Wondering what happens to Master Chief after the events of Halo 3? He got old. And sick.
This great piece of fan art by Chris Pollitt, put together for a Comicon concept art challenge, shows the star of the Halo series in his declining years, decades of battle having taken their toll on his spirts and the ravages of the Flood having corrupted his flesh.
Not the cheeriest way for the saviour of humanity to go out, true, but then can you picture Master Chief kicking back at a retirement home in flip-flops and a Hawaiian shirt, playing bowls all day?
