Sean Mortensen was inspired enough by A Fistful of Arrows to compose a 10-track score for the comic. He even takes the story further and delves full-on into First Strike in the end:

Probably the coolest thing I've received in my email for quite some time!
  • Listening to: A Fistful of Arrows soundtrack
  • Reading: Glasslands
  • Playing: Fallout 3, Halo, GTA DLC

I wonder if I ask him to make music for my Halo Machinima that I'm working on. What do you think?

Unfortunately I don't think so D= Whilst the creation is awesome and could be done. 343 industries lack the power to create a full DLC add on to Reach =/ In fact If I recall someone told me they don't really have full claim to the rights of the game anyway? So presuming on that they wouldn't be able to sell a DLC to or through microsoft >~<

You know, as far as I'm concerned, AFOA is practically Halo canon already. It's only a matter of time before 343i makes it canon! :D :D :D

I have to say... The final four tracks from the set are my favorites. They're just so beautiful and fitting for the moment. The theme, in general, seems almost perfect for this story. A huge thumbs up for the soundtrack and a standing applause for Sean Mortensen.

Yeah, he made lots of good stuff. :) I like Outnumbered a lot, as well as the second movement of the first track. I also like all the rest, hah.

He actually sent me that first track early, before I had finished the comic, and I loved listening to that second part as I imagined the final pages.

Yeah, I easily imagined the scenes going through my head that they were set to match. Every one of them just seemed to match the scene to a near-perfect level. If I get that Flip-Styled Book when it comes out, I'll definitely be playing this music in the background.

Too true, too true. I know what you mean since you could say that I'm a story teller myself. Expect I write stuff instead of drawing them since I'm not good artist like you. But in a way you also keep it alive sine you "gave it life".

It's always a wonderful thing when art inspires more art (and I think it's very telling of your skills as an artist and storyteller when someone can compose a whole SOUNDTRACK to something you made). It's like a wonderful cycle of inspiration that leaves everyone the happier.

Needless to say I'm off to go listen to that soundtrack now! :3
