Marvel’s ‘Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle’ #1 Coming This August

by Brendan M. Allen

Following last year’s Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar series, Marvel Comics and Games Workshop’s collaboration will continue this August with Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1.

Written by Torunn Grønbekk with art by Edgar Salazar, this latest team up is aimed at those familiar with the popular tabletop game, and also serves as an introduction for newcomers to the grim future of the 41st millennium. The new series contains an all-new adventure of the sisterhood of warriors known as the Adepta Sororitas.

‘A squad of Adepta Sororitas, led by Canoness Veridyan arrive on planet Siscia to retrieve a lost Inquisitorial acolyte and put down a heretical uprising. 

As Novitiate Ghita’s first mission with her Order gets underway, what should be an easy mission turns into something much worse, as an unknown force deep within the subterranean city of the planet rears its ugly head! It’s no-holds-barred action, mystery, and daemons galore as the all-female fighting force lets bolters blaze and flamers scorch in this all-new saga!’

A Warhammer 40,000 aficionado herself, here’s what Torunn Grønbekk had to say about working on WARHAMMER 40,000: SISTERS OF BATTLE:

“I’m beyond thrilled to continue Marvel’s Warhammer 40,000 line with this new series. The Sisters of Battle are everything I adore about 40K,” Grønbekk says. “I love everything from their unflinching conviction to their brutal armory to the creepiest of all servitors; the Cherub. We’re in a universe where attack is the best defense and suffering is prayer, and I couldn’t be happier to enter the battle with the Adepta Sororitas. Expect many hymnals and a lot of dead heretics.”

Look for Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 on the spinner racks August 18, 2021.
