Preview Warhammer 40,000’s New Story Arc From Titan Comics

by Oliver MacNamee

Coming up from Titan Comics, Warhammer 40,000 #9, out next Wednesday the 20th of September, sees the start of a brand new 4 part story arc, Fallen written by George Mann and illustrated by Tazio Bettin and Enrica Eren Angolini.

Discovering evidence that, during the Horus Heresy, a rift in the ranks of the Dark Angels led to many Space Marines turning against the Emperor and becoming known as the Fallen, Sabbathiel is emboldened in her mission to expose their ancient lies. However, her crew fear her zealousness will lead to their collective downfall.

Meanwhile, as Baltus is inducted into the Inner Circle of the Dark Angels, his growing doubts surrounding the faithfulness of his Order cause him to question his understanding of the universe – even as he pledges to eradicate his corrupted kin. And, faced with further evidence that the dark-helmed Space Marine Baltus witnessed on Exyrion has been orchestrating all of the events in the Calaphrax Cluster to date, the path bends threateningly towards a terrible, inevitable end…
