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.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Primordial #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Batman ’89 #2 (DC Comics) – It’s been fun going back to the “film universe” of Batman and we want to see where it goes, especially with what has been hinted at.

Batman: The World (DC Comics) – Batman stories from creative teams from around the world in a new anthology.

Black Widow #11 (Marvel) – This series has delivered with every issue. It mixes great action, with real emotion, and the sexiness this sort of “spy” story can deliver. It’s just perfect entertainment.

Campisi #2 (AfterShock) – The mob vs. dragon. That’s all you really need to know about this one.

Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 (Marvel) – The Eternals have been shaken up in their own series delivering a story that makes them “A” level in the Marvel Universe. What this spin-off brings to the table has us intrigued.

Hellboy & the BPRD 1957 Family Ties (Dark Horse) – Hellboy is always fun. This one-shot focuses on an unwanted house guest that Hellboy and BPRD agent Susan Xiang need to take care of.

I Am Batman #1 (DC Comics) – John Ridley has been delivering an interesting take on the next Batman with a story that features a lot of emotion and depth.

Kang the Conqueror #2 (Marvel) – The first issue did a solid job of streamlining the character’s convoluted history. We’re excited to see where this second issue goes as a young Kang begins to confront his different versions in a twisted version of “this is your life”.

MAW #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What happens when one woman becomes the real monster society has always made her out to be? That alone has us intrigued to read this one.

Nobody’s Child #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Albino rhinos have a genetic code that holds the properties to regenerate man. This leads to their near extinction. This is the story of a boy who decides to dedicate his life to protecting this rhino.

Primordial #1 (Image Comics) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino launch this new series about some of the animal test subjects during the early years of the space program. The animals never came back… they were taken and all of these years later, they’re coming home.

Stray Dogs (Image Comics) – If you missed this series as individual issues, you need to get the trade. It’s a murder mystery from the perspective of the dogs that might have witnessed it. Amazing art and full of tension.

Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story (DC Comics) – A new take on Jessica Cruz’s origin story. We’re fans of the character and interested in seeing what new ideas can be done with her.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a good introduction to this faction and the world delivering solid art and action. Individuals who enjoy a straightforward “space marine kills alien” type story should check this out.

X-Men: Trial of Magneto #2 (Marvel) – The debut was full of emotion as the attempt to figure out who killed the Scarlet Witch began. But, we’re expecting a lot of twists and turns before this one is over.

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1

In Marvel’s debut comic series based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe, major revelations were dropped. This wasn’t just some generic army force going to battle, the series rewrote what we knew about one of the major characters in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 kicks off the second series to debut under Marvel and it’s clear in this first issue, we’re in store for a shift in focus.

The Sisters of Battle are an army but one focused on religion and prayer. Its focus is to lead the charge against those that stand against the Emperor, the living corpse that is revered in god-like ways. Torunn Grønbekk takes us into this world with a new story that gives us something similar, but different enough, from the first volume by Marvel. While the comic does have a “named” character in Canoness Veridyan, it’s not Veridyan’s story. So far, this isn’t some earth-shaking revelation about the character. Instead, its most interesting aspect is the Sisters surrounding her.

Sent to a planet in the middle of an uprising, the Sisters of Battle must figure out what’s going on while retrieving an asset. We’re given hints as to the evil behind everything but overall, the first issue is a general mystery. What we do know is the corruption is everywhere. The squad is up against numbers they weren’t expecting. We get reactions from the average Sister. We experience their fear and their faith. You get the sisterhood between them and the sadness when one is lost.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 also delivers some interesting thematic aspects that reflect the real world. We’re seeing the masses fall under the spell of something. It could be the leader. It could be something else. But, these are individuals turning on their fellow citizens corrupted by a force. To say it doesn’t hit home a bit would be a lie.

Edgar Salazar‘s art is solid. The issue has a lot of detail, something the Sisters of Battle are known for. Instead of smooth armor repeated over and over in the Space Marines, the Sisters have rather intricate looks in the armor including small rivets, skulls, and more. It’s a more ornate look and Salazar nails it. Arif Prianto handles the color while Clayton Cowles does the lettering and the color and lettering help nail down the feel of the world and issue. There’s a “dirtiness” about it. The world features browns and dark colors. The Sister’s ship is blues and whites.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 might lean a bit more towards fans of Games Workshop but the issue should be accessible for those who know nothing about the world. It delivers solid hints in the details as to what the Sisters of Battle are about and the world of Warhammer 40,000. It gives us the next chapter for that world in the hands of Marvel comics and shows they’re willing to shake up the formula a bit with each new series.
