    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 11, 2020

    With Calgars past fully rendered in the course of the first couple of issues of the series, its really only a matter of time before the series will have to focus substantially more in installments to come. A more central focus on Ultramarines in conflict with chaos appears to be right around the corner. Gillen could still drift back into Calgars past from here, but the center of the story is free to shift a bit to the present now that the huge event in Calgars past has been revealed.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 11, 2020

    When all is said and done Warhammer 40K: Marneus Calgar #2 delivers even more than Id hoped for. It pushes its narrative forward while delivering a twist I never saw coming. My anticipation for what comes next with this title continues to grow. Read Full Review

    Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar #2 delivers one hell of an ending. I gasped out loud and immediately had to check to make sure this reveal was brand new. It completely upends so much of what we know making Marneus Calgar much more than Captain America in Power Armor. This is a second issue that completely outdoes its debut and should create a hell of a lot of buzz. Read Full Review

    The final few pages of Marneus Calgar #2 transform this nihilistic setting into one still worth investing in and this newly invested reader is eagerly anticipating issue #3. Read Full Review

    Warhammer 40k is not for everyone. I would not recommend it to most people. But if you are interested, Marneus Calgar is a very good starting point. Read Full Review
