That is some gakky artwork for the first issue cover where you'd think they'd want to make the best impression possible. They should have gotten on of the artists who do the codex covers or this freelance artist.

Many folks who comment on the industry consider that to be one of the many problems with it but that's a long discussion for another thread/subforum.

I wonder if he'll thwart the plans of chaos by eating a word bearer's brain to gain knowledge of their plans.

I think their pink Hello Kitty marine parodies will be more grimdark than anything Marvel will give us.




That's not to say that I'm against more family friendly comics in the 40k universe but rather that I'd want them in addition to a more indy authentic take. YMMV.

Well then we need to discuss what's considered "kid friendly". Didn't they actually kill characters in the Adventure series via Necrons? Doesn't seem kid friendly there entirely.

Seriously, the art is fine I guess apart from that head/neck snafu.

But I’ve no use for a Bolter porn comic anyway. GW has never done particularly good comics.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Hunger Games is for teenagers. Not sure if Warhammer Adventures is in that same category.

Yeah, that.

It is a lost opportunity, though; they should have partnered up with IDW.


Yanno that Marvel Studios is a separate thing, right? That Marvel Comics farm out their characters to IDW now?

I've been looking through the old Warhammer Monthly comics recently. Nostalgia goggles weren't enough to disguise the fact that barring a few gems (Titan, Darkblade, Kal Jerico etc.) you're right.

There's another topic in itself - what happened to those characters after the sudden chop.

You have to be owned by Disney to have that honor. He's licensed so, at best, he's a Disney mistress.

Marvel movies are making so much money by reusing the most popular characters and storyline from comics that they can just keep publishing comics at a loss, and consider that R&D/market research, I guess.

it's possiable marvel considers this 40k forey an experiment to test how popular 40k is, if the comics do well disney could well take a look at the IP more seriously for other material.

There's been a few comics already no? Even after GW stopped producing them. They never do very well and I shouldn't think this one will either.


Well, Deff Skwadron, Daemonifuge, Kal Jerico, The Redeemer, Titan, and even the more recent Macragge's Honour were actually quite cool.

He's talking about Marvel actually producing comic books. Both DC's and Marvel's comic book divisions are now making only a tiny fraction of the company's profits. It's an insanely low number, something like 8-11% or something. Comic book shops are closing at an alarming rate.

And still, it has done nothing but grow since it almost went bankrupt last century.

It is a lost opportunity, though; they should have partnered up with IDW. That way they could have had crossovers with Transformers, G.I. Joe, Power Rangers, Mask, TMNT, Terminator... feth, they could have had a crossover with Sonic the Hedgehog!


Power Rangers is done by Boom, not IDW. Incidentally, Boom was the previous 40K license holder, so that crossover actually used to be on the table.

Although it's also worth noting that the trail of devastation left in the wake of our pre-teen protagonists has almost no effect on them at all, other than one scene where Talen was a tad sad for a bit.

Any normal human would be psychologically ruined by a fraction of what they've cheerfully passed through.
