    By the Emperor, this a good comic. Don't overlook this just because it's a tie-in. There's some fantastic work in here. Read Full Review

    In essence, Dawn of War III is a fun read with a lot of action and cool artwork to boot. While the characters are a little hard to differentiate and the actions scenes are a little disjointed, the overall story is intriguing enough for us to want more. This is also just the first issue of the franchise, so I'm sure we'll become better acquainted with the characters and the plot as the series progresses. Overall, I like the franchise so far, and I want to see more. Read Full Review

    As a fan of 40k, of course I love the comic and can't wait for the next issue. But, for those who don't know the world, this probably isn't the best place to start to dive in. O'Sullivan does do an excellent job of translating the video game version of the tabletop game into comics and the art delivers the brutal action you'd expect. As an adaptation, the team knocks it out of the park. Read Full Review

    Dawn of War #1 feels like a suitable teaser, both for the video game and a dense fictional universe, approaching both with a familiar story and grimy, detailed art. For those looking to get a peek at what Warhammer 40K looks like at its best and bloodiest, it's hard to beat the introduction Dawn of War #1 offers. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Chris O'Connor Jun 1, 2017

    An interesting addition to the overall story for Dawn of War 3 but perhaps better served as a free bonus with the game rather than as a standalone comic. Having said that, this may just be best left until the entire story can be bought together as there are a few too many things going on in this one portion of the story to make it worthy of a stand alone purchase" get the story all together or perhaps just play the game.
