    It can be a little hard to trust a large licensed property being turned into a comic book, and again we have seen a lot ofHalo content over the years, but this one earns my seal of approval. If you are aHalo fan, I believe it will earn yours, too. Read Full Review

    Halo: Collateral Damage #1 is a great start to a mission that changes a lot about the war between humanity and the Covenant. A good feeling overall to be back at a point where the rules of engagement were pretty simple. The Spartans are evolving in the way they battle, and the Covenant aren't ceasing in their relentless acts of aggression against the defenseless colonies. Read Full Review

    Being new to the Halo series, my first impression is a good one. There was much more of a story than I would have imagined and the art is really nice. If you're a fan of the game, action stories or space adventure comics, this is a quick series you might want to pay attention to. With only three issues in the story arc it's not a huge commitment, and from what I've read so far, it's worth it. Read Full Review

    The beginning of a solid sci-fi war story set in the Halo Universe, I want to see how it turns out. Read Full Review

    Although the artwork is well done and the colors are appropriate, "Halo: Collateral Damage" #1 is definitely written for established fans, leaving little room for people to join in on the franchise. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nathan Braudrick Jun 21, 2018

    While I am not the biggest Halo fan in the world, my 15-year-old son actually does really enjoy this series and has played all the titles thus far. He was excited to read this comic, but he came away disappointed. Among other things, he said that it was boring and that he didn't remember all the scientists and commanding officers in the UNSC being female. He remarked that it seemed to be familiar characters placed in an alternate Halo universe. If you're alright with that, then you might like this series, but it's not for me or my son, who is probably the target audience for this title anyway. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 10, 2018

    Halo: Collateral Damage #1 isnt awful, but its not good. The characters are dull, the action is undercooked, and the pacing is glacial thanks to numerous text dumps. I cant recommend this one. Give it a pass. Read Full Review

    Sadly, David Crosland's art is a mess. The Spartans look like Spartans, but the Covenant are almost unrecognizable at times, and the humans are equally rough looking. Read Full Review
