New York, NY— September 8, 2020 — The action-packed universe of the Warhammer tabletop gaming universe is coming to Marvel Comics this October! Written by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-MenJourney Into MysteryThe Wicked + The Divine) and drawn by artist Jacen Burrows (Punisher: SovietMoon Knight), WARHAMMER 40,000: MARNEUS CALGAR #1 will reveal the untold origin of the legendary Space Marine Chapter Master. Witness Marneus Calgar’s beginnings on the world of Nova Thulium, his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and discover a deadly threat from his past, the mysterious Black Altar. To gear up for this latest mission, hone your design skills with the Color Your Own Variant cover by popular artist Max Dunbar (Champions). This special paper stock cover allows you to color Dunbar’s artwork so you can create your very own Space Marine and save the Ultramar system from destruction in this extraordinary chapter of the Warhammer saga!

“Part of the reason I said yes is I because I believe with Marvel I can do a 40K comic “properly”— as in, with all the skill and craft I’ve learned over the years. If I’m going to do a 40K comic as a mature creator I’d like to hit it hard,” Gillen explained in an interview with CBR. “The other part is, as the writer of the first mini in the Warhammer line I get to set the tone for everything else. Also, I get to introduce folks to the world. You asked me how I would explain Warhammer to somebody? I’d do that by giving them my mini.”

Prepare for glorious combat when WARHAMMER 40,000: MARNEUS CALGAR #1 hits stands this October!
