Combat Readiness: Halo Graphic Novel (2006)

So I know what you're thinking. Cobra, why are you reviewing a piece of Halo media that is over 11 years old (and will be 12 in July)? A review of Rise of Atriox seems like the more fitting Halo comic review since the five-issue series has concluded recently, but I feel like others have … Continue reading Combat Readiness: Halo Graphic Novel (2006)

Title Image Created by Polingo (@randomguy96024) / https://exotic-eloquence.deviantart.com/ Author's Note: At the beginning of the year, I mentioned how I would start doing articles that weren't just opinion or speculation pieces.

Halsey Log: God Bless The Child: The Lost Childhood of the Halo Series

A few weeks ago, I was substitute teaching a class of Kindergartners at a local elementary school. As we made it through the day learning about shapes, colors, numbers, and all the absolute foundational building blocks of knowledge, a thought began to dawn on me. That thought was, “These are the kinds of kids that … Continue reading Halsey Log: God Bless The Child: The Lost Childhood of the Halo Series

For the Love of Kilo-Five: 5 Positive Things I Liked from the Trilogy

No, the world is not coming to an end and Hell has not frozen over. While I personally have not been a fan of the Kilo-Five trilogy (Glasslands, Thursday War, Mortal Dictata) by Karen Traviss, it would be remiss of me to say that there is nothing good about them. Granted, my idea of good is likely … Continue reading For the Love of Kilo-Five: 5 Positive Things I Liked from the Trilogy

An Exploration and Thoughts on the Mantle of Responsability

Prelude  This article originally started out as a reflective piece that would have explained why I felt that the Precursors, that ancient race responsible for both seeding life in the Milky Way and potentially snuffing out life with the Flood, should have a minor role in the main Halo games. Due to the nature of such research, … Continue reading An Exploration and Thoughts on the Mantle of Responsability

343 Industries, it’s time for a reflection on Dr. Halsey

You would think that with a blog with the name Halsey's Journal would have a lot more articles dedicated to the doctor by now, but thus far I haven't had anything to really talk about. Most discussions about Halsey focus on the controversial aspects of the Spartan-II Program and her role in it, but forum … Continue reading 343 Industries, it’s time for a reflection on Dr. Halsey
