Games Workshop Returns to Comics with Marvel
Games Workshop has had a spotty history with comics with runs that come and go and rotate publishers. Comics based on GW properties are returning as the company is teaming up with Marvel for a whole new era. Details as far as properties and what creative teams have not been announced.
GW, with popular games like Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, and more, has deep and rich game fluff ripe for use in greater media. The game publisher is considered to have untapped potential which is finally getting the spotlight. On top of the comic announcement, a television show has been announced based on one of the characters from Warhammer 40k.
This isn’t the first time GW properties have wound up in Marvel comics, though previously it wasn’t so legal.
Comics began being published through Black Library, some of which were award-winning. BOOM! Studios picked up the license in 2006 and lost it about mid-2009. Titan Comics began publishing comics in 2016 which ended in 2018.
New comics come to shelves autumn 2020.
