Marvel will tell the origin story of the famous Space Marine from Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game in Marneus Calgar: Warhammer 40,000 #1. As a part of the new series, Marvel will provide a “Color Your Own Variant Cover” version of the first issue in which readers can color their own Marneus Calgar.
The “Color Your Own Variant” was drawn by Max Dunbar (Champions) and is printed on paper stock so that readers can color Dunbar’s art and create their own Space Marine.
The debut of the five-issue series will be released on October 14, 2020, written by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men) with art by Jacen Burrows (Moon Knight).
“Witness Marneus Calgar’s beginnings on the world of Nova Thulium, his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and discover a deadly threat from his past, the mysterious Black Altar,” reads Marvel’s description.
The other covers for Marneus Calgar: Warhammer 40,000 #1 feature art by Burrows and artists at Games Workshop.
