About this deal

Show your faith and fervor to the Emperor by joining us for the start of the next phase of WARHAMMER comics at Marvel! Written by Torunn Grønbekk ( The Mighty Valkyries ) and with art by Edgar Salazar ( Uncanny X-Men ), the series follows a squad of Battle Sisters as they fight to retrieve a lost Inquisitorial acolyte on planet Siscia and put down a heretical uprising for good measure. THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES and the names of the characters, items, events and places therein are trademarks of The Saul Zaentz Company d/b/a Middle-earth Enterprises under license to New Line Productions, Inc. And while it does feel like a healthy knowledge of the Warhammer universe and its characters would make this a richer reading experience, there's still enough here to scratch that violent war-loving itch.

It's no-holds-barred action, mystery, and daemons galore as the all-female military force lets bolters blaze and flamers scorch in this all-new saga! That means blood, and gore, and death, and little old ladies that spontaneously morph into giant purple tentacle things and eat people’s heads off. The larger purpose of the planet gets a handy data page, but it’s still tricky to honestly know what is going on here. I believe I own every Warhammer graphic novel to date, the only one to really compare this to would be it’s most recent counterpart on calgar.Warhammer is an exciting sci-fi universe as it plunges readers into a galaxy where war is the norm, religion is extreme, and violence is always the right choice. The grimdark is heavy and there’s very little respite in a world where war is cherished and death is constant.

this latest team-up will delight those familiar with the popular tabletop game phenomenon and serve as a perfect introduction for newcomers to the grim future of the 41st millennium that has captured the imagination of millions of fans around the world! It seems like only yesterday that we were announcing the groundbreaking arrival of a Warhammer 40,000 comic, doesn’t it? Show your faith and fervour to the Emperor by joining us for the start of the next phase of WARHAMMER comics at Marvel!

The epic showdown between Iron Man and his allies and Korvac and his cohort continues aboard Galactus' worldship! and while they DO have nice art, the stories are very confusing to follow and don't establish things for the reader properly, and they end in rather boring and anti-climactic ways.

Outside of comic journalism, I am the artist of many weird pictures, and the guitarist of many heavy riffs. Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle will be written by Torunn Grønbekk with art from Edgar Salazar, and will dive headlong into the grimdark world of Warhammer's Imperium of Man. A squad of Adepta Sororitas, led by CANONESS VERIDYAN arrive on planet Siscia to retrieve a lost Inquisitorial acolyte and put down a heretical uprising. It takes a particular talent to keep track of all the details essential to the 40K universe, and Edgar is next-level great," Grønbekk concludes.It delivers solid hints in the details as to what the Sisters of Battle are about and the world of Warhammer 40,000. A pro and a con of Warhammer comics is how deep this lore goes, and how the creators navigate that to make it understandable to unfamiliar readers. We haven’t seen the third story announced yet, but if they continue to give creators like GrØnbekk the keys to the kingdom, existing fans and newbies alike will gravitate towards these stories. We can’t wait for the first issue of Marvel’s Sisters of Battle comic series to arrive on August 18th.

When I heard of the Sisters of Battle series coming out, I was so stoked because I love Warhammer, and I loved this book. It’s no-holdsbarred action, mystery and daemons galore as the all-female military force lets bolters blaze and flamers scorch in this all-new saga!

With limited knowledge of Warhammer, I can safely say this issue offers a compelling world and enough detail to figure things out, but it still feels like I’m missing out on something a hardcore fan is lapping up.
