Written by Black Library superstar Aaron Dembski Bowden!
The best of the best and the most dangerous space marines from every chapter are called to the Deathwatch! They alone have the strength of mind and body to wield alien weapons and battle the enemy across the universe, manning the wall to defend humanity from the Xenos that would destroy them.
When a tide of savage Orks sweeps across the galaxy, a Deathwatch squad is dispatched to stem the flow... Whatever the cost!

    Final Verdict: 6.0" A story that may lean too heavily into clich or established knowledge still manages to keep interest for those who do not have a running interest in the Warhammer 40,000 franchise by way of well-done art and an easy-to-follow structure. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 10, 2018

    A solid enough start then, with a faithful recreation of the distinctive Games Workshop Warhammer 40k aesthetic. The story hasnt really done much to stand out yet, but the pieces are in place for what has the potential to be a genuinely enjoyable dose of large-scale sci-fi action. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 8, 2018

    Warhammer 40k: Deathwatch #1 is a very dull experience. The narrative is DOA. The art and color tries its best with what this franchise gives. Nothing about this is remotely engaging. Give this one a pass. Even if you like Warhammer, you deserve better storytelling than this. Read Full Review
