So... this happened.

This counts as news, right?



GW wrote:One of the 41st Millennium’s most famed warriors, Marneus Calgar is a champion of Humanity whose legacy goes right back to the earliest days of Rogue Trader. He’s a paragon of what makes a Space Marine a Space Marine, though his origins have always remained a mystery – until now. This new comic series will, at last, tell the origin story of this exemplar of the Adeptus Astartes, even going back as far as his time as a child on Nova Thulium.
I tell ya what, they had better fething mention me!

Can we start calling him Marvellous Calgar now?

Hopefully this goes well and we get more comics about other people in the universe.

I looked up the artists and they seem solid, i also hope it goes well but im not a fan of the art style of the cover, hope it doesn't carry in the comic.

So Calgar can now show up in the MCU with no problems. Would've made Endgame at least a little more interesting.

Erm, not the character I would have chosen to start with. Probably shouldn't have been a known character in the first place. Too much existing baggage. Not a fan of the cartoony art style either. Would prefer detailed black and white. But I'm an old indy comic and gw guy so that's just me. Definitely wouldn't be the modern Marvel style.

I gotta disagree. Choosing a known character is a better starting point as there's less to mess up with for what can be overall established events and stories. That's why for the live action thing using Eisenhorn is a smart move.

The cover colouring is far too bright and clean tbh, but maybe that's just the cover art.The pencils are fine.

Still, I'm hopeful with Gillen writing it will be good.

We've had those for a long time though. Look at the that odd Deathwatch comic we got. And the Dark Angels vs Iron Warriors vs Grey Knights + Inquisition comic. And before that, we had that Empire comic series, which tied in with the Witch Hunter comics.

Also, this isn't the first 40k Marvel thing. Remember all those plagiarized 40k stuff that one guy ripped off? He didn't even think to change the Tau symbol on the vehicle
This was a smart move by Marvel. Now when you google 40k Marvel, this comic will pop up, not that plagiarism stuff

Pri-Marneus Calgar looks a bit off though. His head seems too far back

The locked thread covered that in the last post. It also contains a link to the original Warhammer Community post for those who are interested.

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.

You never know. The glorious stories of my half brother might really take off, enough that Disney takes notice.

Disney owns Marvel.
Marvel makes a 40K comic.
Disney buys GW.

Telling Calgar's origin story -> Primarisized Calgar on the cover.
Yup; seems about right.


EDIT: Also, why are they using the dodgy 40K logo with the overhanging R for this? They literally have a non-borked version in use FFS.

I didn't know side effects of the primarisizing of Oldstartes included microcephaly and neck elongation.

Spoiler:


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.

No, the art style is what you'd expect for Transformers or a super hero comic, not 40K.

Look, GW have made great efforts to deliver a book range that wouldn't feel out of place in the historical warfare, Tolkien or Shakespeare sections at Waterstones, and I don't see it here.

And yes, Warboss, that is more like it.

Yeah, no. Glad I put my glass down, because a spittake would have been unavoidable.
This is exactly what I expect from a 40k/Marvel collab.
Well, OK, from the cover I also expect a guest-crossover with Cable, just so we can be confused about who is who, but this is 40k. It is superheroes, and Transformers honestly make more logical sense than the setting we're working with, and they barely make any sense.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Sadly I wasn't as quick!

I'm pretty forgiving on most things( the Ultramarines movie and that emo-Ravenguard chap, for example ) but sometimes we have to put our foot down.

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!

I hate that cover art but Kieran Gillan is a legit writer. I´m curious how the rest will look like.
