OF COURSE THEY'RE STARTING WITH THE BLOODY ULTRAMARINES :p

 

The grim darkness of Warhammer 40,000 comes to Marvel Comics this October!

Quote

A legendary Space Marine Chapter Master of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Marneus Calgar leads his elite Ultramarines against humanity’s greatest threats and has had his dark past shrouded in mystery…until now. This October, writer Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery, The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Jacen Burrows (Punisher: Soviet, Moon Knight) will unite to tell Marneus Calgar’s never-before-told origin story - 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.

 

Gillen, a veteran player of the Warhammer tabletop miniature wargame, can barely contain his enthusiasm for the series. "I am venerable enough to have bought Rogue Trader in 1987,” he reveals. “Since then, I like to think every hastily dry-brushed Necron, every badly edge-highlighted Marine, every ignored Harlequin (as painting Motley petrified me) has prepared me for writing the first Warhammer comics for Marvel. If I said, ‘Getting to explore the roots of Marneus Calgar and setting the stage for Marvel's Warhammer comics is a dream come true,’ I would be betraying everything this grim future should be since ‘dream’ implies the possibility of hope.  But getting to do this is the sort of thing Slaanesh would wave in my direction if she wanted me coming over to the tentacle-y side.“
