Prepare for a new dawn! Titan Comics and Games Workshop are joining forces for a brand-new four issue comic mini-series to tile in with the upcoming and highly anticipated Dawn of War III real-time strategy game. The comic will launch in April 2017 and comes hot on the heels of the publisher’s successful Warhammer 40,000: Will Of Iron ongoing series, which launched earlier this year.
Written by Ryan O’Sullivan (Eisenhorn: Xenos, Turncoat) and illustrated by Daniel Indro (Vikings: Uprising, Doctor Who), the Dawn Of War III mini-series will tie-in to the colossal Dawn Of War real-time-strategy games, produced by Relic Entertainment with Sega and Games Workshop, in which players command armies of the Space Marines, Orks and the Eldar to dominate the battlefield!
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War was a critical and commercial hit in 2005, followed by the release of Dawn of War II: Retribution in 2009.
“I’ve been a fan of Warhammer 40,000 and all of its games for as long as I can remember,” says writer Ryan O’Sullivan. “What I enjoy about the Dawn Of War series in particular, other than the ability to purge heretics, is that the games have a decade-long narrative filled with ongoing characters and conflicts. I feel very fortunate to be able to contribute towards such a story, and I hope fans of the previous games will enjoy seeing familiar faces back in action on the pages of the comic.”
Titan’s Dawn Of War III comic series tells an all-new tale in parallel to that of the video game story, which sees three factions – the Blood Ravens Space Marines, the Eldar, and a fearsome Ork horde – converging on a planet where a weapon of devastating power has been unearthed.
