Greetings, everyone and welcome to the May Update! There’s a little bit of bad news for our readers this time around. We’ll start with that then improve things from there. =)
The Bad – No Aeolian Hope in June
Don’t worry! This is a planned hiatus, not a case of us falling behind or losing commitment. Our artist, Brian Welker, is going on vacation for the month of June. His twin brother is graduating high school back in Missouri and he’s headed out to spend some quality time with said brother, his dad and some old friends. Brian hasn’t seen them since he moved out here to Oregon last fall, so it’s an exciting trip for him. Plus, he deserves a nice break after working so hard this year on his school and the internet’s #1 (i.e. only) Halo webcomic.
The website will still be active in June, we just won’t have any new pages to share. We’ll have the June Update to post, and I’ll be adding more content to the site. Specifically, I’ll be creating character profiles for Fireteam Memnon and the Miscellaneous UNSC Personnel groups from the Characters page. Fireteam Zephyr’s is already up, so if you liked that then you should enjoy these as well.
We’re still putting page 15 out next Friday, so there’s that to look forward to as well. In fact, here’s a little preview of the first two panels to hold you over.
Aeolian Hope is now two months into its run, with 14 pages completed and a 15th on its way next week. We’re slowly attracting more readers, and so far people seem to be enjoying it! Some exciting news? We’re nearing the halfway point of Issue 1! Once Page 17 is done we’ll be at the halfway mark, so thank you to everyone who’s been reading and encouraging us so far!
Featured Fan Project: The Fallen
When I started the Other Halo Fan Projects page last month, I knew from the start that I had to get The Fallen: A Halo Fan Film in there as soon as possible. Luckily for me, the creators agreed to let me feature their film this month! This amazing project is very close to completion and has a lot of teaser content already to get you excited. Hurry over there now and check out one of the coolest fan projects you’re ever like to see!
That’s all for May, see you next time!
