Marvel Entertainment has joined forces with Games Workshop to publish all new Warhammer stories in comics and graphic novels. There’s a nice overlap between comics and Warhammer so it’s no surprise the tabletop miniature game is making its way to the medium.
Marvel Editor Mark Basso says:
I can’t tell you how excited we are about diving into the depths of the expansive universes of Warhammer. At Marvel, we’re no strangers to telling deeply character-focused tales set in an interconnected world of stories, and fans are going to love what we’re already starting to cook up with the Games Workshop team for the Warhammer comics.
While I’m glad these will exist as the Warhammer fanbase is huge and will no doubt be interested in checking out these comics, I have to wonder why Marvel is publishing them. Marvel and by extension, Disney, does not own it, so wouldn’t it make more sense to concentrate on more of its own intellectual property? In any case, we’ll keep an eye out for more updates on this and official titles as they roll out.
