The action-packed world of Warhammer comes to Marvel Comics this October, and will feature a very special variant cover.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Last year, Marvel Comics announced an exciting collaboration with Games Worskhop to produce brand-new comics and graphic novels set in the popular Warhammer tabletop gaming universes. This highly-anticipated venture into the extraordinary world of Warhammer begins this October with WARHAMMER 40,000: MARNEUS CALGAR, the first of many never-before-told Warhammer stories. Perfect for aficionados and newcomers to the beloved setting, this debut issue will be written by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery, The Wicked + The Divine) and drawn by artist Jacen Burrows (Punisher: Soviet, Moon Knight). These two superstar creators will join forces to tell Marneus Calgar’s mysterious origin – from his beginnings on the world of Nova Thulium, his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and to the unfolding mystery of the Black Altar as a deadly threat from his past reemerges to threaten the present of the Ultramar system. See the legendary Space Marine Chapter Master take charge on this explosive variant cover straight from Games Workshop and discover his dark past when WARHAMMER 40,000: MARNEUS CALGAR #1 hits stands in October!
