After last year’s Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar comic book series, Marvel Comics and Games Workshop’s collaboration will continue this August with the first issue of Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle.
According to Marvel.com, the new series will be written by Torunn Grønbekk (The Mighty Valkyries) and illustrated by Edgar Salazar (Uncanny X-Men).
“I'm beyond thrilled to continue Marvel's Warhammer 40,000 line with this new series,” says Torunn Grønbekk, author of the series. “Seeing the story come to life through the art of Edgar Salazar has been a true delight. It takes a particular talent to keep track of all the details essential to the 40K universe, and Edgar is next-level great. Combined with the colors of Arif Prianto, the grim darkness of the far future is brought to life in a style you've never seen before!"
The series takes place in the future of the 41st millennium and focuses on the adventures of the sisterhood of warriors known as the Adepta Sororitas.
