Alright, lets blow this Popsicle stand.
More news on Halo4 released this week. I'll admit the plot of Halo4 makes me exceptionally nervous. Apparently it's going to delve deeper into the Chief's character. I can only pray that 343i and me are on similar wavelengths as far as who the Chief is... because I feel like I know him pretty well already. Gotta trust his new masters though. If this comic ends up being rendered non-canon in any HUGELY significant way (because it's pretty non-canon already anyway considering how much lore and a couple full novels I'm ignoring as I write it) we'll state again what I said when Halo3 was coming out; this thing is its own little pocket universe. It is the square within the rectangle - it fits neatly in the real timeline for the most part but the timeline might not always fit into it... metaphors are hard.
