Marvel and 343 Industries have announced the September 2010 release of Halo: Fall of Reach "Boot Camp #1", a graphic fiction based on the New York Times best-selling novel, Halo: Fall of Reach.

Fan-favourite writer Brian Reed and artist Felix Ruiz team-up to adapt the novel and bring the world of Halo to life like you've never seen it before.

Before he was Master Chief, he was John - a boy stolen from his parents and conscripted into the SPARTAN-II program on the fortress world of Reach. But as the galaxy falls into dark times, one doctor must pay a terrible price to keep humanity from being destroyed.

"We're excited to bring this gripping novel to life in graphic fiction form," said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Marvel Senior Vice President, Development & Planning, Print, Animation and Digital Media. "The Halo universe has produced some of the most compelling science fiction action epics of the century and Fall of Reach is right up there. If you've never experienced Halo before, this is a great place to jump on board."

Halo: Fall of Reach is scheduled for release in September, presumably around the time the game hits on September 14.
