Honesty time: I’ve never played Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000.
Not once.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a well-made comic set in the violent far-flung future world 38,000 years from now.
A kidnapped Raclaw of the Drumkil Clan is forced into battling first his kin and then a vicious giant lion-esque beast called as carnodon to prove his worthiness to join the space marines’ Chapter Of Eternal Crusade.
But will Raclaw choose to join the Chapter’s deadly campaign or be doomed to life as a slave?
Well, duh!
This first glimpse into the world of the popular role-playing game is shocking and visceral and the rest of this miniseries by writers Dan Abnett and Ian Edginton and artists Lui Antonio promises much more of the same.
