Release Date: October 5th

In the 40th century, humanity serves the Emperor of Man. Under his authority, man has ventured into the stars and has conquered most of the galaxy. Humanity’s main priority is to establish itself as the only species. Aliens and traitors wait to sabotage the goals set by the Emperor. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #1 follows the soldiers of the Imperium as they race to conquer planets before their enemies can.

George Mann has written a comic that has me yearning for more. I want to dig down deeper into the plot. Mann spins a tense tale of anticipation. The players at work all have agendas and they play against each other. My favorite character introduced is Sabbatheil. She is an Inquisitor, whose responsibility is to hunt down traitors. She cold, strong, and focused. Sabbatheil is the most interesting of the characters so far. But it’s not a cut against the others, since I’m positive that more will be revealed in the coming issues. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #1 is a great launch by George.

Tazio Betten draws a world that I imagine when I think of Warhammer 40,000. Its a mixture of baroque, roman, and gothic influences. It’s a decadent world of armor, weapons, and pageantry. Gaudy details are everywhere in this world. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #1 highlights Tazio’s talents.

I mentioned Sabbatheil earlier, but it bears to mention again. The way she’s drawn really brings gravity to her character. The redness around her eyes, to the brand on her forehead all come together to make an intriguing character.

As a huge fan of the lore behind Warhammer, I was cautiously optimistic about Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #1. I’ve dabbled with the table top game, and I’ve read ten books by Games Workshop’s the Black Library. So I’m pretty familiar with the mythos of Warhammer verse. You don’t have to read the books or play the tabletop game to appreciate this comic book. This is a great jumping in point for those interested. For more reviews check them out here.
