In defense of Halo Jones (not that Halo needed one) - I recently reread Marvano's comicbook adaptation of Forever War, comic I used to love when I was younger, and TBH third book of Halo Jones changed how I see Forever War... Forever.
While both (comic)books deals with similar themes (war, human condition), Halo just works better for me. Feels more organic I guess. I'm not a person who needs to care about characters, I don't need to like them, I need to belive them, and this is where Halo Jones wins. Forever War is recognized as one of the best sci-fi comics in Europe, great adaptation of even greater book, splendid war commentary... yet all of this works better (in terms of comics as a medium) in Book Three of Halo Jones and HJ is just nice, engaging character arc.
