    Warhammer, whether Fantasy or 40K, can be overwhelming in choosing where to start. Marvel can milk the Warhammer for years and keep readers happy. What has been refreshing in Marvels approach is that they have assembled teams that work extremely well with each other, producing two outstanding stories that ease new readers in. When I heard of the Sisters of Battle series coming out, I was so stoked because I love Warhammer, and I loved this book. Even if you are not familiar with the Sisters of Battle, I urge you to go and check this book out. Its great sci-fi, and every page is filled with phenomenal writing and art. Read Full Review

    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. Read Full Review

    The second Warhammer 40,000 Marvel Comics series is off to a good start with an impressively international creative team. Marvel/Games Workshop could have gone in quite a few different directions with a second series. It IS disappointing that they would go with another Imperium-based series when there are so many other interesting ends of the galaxy, including Eldar, Squats, and Space Orks. If theyre going to go with another Imperial series, the Battles Sisters certainly seem interesting enough to follow around for a few issues. Read Full Review

    Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 is a strong start to Marvel's second Warhammer series. Grnbekk supplies interesting captions that add layers to a complex world clearly worth exploring. And while it does feel like a healthy knowledge of the Warhammer universe and its characters would make this a richer reading experience, there's still enough here to scratch that violent war-loving itch.

    No matter how neatly this tale is told, it still lacks purpose and that leaves the experience as hollow as the soldiers marching inevitably toward death on the page. Read Full Review
