Titan Comics is set to publish a new comic book series based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 with the first issues due to hit the newsstands in September.
First brought to life as an epoch-definingly popular tabletop miniature wargame in 1987, Warhammer 40,000’s dark-gothic dystopian science-fiction universe pits an outnumbered human Imperium and its sometimes-allies against the eternal forces of Chaos, in a battle for control of the 41st millennium.
Now in its seventh edition of the tabletop game, Warhammer 40,000 continues to grow from strength to strength, gathering fans across the world through its games, novels and videogames. Numerous top-selling apps featuring the Warhammer 40,000 IP are also available for iOS and Android.
Aimed at fans and newcomers alike, Titan’s new series taps into Warhammer 40,000’s wealth of compelling characters, species, and searingly-memorable imagery to deliver accessible science-fiction action on an unmatched galactic canvas.
Whether it’s the iconic, power-armour-encased Space Marines holding the line against unspeakable forces of xenos; the frothing, Daemonic intensity of Chaos, corrupting all they touch; the squabbling, bodged-together Orks, riding roughshod over far-flung colonies; the exotic, long-lived Eldar wielding rare weaponry and rarer insight; the idealistic, mech-piloting forces of the Tau; the undying, endoskeletal hordes of the Necrons, or the starving forces of unnature, like the Tyranids, spitting death and destruction with every spurt of their chitinous cannons, the Warhammer 40,000 setting offers horrifying surprises and stunning sights at every turn – and the comics will explore them all!
The Titan/Games Workshop partnership will see the publication of brand-new, original comic stories produced by Titan Comics, who add Warhammer 40,000 to their expanding catalogue of wildly-successful licensed comics based on gaming properties including Assassin’s Creed, Deus Ex and Dark Souls.
More announcements soon.
