Titan Comics and Games Workshop have teamed to bring countless Orks -- and the Deathwatch Space Marines who hate them -- to comics fans this coming January. Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch is a four-issue miniseries based on the standalone Deathwatch board game.
The miniseries sees the Deathwatch team assailed by hordes of Orks while the fate of an entire sector hangs in the balance. In Warhammer 40,000 lore, the Deathwatch team is an elite group of Space Marines tasked with defending humanity and the Imperium of Man from the alien terrors of outer space, including not only Orks, but also the Tyranids, Dark Eldar, C’tan and Necrons.
Three variant covers will be sold for Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch #1. The covers (which can be found below) are illustrated by Ørjan Svendsen, Fabio Listrani and Tazio Bettin.
Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch will be written by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, the author behind multiple Black Library books (Black Library is Games Workshop’s publishing division), like The Horus Heresy: The First Heretic. Wagner Reis (Red Sonja) will provide art for the series. Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch #1 goes on sale on Jan. 3, 2018.
