Hey gang, hopefully this isn't too spam-y and is put in the right place, please forgive us if we've got it all wrong, but we just wanted to get the word out about the new 40K series:
Boom! Studios Debuts Warhammer® 40,000 Comic Book Series in San Diego
July 18, 2006 Los Angeles, CA? Boom! Studios announced today the launch of a comic book series based on Games Workshop Group PLC?s tabletop war game Warhammer 40,000. The UK based company selected Boom! Studios to create a series exploring the rich Warhammer 40,000 universe that will satisfy their most ardent fans while still being accessible to those looking for an awesome Science Fiction story.
"We are thrilled to be in business with one of the biggest powerhouses on the entertainment landscape worldwide," BOOM! Studios publisher Ross Richie stated. "Games Workshop is a truly innovative business manufacturing, distributing, and retailing their own product and creating some of the most exciting Intellectual Property to work on. This is going to herald a great new era for BOOM!."
The Warhammer 40,000 series will debut in San Diego with a special preview book for sale at the Boom! studios booth (1531), with issue #1 set for release in the month of October.
Warhammer 40,000 is set in a dark, forbidding, future, ravaged by thousands of years of conflict. Across this gothic universe armies struggle for victory in a battle to the death. Foremost among Humanity?s defenders are the fearless Space Marines: genetically engineered super-warriors who are armed with the best weapons available. Supporting them are the vast armies of the Emperor, made up of legions of men and the tanks of the Imperial Guard. Against these loyal troops are ranged the alien armies of the Tau, savage Orks, enigmatic Eldar and unfathomable Tyranids. And always, lurking in the shadows, there is the unholy taint of Chaos: once-loyal Space Marines now turned traitor and in the service of the unspeakable Daemon Lords of Chaos.
