Review: Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2

The battle against the cult of Chaos continues in Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 that adds some depth to characters and delivers some tragedy. It’s a solid second issue that really shows off why the Sisters of Battle are a bit different than their Space Marine brethren.

Torunn Grønbekk gives us a deeper look at this squad of Sisters as they attempt to complete their mission while surrounded by the stench of Chaos. Unlike other members of the Imperium, this team is much more a knife used to slice carefully as opposed to a blunt instrument just blowing things up. Grønbekk makes it a point to show us this distinction in the team’s choices in how they proceed to complete their mission. It’s a very interesting and clear choice that creates a different reading experience from those who read the first Warhammer 40,000 series from Marvel. There was little that was subtle with that. Instead we get debates on how best to not have Chaos cultists descending from all around.

Grønbekk also gives us some more history of one of the Sisters using the opportunity to not just teach us more about the planet but also the process of joining the Sisters of Battle as well. It’s a really smart way to add depth to the characters and teach those who might not know the details of the world of Warhammer 40,000.

Edgar Salazar‘s art continues to be solid. Arif Prianto handles the colors and lettering is by Clayton Cowles. There’s a solid amount of detail in the comic which is something that stands out about the Sisters of Battle in the miniature game the comic is based on. The characters all have such individual personalities and the world itself feels like it’s fallen into the taint of Chaos. There’s something underlying throughout the images that makes it all feel a little off. A little evil.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 is a really solid issue with some good action. It’s the details that really makes it all stand out in both the visual and the story itself. The comic too delivers some emotion among the action keeping readers on their toes as to what to expect from the series. As a follow up volume, this is a solid second entry in Marvel’s entry in the world of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000.

Marvel’s Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar Comics are Getting Variant Covers for Games Workshop’s Warhammer Stores

Games Workshop and Marvel announced in September of 2019 that they would be partnering for a new line of comics based on GW’s properties. In June of 2020, the first comic was announced, Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar which was released in October of 2020.

Games Workshop usually has some sort of tie-ins for this sort of partnership regarding their stores so it was rather odd that the game publisher was a bit silent about the new venture and haven’t sold the comics in their stores both physical and online.

Today GW announced that the comic will be coming to Warhammer shops with exclusive variant covers the first of which will be released very soon.

Check out the first cover below and we’ll have more as they’re revealed and announced.
