(slight language warning)

 

Embers is a concluding tale for the characters introduced in the original Phoenix Seven Halo comic.

 

A new page will go up every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

(At least that's the plan. I might also post on other dates if I have a decent-enough reason to.)

 

PSA: I'm working on building up a backlog so I can make regular updates, so I might miss a few days here and there later on.

 

--------------------------
Many years after the end of the Great War, the remnants of a ship crash on a Forerunner superstructure. Freed from cryosleep, the last surviving members of Royal Team, April, Kane, and Casey, emerge from the wreckage. Together the three Spartans explore the seemingly uninhabited structure for a means of escape. During their expedition, they reminisce about their fallen comrades, and how they ended up drifting through space.
--------------------------

You can read them all here on deviantART or individually below:

Enjoy, everyone!

Pretty good man! Your comics have always been so appealing to the eyes. I don't know how you do it!

It's been a while since I read the last part of your comic, so some of the references are going over my head... but besides that this is looking awesome so far, Spark! Keep up the good work! :D

I'm actually keeping it as reference-light as possible just in case anyone wants to skip the old work. More details about the ambiguous bits will becomes clear further on into the story.

 

I'm mainly doing this because I was never able to finish P7 properly. I had to resort to finishing in an abridged recap format due to a lack of manpower. Halo: Reach had it to where armor sets were blocked off for guest controllers, meaning unless I had an insane amount of time and money to spend on unlocking the armors for multiple accounts, I had to rely on volunteers to play the parts. That's not really a problem in Halo 4, since guest controllers can use any armor that the host player has unlocked. Therefore I should be able to keep a steady supply of comics for the next few months, unless IRL reasons pop, in which case I'll notify the delay here in the thread.

I had computer trouble over the weekend, so instead of Sunday/Monday's update, you'll now have Friday's intended update.

 

-added Page 12 of Chapter 1: Hereafter - "The Day They Started..."

 

-added PERSONAL LOG #1: B110-April

 

PSA: The Personal Logs are NOT side material. Treat them as you would a full fledged page.

 

That's it for Chapter 1! Coming up on Wednesday, the beginning of Chapter 2: Whispers!
