The Return of an Old Friend

August 21st, 2021
After a decade of quietness, ZZoMBiE13 was inspired by the Halo Infinite playtest to submit a new entry for Another Halo Comic Strip. Here's what he wrote on DeviantArt:

Been a while since I made a Halo comic. Been a while since I was this excited about a game, if I'm honest. The Infinite test flight was a lot of fun and I got inspired. No idea if there will be more or not, but we'll see.

What are you waiting for? Go enjoy it! (Louis Wu 15:03:29 +0000)
