DC Showcase – Batman: Death in the Family
Five fascinating tales from the iconic DC canon, including the first interactive film presentation in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) history, come to animated life in DC Showcase — Batman: Death in the Family. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the anthology of 2019-2020 animated shorts arrives from WBHE on Blu-ray and Digital starting Oct. 13, 2020.
Anchoring the compilation of shorts is "Batman: Death in the Family," WBHE’s first-ever venture into interactive storytelling that allows fans to choose where the story goes through an innovative navigation guided by the viewer’s remote control. Central to the extended-length short is an adaptation of “Batman: A Death in the Family,” the 1988 landmark DC event where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending.
Inspired by characters and stories from DC’s robust portfolio, the 2019-2020 series of shorts — which have been individually included on DC Universe Movies releases since Summer 2019 — include:
Produced, directed and written by Brandon Vietti, "Batman: Death in the Family" Blu-ray offers an inventive take on the long-demanded story. In the new animated presentation, the infamous murder of Batman protégé Jason Todd will be undone, and the destinies of Batman, Robin and The Joker will play out in shocking new ways as viewers make multiple choices to control the story. And while "Batman: Under the Red Hood" provides a baseline, the story also branches in new directions and features several characters previously unseen in the original film. Bruce Greenwood (The Resident, Star Trek, iRobot), Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb) and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) reprise their Batman: Under The Red Hood roles of Batman, young Jason Todd and The Joker, respectively. Other featured voices are Zehra Fazal (Young Justice) as Talia al Ghul and Gary Cole (Veep) as Two-Face and James Gordon.
“ 'Batman: Death in the Family' is essentially a comic book come to life,” says Vietti, whose DC Universe Movies directing credits include "Batman: Under the Red Hood" and "Superman: Doomsday," and he is co-creator and co-executive producer of the popular Young Justice animated television series. “We’ve paid homage to the 1988 interactive experience of DC’s ‘A Death in the Family’ comics release by giving fans a unique opportunity to craft their own story through a branching tool that can lead in multiple directions. The viewer gets to choose these characters’ paths, and each choice paves an alternate future for all of the characters and, ultimately, the story.”
The interactive Blu-ray presentation offers many different ways for viewers to tell the "Batman: Death in the Family" story, with numerous twists and turns in the middle, and several possible endings. The choices along the way put greater weight on the viewers’ decisions and result in even stronger stories. Viewers can also choose to allow the story to tell itself, as there is an option to let the Blu-ray decide its own path.
Packed with Easter Eggs, the centerpiece short’s story — with its foundation grounded in the original “Batman: A Death in the Family” comic run, and the acclaimed Batman: Under the Red Hood animated film — balances a number of integral themes within its entertainment, including fatherhood, mental health, death, rebirth, revenge and redemption. Along the route, viewers encounter new, surprising looks at some classic DC characters.
“From the very first navigation card, we wanted to give the audience an impression of what they’re getting into, but then also give them something unexpected — maybe even something they’ll regret, so they have to think twice about every future choice they make,” Vietti explains. “Branched storytelling has to be stronger than just the gimmick of the choices – it has to be rewarding and offer new and worthwhile insights into the characters. It needs to involve you, and keep you searching for the next twist. So we sought to subvert expectations and do something very different.”
All five new DC Showcase shorts credits include Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) as co-producer and Amy McKenna (Wonder Woman: Bloodlines) as producer. Sam Register is executive producer.
Initially launched in 2010, DC Showcase was originally comprised of four animated shorts produced by Bruce Timm and directed by Joaquim Dos Santos: "The Spectre" (released on 2/23/2010), "Jonah Hex" (7/27/2010), "Green Arrow" (9/28/2010) and "Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam" (11/9/2010). An additional short, "Catwoman" (10/18/2011), was attached the following year to the release of Batman: Year One, and was directed by Lauren Montgomery (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths) and executive produced by Bruce Timm. Screenwriters on the initial quintet were Steve Niles ("The Spectre"), Joe Lansdale ("Jonah Hex"), Greg Weisman ("Green Arrow"), Michael Jelenic ("Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam") and Paul Dini ("Catwoman").
“Interactive storytelling offers an entirely new dimension of entertainment for DC animated movie fans, and an exciting look into potential titles for the future,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation and Family Marketing. “Brandon Vietti has crafted a uniquely involving, multi-tiered approach to captivating the audience with both popular story devices and some very unexpected plot twists.”
DC Showcase — Batman: Death in the Family Blu-ray retails for $24.98. The Blu-ray features a Blu-ray disc with all of the shorts in hi-definition, including the fully-interactive, extended-length "Batman: Death in the Family," plus a digital version of the four other 2019-2020 DC Showcase shorts.
Not found on digital but available on Blu-ray are commentary tracks on "Sgt. Rock," "Adam Strange," "Death" and "The Phantom Stranger," plus one of the linear Death in the Family shorts ("Under the Red Hood: Reloaded"), by DC Daily hosts Amy Dallen and Hector Navarro. The Blu-ray also offers approximately five minutes of additional content within the "Batman: Death in the Family" story that is not included in the Digital version.
The Digital distribution retails for $19.99. It features the "Batman: Death in the Family" extended-length short in a non-interactive format (pre-assembled version of the story, titled "Under the Red Hood: Reloaded"), along with the other four 2019-2020 DC Showcase shorts, and three other non-interactive versions of the "Batman: Death in the Family" (titled "Jason Todd’s Rebellion," "Robin’s Revenge" and "Red Hood’s Reckoning") as bonus features. (Note: not all Digital retailers offer bonus features with purchase.)
RWBY Volume 7
Rooster Teeth’s epic anime-inspired series following the journeys of four unified huntresses-in-training arrives for its spectacular seventh season when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment presents RWBY Volume 7 on Digital ($14.99 SRP USA & Canada) and Blu-ray ($19.98 SRP USA, $24.98 SRP Canada) starting October 13, 2020.
Beloved by fans and acclaimed by critics, RWBY imagines a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, and humanity's only hope dependent upon powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant's protectors.
In RWBY Volume 7, Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang have fought hard alongside their friends to bring the Relic of Knowledge to Atlas, the northernmost Kingdom in Remnant. However, the futuristic urban-sprawl may hide just as much danger as the Grimm-infested tundra that surrounds it. Enemies and allies will collide as our heroes fight to stop Salem's forces, but banding together is dangerous when you don't know who you can trust.
The cast is led by the key quartet of Lindsay Jones (X-Ray and Vav) as Ruby Rose, Kara Eberle (Rooster Teeth Shorts) as Weiss Schnee, Arryn Zech (Red vs. Blue) as Blake Belladonna and Barbara Dunkelman (Fairy Tail, Blood Fest) as Yang Xiao Long. Other key voice cast members include Miles Luna (Camp Camp) as Jaune Arc, Jen Brown (Red vs. Blue) as Pyrrha Nikos, Neath Oum (RWBY: Grimm Eclipse) as Lie Ren, Samantha Ireland (RWBY Chibi) as Nora Valkyrie and Shannon McCormick (Get Backers, Day 5) and Aaron Dismuke (Fullmetal Alchemist) as Ozma/Ozpin.
Created by the late Monty Oum (Red vs. Blue), RWBY is one of Rooster Teeth’s most beloved, viewed and shared series. As the first western-produced anime series to be distributed in Japan, RWBY episodes have averaged more than 7 million views, and the franchise has accumulated over 271 million views since its inception. To date, the series has sold nearly 670k units sold on DVD and Blu-ray, and registered consumer products sales in excess of $20 million. RWBY has a fervent fanbase in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan
Concurrent to the series now being distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, RWBY is receiving a new manga from Shonen Jump, as well as a new young adult novel from Scholastic releasing on July 21, 2020. RWBY DC Comics Volume 1 will arrive during the 2020 holiday season, and Rooster Teeth is producing three new RWBY-based series this year: a new short-form animated series, a live-action Dungeons & Dragons style show, and a live-action behind-the-scenes talk show.
“RWBY Volume 7 represents the next step in the expanding partnership between Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Rooster Teeth, bringing this epic anime series – with its elaborate storytelling, kickass action and eye-catching animation – to fans across the globe,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing.
RWBY Volume 7
From screenwriter Julian Meiojas comes DNA, a thrilling neon-noir series of novellas from digital publisher NeoText. The multi-part, futuristic jaunt follows anti-hero protagonist Ram, a low-level, irreverent “process server” at the Death Notification Agency. Set in a twisted future America, DNA is accompanied by spot illustrations from Michah Dowbak (aka Mad Dog Jones), in his recognizable neon noir/neo-cyberpunk style.
Meet Ramsay Carnes. Known to his friends as "Ram,” he’s a process server – a reaper – for the Death Notification Agency, which is now the biggest government organization in the world thanks to a mysterious and highly-guarded technology that can determine the time of anyone's demise, right down to the minute. And it’s Ram’s job as a reaper to deliver death notices to soon-to-be-deceased citizens 24 hours before they give up the ghost.
Ram floats through his days letting folks know when their lives are about to go belly up, then heads to Nasty Nate’s Tavern in his aloha shirt to wash down the days with a well-earned drink or ten. And since the DNA’s never been wrong in predicting a death, Ram works with the confidence of knowing he’s doing his part to help people put their affairs in order and say goodbye to their loved ones in their final hours. But Ram’s simple life is about to get a lot more complicated when one night... he receives his own death notice.
"DNA has been a labor of love for me from the moment Ram’s juicy, expletive-laden voice popped into my head years ago, urging me to tell this story about a guy who only starts valuing – and living – his life once he gets the news he’s going to die," said writer Julian Meiojas. "Ram’s world where life and death has become a government-regulated business captivated me so much because I’ve always been fascinated by the rapid growth of technology and the drastic effect it has on our lives. Why not our deaths, too?"
DNA follows Ram as he now has to outrun his own death, travelling from sweat-drenched Florida down elevated sky roads to New York City, where the DNA’s skyscraper headquarters hides a secret that—if Ram digs deep enough—could unravel the truth behind not just his own death notice but the life and death business as he knows it.
DNA will be accompanied by spot illustrations from artist Mad Dog Jones, "I've been trying to find the inevitable beauty within a dystopia,” said Jones. “Even when all else seems lost, there will always be light, color and hope in the chaos and despair."
"I wanted to explore this paranoid feeling that maybe we don’t even have enough time to recalibrate before having to face the consequences of our own progress," added Meiojas. "Couple that with a deep admiration for 70s conspiracy thrillers and rage-against-the-machine masterworks like Taxi Driver and Bladerunner, and voila – you get Death Notification Agency. I couldn’t be more excited to tell Ram’s story over six volumes with NeoText, and hopefully give readers a popcorn hellride they enjoy as much as I did writing it."
A mind-bending and visually lush thrill ride, DNA’s first installment will be available October 13th for $1.99, with subsequent installments to follow in the coming weeks.

Forget everything you already knew about The Fabulous Killjoys! Writers Gerard Way and Shaun Simon, along with Illustrator Leonardo Romero (Hawkeye), colorist Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), and letterer Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy) team up to present an all-new modern day Killjoys series as Way and Simon take it all the way back to the original story that inspired My Chemical Romance’s concept album Danger Days and its dystopian comic book series in The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys: National Anthem.

After a period of mental confinement, former Killjoys leader Mike Milligram gets de-programmed and hits the road to bring the gang back together for a final showdown against an evil pharmaceutical corporation, their monstrous hitman, and savage gang rivals.

Rorschach #1 (of 12)
DC proudly presents a new 12-issue maxiseries debuting this October by Tom King (Mister Miracle) and Jorge Fornés (Batman), together delivering a new vision of one of the most riveting characters from Watchmen—a figure in a fedora and a trench coat, loved by some, reviled by others—Rorschach.
It’s been 35 years since Ozymandias was exposed for dropping a giant telepathic squid on New York City, killing thousands and ending the public’s trust in heroes once and for all. The Minutemen are gone; only their memory lives on. Especially the infamy of Rorschach, who has become a cultural icon since Dr. Manhattan turned him to dust.
Rorschach may have spoken truth, but he wasn’t a hero.
"Like the HBO Watchmen show and very much like the original ‘86 Watchmen, this is a very political work.” said King. “It’s an angry work. We’re so angry all the time now. We have to do something with that anger. It’s called Rorschach not because of the character Rorschach, but because what you see in these characters tells you more about yourself than about them.”
So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as part of a pair of assassins trying to kill the first candidate to oppose President Robert Redford in decades? Follow one determined detective as he walks backward in time, uncovering the identities and motives of the would-be killers, taking him deep into a dark conspiracy of alien invasions, disgraced do-gooders, mystical visions, and yes, comic books.
Writer Tom King joins forces with artist Jorge Fornés to explore the mythic qualities of one of the most compelling characters from the bestselling graphic novel of all time, Watchmen.
Rorschach #1, by Tom King, Jorge Fornés, Dave Stewart and Clayton Cowles, will publish on October 13, 2020, and carry DC’s Black Label descriptor, identifying the content as appropriate for readers ages 17+. The book will retail for $4.99 with card stock cover artwork by Fornés and a variant cover by Jae Lee.
Rorschach character co-created by Dave Gibbons.
Strange Adventures #6 (of 12)
Swamp Thing: Twin Branches
Illustrated by Morgan Beem
Colored by Jeremy Lawson
Lettered by Ariana Maher
The #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater (the Raven Cycle series) and artist Morgan Beem unearth the primal power of memory and how it twists the bond between two brothers.
Twins Alec and Walker Holland have a reputation around town. One is quiet and the other is the life of any party, but they are inseparable. For their last summer before college, the two leave the city to live with their rural cousins, where they find that the swamp holds far darker depths than they could have imagined.
While Walker carves their names into the new social scene, Alec recedes into a summer school laboratory, because he brought something from home on their trip—it’s an experiment that will soon consume him. This season, both brothers must confront truths ancient and familial, and as their lives diverge, tensions increase and dormant memories claw to the surface.
Swamp Thing: Twin Branches is a story of shadows literal and imagined—and those that take form and haunt us.
Stiefvater is the award-winning author of critically acclaimed and bestselling YA fantasy novels The Scorpio Races, the Raven Cycle series, and All the Crooked Saints, among many others. Swamp Thing: Twin Branches marks Steivfater’s first work with DC. The plot follows teenager Alec Holland—a socially awkward outcast with a love of botany—as he navigates his final summer before starting college, wishing to be seen and accepted for who he is by his peers and—most importantly—by his popular twin brother, Walker.
“We live in a world of increasing connectivity and increasing disconnect,” said Stiefvater. “It’s easier than ever to meet someone with shared interests, which makes it harder to realize that just because someone looks just like you, they may see the world in a completely different way. Nature and humanity, though, have always had this difficult and fascinating relationship, equal parts longing and logic and misunderstanding and projection, and I thought a reinvention of Swamp Thing would be an incredibly satisfying way to explore how hard complex relationships are as we learn who we are and what we need.”
Beem is an acclaimed comic book artist whose past works include Adventure Time and The Family Trade, among others.
“Working with Maggie was awesome,” said Beem. “She is such a charismatic, witty, and passionate human and writer. I am so excited about this book we have created together, along with the rest of our amazing team! For the art, I wanted to showcase something that really showed the full range of our character's feelings and struggles as a young human, and at the same time had a creepy, monstrous underbelly. I wanted our creature to be as much nightmarish monster as young person striving to find their place.”
Stiefvater added, “It was fun to see Morgan’s art grow wilder and more unsettling as the story desperately dug into the dirt and reached for the sun.”
Swamp Thing: Twin Branches is now available to pre-order and will hit stores and online retailers everywhere books are sold on October 13, 2020. See below for the official synopsis.

Michael Golden’s Micronauts Artist’s Edition HC
Over 40 years ago, Marvel debuted the influential Micronauts comic book series, licensed at the time from the Mego Corporation (the Micronauts brand has since been acquired by Hasbro). The original series quickly amassed a hardcore fan following, one that survives decades later thanks to the mesmerizing narrative by Bill Mantlo and otherworldly illustration of Michael Golden and fellow artists.
Out of print for 35 years, six complete issues of Micronauts (#3, #7-9, and #11-12) will be collected in the 184-page Artist’s Edition, alongside a gallery section of more than a dozen covers, art rarities from the era, and additional pages that represent some of Michael Golden’s very best from the Micronauts series. This gorgeous hardcover measures 12” x 17”.
“A Micronauts Artist’s Edition has been a holy grail for many comic art fans since the AE program was launched,” says Editor Scott Dunbier. “We are delighted that we can bring this book to fruition.”
As with all Artist’s Editions, nearly every gorgeous plate will be reproduced from scans of the original art and printed at the same size they were drawn, with all the distinctive creative nuances that make original art unique – a perfect representation of the work in its original form.
IDW will donate a portion of profits to the long-term medical care of Bill Mantlo, who has received treatment for cognitive and memory impairment since a 1992 hit-and-run accident.

Commanders in Crisis #1
Art: Davide Tinto
Fan favorite Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Doom Patrol: Milk Wars, Martian Manhunter) teams up with Davide Tinto (Marvel Action: Spider-Man) for a superhero story unlike any other in the forthcoming Commanders in Crisis. This new ongoing series is produced by Arancia Studio—the Italian media company which worked on Mirka Andolfo’s bestselling Image Comics titles—and will launch from Image Comics this October.
“Commanders in Crisis is all the energy and creativity I've served for the past five years, now completely unchained!” said Orlando. “No rules, no restraints, the type of strange and passionate ideas that brought me into the medium in the first place. Comics should be bold, comics should be big, and comics should be badass. This is my first freelance launch since 2015, and we're taking a nuclear shot across the bow. No vanilla vengeance here! This is a fight for comics as they need to be.”
The last survivors of the Multiverse live among us under new, superheroic identities, five survivors of doomed worlds...taking a second chance to ensure our world lives on. A new twist on strange superhero comics, with a bleeding-edge eye on the modern moment, Commanders in Crisis follows in the footsteps of Doom Patrol and Thunderbolts as five unexpected heroes come together to solve a murder unlike any other. The victim? Compassion itself…This is ideacide!
Tinto added: “I am really happy about being onboard for Commanders In Crisis. Steve is a great guy and a fantastic writer and publishing with Image Comics, which put out Invincible, my favorite superhero comic, is a dream come true. I am very thankful for the opportunity.”
This intense, weird action thriller will remind readers of the importance of compassion and hope in the present moment—all while putting fists to faces along the way!
Commanders in Crisis #1 variant covers
The upcoming series Commanders In Crisis by Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Doom Patrol: Milk Wars, Martian Manhunter) and Davide Tinto (Marvel Action: Spider-Man) will feature two virgin, without trade dress, incentive covers of the Mirka Andolfo (1:10) and Peach Momoko (1:25) variants.

Dracula Motherf**Ker HC
Bestselling writer Alex de Campi (Archie vs. Predator) and Erica Henderson (Squirrel Girl) team up for a pulpy, pulse-pounding, original graphic novel titled Dracula, Motherf**ker. This California-set, psychological horror story will hit stores from Image Comics in October.
Straddling two different timelines, Dracula, Motherf**ker travels between Vienna, 1889 where Dracula’s brides nail him to the bottom of his coffin and Los Angeles, 1974: wherein an ageing starlet decides to raise the stakes. Crime scene photographer Quincy Harker is the only man who knows it happened, but will anyone believe him... before he gets outlined in chalk himself?
“Most people who know my work are aware that I love pulp/exploitation cinema so me doing a book called Dracula, Motherf**ker shouldn’t really surprise anyone,” said De Campi. “Another thing I wanted to bring to this pulp fantasia was a sensibility from horror anime, with its love of transformation and of the noncorporeal, to push the element of man-as-monster in directions specifically suited to sequential art. Things like the abstract portrayal of Alucard (or Pride in FMA: Brotherhood), and the use of Superflat art in Madoka Magica were tremendously inspirational in this book, especially as that use of flatness dovetails nicely with the work of Gustav Klimt in with the book’s 1889 prologue, and with late-1960s pop art and the psychedelic liquid-light projections of the Joshua Light Show.
Erica Henderson has been an absolute dream to work with. She brings so, so much to the book, from her expert visual storytelling skills and her experimental, wildly exciting use of colour in this story to her appreciation of my Demi Moore jokes. When I saw there’s a nocturne page which is chartreuse silhouettes on a cobalt background, I nearly died, it was so striking. Erica’s so famous from Squirrel Girl so people frequently think of her in terms of her skill with comedy, but seriously, she can do ANYTHING. And watching what she does with Dracula, Motherf**ker? There’s a lyricism of line and mastery of colour that blows everything else she’s done out of the water. That splash on page two makes me think of Kuniyoshi, and she’s brought so much in from blaxploitation film posters, pulp detective novel/Robert McGinnis colours... I’m really not worthy. People will be talking about her art on this book for a long time.”
The perfect standalone story for fans of BBC One’s recent miniseries Dracula, this is an action-filled twist on the classic Bram Stoker vampire tale.
Fire Power #3 2nd Ptg
The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning pop culture phenomenon Robert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead) has caught lightning in a bottle once more on his co-creation with Eisner winning artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil), Eisner Award winning colorist Matt Wilson (Paper Girls, The Wicked + The Divine), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead) in the new series—Fire Power. Issues #1 and #3 are being rushed back to print in order to keep up with breakout customer demand.
Despite a total of 200K copies of Fire Power #1 already pumped into circulation, the launch issue has sold out at the distributor level, alongside Fire Power #3, with backorders piling up.
“Launching a new series is always an uphill climb, but it turns out, NOT when you have Chris Samnee in tow!” said Kirkman. “Response to this series has been overwhelmingly positive and despite massive overprints we're selling out left and right! This is a book we've been laboring over for nearly two years in secret so to finally launch to this response is very gratifying... and to think, we haven't even gotten to the good stuff yet!”
In the new series Fire Power, Owen Johnson's journey to China to learn about his birth parents eventually leads him to a mysterious Shaolin Temple. The students there study The Fire Power—the lost art of throwing fireballs. A power they claim will be needed soon to save the world. Will Owen Johnson be the first person in a thousand years to wield the Fire Power?
Fire Power #1, second printing and Fire Power #3, second printing will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 14.

Stillwater #1 2nd Ptg
Image/Skybound’s upcoming horror series Stillwater—by The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning writer Chip Zdarsky (The White Trees, Daredevil, Sex Criminals) and Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning artist Ramón K. Pérez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand, Jane)—is being rushed back to print in order to spread more chills this October.
“Look, I’m not mad if you didn’t buy our first printing. I get it," said Zdarsky, through gritted teeth. "You work hard, you’re a busy person, and it’s tough finding time to make it down to your comic store on Wednesdays. This second print will catch you up in time for issue two, which you’ll surely have on order now so this doesn’t happen again. Take care, Chip.”
In the town of Stillwater, nobody dies. That’s not just a promise. It’s a threat. This eerie new series is the perfect read for all the Halloween vibes and promises fans even more terror to come.

Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar #1
Written by Kieron Gillen
Art by Jacen Burrows
Variant Cover by Games Workshop
Variant Cover by Max Dunbar
A legendary Space Marine Chapter Master of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Marneus Calgar leads his elite Ultramarines against humanity’s greatest threats and has had his dark past shrouded in mystery…until now. This October, writer Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Journey Into Mystery, The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Jacen Burrows (Punisher: Soviet, Moon Knight) will unite to tell Marneus Calgar’s never-before-told origin story - from his beginnings on the world of Nova Thulium, his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and to the unfolding mystery of the Black Altar as a deadly threat from his past reemerges to threaten the present of the Ultramar system.
Gillen, a veteran player of the Warhammer tabletop miniature wargame, can barely contain his enthusiasm for the series. “I am venerable enough to have bought Rogue Trader in 1987,” he reveals. “Since then, I like to think every hastily dry-brushed Necron, every badly edge-highlighted Marine, every ignored Harlequin (as painting Motley petrified me) has prepared me for writing the first Warhammer comics for Marvel. If I said, ‘Getting to explore the roots of Marneus Calgar and setting the stage for Marvel's Warhammer comics is a dream come true,’ I would be betraying everything this grim future should be since ‘dream’ implies the possibility of hope. But getting to do this is the sort of thing Slaanesh would wave in my direction if she wanted me coming over to the tentacle-y side.”
“Or to translate for those less indoctrinated in 40K,” he concludes, “I'm excited.”
“Part of the reason I said yes is I because I believe with Marvel I can do a 40K comic “properly"— as in, with all the skill and craft I've learned over the years. If I'm going to do a 40K comic as a mature creator I'd like to hit it hard,” Gillen explained in an interview with CBR. “The other part is, as the writer of the first mini in the Warhammer line I get to set the tone for everything else. Also, I get to introduce folks to the world. You asked me how I would explain Warhammer to somebody? I'd do that by giving them my mini.”
Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Global Head of Licensing adds: “When we first started working with Marvel on comics, we knew it was going to lead to something exceptional, and it really has. We were both keen to focus on one of the most central Warhammer characters there is and tell their origin story, something that Marvel does oh so brilliantly. Kieron’s depth of Warhammer knowledge mixed with his extraordinary comic writing skill has delivered a unique series that further expands upon the already massive 40K lore. As huge comic fans ourselves we couldn’t be more excited about this first expression of our partnership with Marvel.”
“Give us two pages. It’s the full heavy-metal power that 40k needs to look like. You'll see there's no other sci-fi comic, by Marvel or anyone else that feels like this. This is my love song to a hell on earth, and the guitars are Spinal-Tap-ian in their desire to go to 11,” Gillen told Newsarama in a recent interview. “Jacen’s work is something I've always loved – the architect's eye for structure (and destruction). The way his approach grounds the fantasy, and executes the most horribly complicated stuff. Jacen seems as happy as I am. He said there's a spread in issue 1, which he thinks is the best thing he's ever drawn, and I have to agree.”
This never-before-told tale will be essential reading for 40K aficionados, as well as the perfect primer to the Warhammer 40,000 universe for those new to it. It will also be but the first foray into the larger darkness that is coming from Games Workshop and Marvel Comics. Don’t miss the first issue when it comes crashing into comic shops and the Marvel Comics App this October!

The Devil's Red Bride #1
16th century Japan. The fates of warlords ebb and flow like tides of blood, none more than the Aragami Clan who follow their lord clad in the ‘Red Devil’ mask into every battle. But when Lord Aragami succumbs to illness, his daughter, the fierce Ketsuko, hatches a plot to save her people, no matter the cost…
Years later, as Ketsuko wanders the heaving battlefields of her ruined homeland, she discovers a chance to avenge the terrible wrong done to her clan, even if it means stepping back onto a road steeped in slaughter.
From writer Sebastin Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter!, Scales & Scoundrels) and artist John Bivens (Creature Feature, Spread) comes a blood-drenched love letter to Samurai fiction in a chilling tale of guilt, trauma, and vengeance.
"I’ve never been more excited (and disturbed) to write a story as I have this one," remarked THE DEVIL'S RED BRIDE writer and co-creater, Sebastian Girner. "Into it flowed a lifetime of my fascination with revenge-as-motivation, of Samurai and Japanese history in general, and sprinklings of dark fantasy and supernatural horror to round out what I hope to be a full comics five-course."
"Though clearly a work of fiction I’ve tried to contextualize the narrative with some historical authenticity," added Girner. "The era in which our story is set, the famous Sengoku Jidai (“the era of warring states”) was a period in Japanese history from the 15th through the 16th century, which was marked by near-constant civil warfare, and political turmoil, in which many a feudal lord saw their chance to climb the ladder of chaos. A fitting backdrop for a story about power, revenge, and regret."
"And though female Samurai, or onna-bugeisha, have never quite enjoyed the same level of popularity (for all the usual trite reasons) as their male counterparts, they were ever a part of their country’s turbulent history, and I encourage anyone interested in exploring futher to read up on the fascinating life of the 13th century warrior Tomoe Gozen, whose near-mythical status one would be remiss not to mention as a clear inspiration for this book’s lead."
Series artist and co-creator John Bivens, added, "the movies I think of when drawing these pages are ONI BABA, EL MARIACHI, and EVIL DEAD 2. The soundtrack playing in my background is a mix of hard-core noise and Japanese 70’s funk. Moments in the story remind me of reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark for the first time. Sebastian has crafted an awesome story, and I am grateful he asked me to help visualize it. I hope that people either think, “They couldn’t ever translate this to film.” or “I wish they would make this into a movie, but damn it would have to be unrated.”
THE DEVIL'S RED BRIDE #1 hits store shelves in October 2020, and will launch with a variant cover by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel.
