Warhammer 40,000: Revelations #6
Story By: George Mann
Release Date: April, 12th
What brings me back to the Warhammer franchise is that there are no straightforward good guys, but certainly there is clear cut bad guys. Warhammer 40,000: Revelations #6, shows this in gross technicolor detail. You sit front seat to the gothic space drama, spilled out across 22 pages.
In Warhammer 40,000: Revelations #6, George Mann introduces some more players on to the stage. But it doesn’t take away, or muddy the waters. Mann adds to the complexity of what our protagonists are dealing with. And daemons of Chaos are fleshed out a bit more in this arc. Baltus the soldier is put into direct conflict with the agents of the warp.
With all that said the spotlight belongs to the Inquisitor Sabbathiel. She is the purifying flicker of flame that will purge the infestation of traitors amongst humanity. Her character is an idealist or maybe fanatic is a better word. The devotion to the Emperor she shows is unbending; but will her means put her goals in peril? George has written a character who stands out in all the fiction that I consume across all media. I don’t know if George had this in mind when writing Sabbathiel? But she has great stage presence.
Two great artist Tazio Bettin and Enrica Eren Angiolini once again raise the bar for their peers. The lines are clean, details aren’t skipped over, facial expressions are clear, and the colors vibrant. We’re given a doubly whammy as far as the art is concerned. I’m glad Titan Comics brought these two on board to tackle Warhammer 40,000: Revelations #6, it shows just how serious they are about this series.
Consistency is important to any saga. But these trio of creators Mann, Bettin, and Angiolini continue to excel. It’s obvious in the book that they are dedicated, hard working, and respect their readers.
