Dark Horse Previews for 1-8-14: Halo, Star Wars

I took a gander at a few things coming out from Dark Horse Comics on January 8th, 2014.

One preview was a Halo title, the other, a Star Wars title.

Halo Initiation from Dark Horse

Before she was a supersoldier defending humanity as part of the Spartan-IV program, Sarah Palmer was an ODST—Orbital Drop Shock Trooper—carrying out the most dangerous missions behind enemy lines!

(Light SPOILERS Ensue)

It's a time without Master Chief, and humanity must rally on against its threats, without Spartans. 

But in this edition, Sarah Palmer, as she drops planet-side to save a high ranking dignitary and a package he's carrying.  Her actions getting her noticed, to become a new Spartan.

In this issue they show her go through the process, albeit, quickly, of her becoming what makes a Spartan.

Three weeks of surgeries and improvements and a few new Spartans are immediately put to the test.

And this is the origin of Sarah Palmer and the Spartan-IV's.  A good, fun read into the new chapter of these new Spartans.
