Marvel Comics and Games Workshop announced they will be teaming up to produce new Warhammer comics and graphic novels.
No details were provided surrounding the specifics of these new comics, but it appears they will be set in both the Warhammer 40,000 property as well as Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
Marvel Comics editor Mark Basso commented on the new deal:
“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.”
According to Warhammer-Community, the first set of comics are expected to hit comic book shelves in Fall 2020.
It’s unclear if the Warhammer universes will crossover with the main Marvel Comics continuity as Conan has done after Marvel Comics reacquired the rights to the character.
Warhammer is no stranger to comic books. Titan Comics recently published a number of Warhammer comics including a Warhammer 40,000 series, Warhammer 40K Dawn of War III tie in series, and a Warhammer Blood Bowl spin-off. The last book was published in August 2018 with a collected edition coming out in December 2018.
