My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fantastic first foray into the eternal warfare of the forty first millennium this has been for Marvel Comics?!

I honestly never thought I’d read a Marvel comic in which people yelled “Blood for blood god!” and “Skulls for the skull throne!” But here we are, and it’s every bit as good as it sounds.

While this issue is mostly tasked with wrapping things up, there’s still time for some amusing asides, like the titular Marneus Calgar declaring that Space Marines do not run, the withdraw.

All in all this has been an impressive series, sharply written by Kieron Gillen and beautifully, if gorily, illustrated by Jacen Burrows.

The only question that remains is whether or not Marvel will be taking any further forays into the world of Warhammer 40k, and I, for one, sincerely hope that they do!
