Official Marvel SummaryEdit
Orbital Drop Shock Troopers from the 105th Division—more famously known as the "Helljumpers"—have arrived at a distressed science colony on the planet Ariel. The only problem is the place is totally abandoned. As the Helljumpers investigate, trying to figure out what happened to the colonists, it becomes increasingly clear that the colony isn’t quite as empty as it seemed… the discovery of a large Covenant military presence raises more questions than it answers. Helljumpers "Dutch" and "Romeo" have penetrated farthest into the Covenant-held facility, and when all hell breaks loose, it will be the ultimate test of their fighting prowess—and their friendship.
Back Cover BlurbEdit
"Answering a strange distress signal from the colony planet Ariel, the 'Helljumpers' - the elite 105th division of the Orbital Drop Shock troopers - knew they were jumping into a dangerous situation. Upon arrival, the settlement of over four thousand people appeared to be no more than an abandoned shell of its former self, without a soul in sight...at least on the surface. Something's lurking deep beneath the ground of Ariel, and it would be just like best friends and squadmates Romeo and Dutch to get stuck right in the middle of it.
Written by comics legend Peter David (The Incredible Hulk, X-Factor) with artwork by breakout artist Eric Nguyen (Eternals, Gigantic), Halo: Helljumper shows what it means to be an ODST just before the events of Halo 3: ODST, the follow-up to the mega blockbuster game Halo 3.
- There is a notable reference to Shakespeare in this issue: when Romeo falls, and has Dutch grab him by the arm, the following page is a callout to Romeo and Juliet, down to the non-romantic level. (also note that in both cases, Romeo is the person under the "balcony".
