Issue 18 preview was pretty neat, should be interesting to see how it turns out.
Ok so on halopedia apparently they have put up issues 21-24 with only a slight description for 21 but issue 24 comes out in november which to me doesn't make sense since halo 5 comes out in october

The comics come out once a month. So unless they decide to switch to a bi-weekly schedule near the end, issue 24 would come out in November. Besides, if you think that's bad, just remember Silentium and Mortal Dictata came out long after Halo 4, which they were suppose to set things up for (Mortal Dictata came out a little over a year later and Silentium came out four months later).
It just doesnt make sense to me I understand why mortal dictata and silentium came out long after halo 4 but these comics are directly tied into halo 5especially the absolute record arc so idk why they would have it release a month after halo 5 comes out

*Shrugs* At least we'll know most of the story by the time 5 comes.
I don't think Mortal Dictata did anything to set up h4.

Even Osman succeeding Maggy was set up beforehand.

Yeah, but we didn't know that until it was released.

It just happens to be doing that at the moment. I think the point of the comic is to continue the story. And Halo 5 won't be the end story for halo.

I just checked the info on halopedia, and there's no info on the plot of issue 24, so maybe issue 24 is an epilogue of some sorts. If it's the conclusion it will get spoiled by Halo 5 then.

That helmet looks epic. I wonder who that Spartan is. :D
That is from official source of dark horse right? That Spartan looks like then one on Locke's team. Probably Tanaka..

Well, it isn't Palmer, anyone from Majestic, nor Locke (nor anyone from his team), because the armor is none of their's (just look at the shoulders), so who knows.

I'm more curious as to who the "powerful new combatant" is. I'd like to assume it's not talking about the Sentinels (though I am glad to see they're going to be in the fight as well!).

I'm pretty sure that's the white spartan from Locke's team. The armor is identical if you look at it and compare them.

Same shoulder pads, same foot armor, same blue streaks, same antenna, etc. Hell, the blue outline on the shoulders are identical. And I'd bet my money on it being Tanaka meaning the red spartan on Locke's team is very likely Macer.

I don't see any similarities. And I doubt both Macer and Tanaka are here, with Romeo and Buck being way more likely. I do not think it is anyone from Locke's team.

Then you're not looking hard enough because they're clearly there. Both of them have the exact same shoulder pads. Both of them have the exact same blue streaks on their armor (the outlines of said blue streaks are the exact same on the shoulder pads). Both of them have the exact same antenna. And both of them have the exact same color armor.

I decided to highlight a few of the similarities.

If you still can't notice the similarities then I can't really help you. Either way, Buck wanted time away from Romeo and his old squad in New Blood, so I don't think it's at all way more likely. I think it's much more likely that it's Locke, Buck, Tanaka, and Macer. It fits with 343 saying there would be plenty of strong female characters in Halo 5 and it would also be two males and two females which would mirror Blue Team and I think that's what 343 is going for.
Yeah, same shoulder pads, helmet, blue streaks, etc. I wonder who this Spartan is.

Maybe it's still time to introduce a new Spartan during the "Absolute Record" arc...

No need to be rude about it, I just do not see the similarities. First, the helmet looks way off. It may share an antenna but not much else. The shoulder pads are completely different, with the top part of the comic one being more flat with a dip in the middle, while the one from the Halo 5 Guardians poster has a much different design.
And Macer seems like a bad choice to add, because she was not even part of the UNSC / ONI two years before this. It just does not add up.
I think that Buck and Romeo will not be separated, even if he wanted some time apart. He requested that they be transferred to a new team where he was not the leader. That seems to hint that they would be together still.

Blue team has two female members, and having Tanaka will be a third. Halsey a possible fourth. Plus I am sure there will be more. (Petra hopefully? :D )
