Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3 Review

Story By: George Mann

Art By: Tazio Bettin

Color By: Enrica Eren Angiolini

Release Date: December 21st

This past year, I’ve been knee deep in Warhammer lore. Reading through the Horus Heresy has been an immense pleasure. I’ve read ten of the Horus Heresy books and I’m reading book #11, Fallen Angels. Now mind you, the Heresy books take place ten thousand years before the events of Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3. So I count it serendipitous that the current book I’m reading has much to do with with this comic.

Games Workshop is based out of Nottingham, England. They are the owners of the Warhammer IP. Their library is extensive, and goes back decades. Which is a playground for the authors they hire. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3 is set in the 40th century. Humanity is fighting a multi-front war in the galaxy. The Dark Angels have found a planet inhabited by humans and have been isolated for ten thousand years. Now the Dark Angels have offered them an ultimatum; either join or die. Meanwhile, the Inquisitor Sabbathiel has been sent to investigate potential corruption amongst the ranks of the Dark Angels.

George Mann has spelled out a story full of paranoia, angst, and gore. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3 is a comic swelling with cosmic drama. I haven’t read any of Mann’s novels, however his comics are worth the read. George gets Warhammer in both mood and tone. The total arrogance of the adherents of the Imperium, and the utter depravity of the Chaos Legions are all there. George’s dialogue is true to the characters. I feel like when I’m reading the exchange between the representatives of the Emporer, and the newly discovered lost human colony, that is exactly how it would play out. Mann’s vision for this mini series is superb.

Tazio Bettin draws a grim future. Bettin gives us the gothic details, baroque opulence, and the industrial war machines. No detail is forgotten under Bettin. Even the small texts that are pasted to the Astartes’ battle armor are all there. In tandem with Tazio is Erica Erin Angiolini, the colorist on Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3. She gives the book that added flair. Thanks to her you can view the gun battles, alien planet vistas, and spilled entrails in technicolor.

As big of a fan of the novels as I am, I’m so glad Titan Comics got a hold of this IP. Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #3 is a solid buy. It’s true that we live in a golden age of comics right now. There are a lot of great titles out there, but if I could recommend something different for your Wednesday pull, grab this book. You can read my review of issue one of the series here. This would make for a great stocking stuffer, but please don’t roll this up and put this in a stocking. I hope you’re treating your comics well, remember to bag and board those things.
