspirators ever come to light?
The Master Chief and Blue Team are deployed by the UNSC to Alpha
Corvi II, a precarious human colony world, seeking to halt the
Covenant's efforts to uncover something hidden below the planet's
surface. Before they were legends in the Halo universe, they were
soldiers on the front lines. Alpha Corvi II is under a full-scale
attack by humanity's newfound enemy, the Covenant. While most of the
UNSC's forces have been ordered to defend the colony's primary city,
a Covenant strike team has infiltrated a small mining settlement.
With resources limited, the UNSC sends the Spartans--the Master Chief
and Blue Team--to neutralize the alien threat and discover what
they're after. The Spartan strike team quickly finds out that they
will have to rely on each other and a small cadre of human rebels in
order to survive and complete their mission. Writer Alex Irvine
(Halo: Rise of Atriox, Halo: Tales From Slipspace) and artist Dave
Crosland (Halo: Tales From Slipspace) lead us on a thrilling mission
from the early days of the three-decade long Covenant War.
