Ahead of New York Comic Con this week, Marvel Comics has announced a new partnership with Games Workshop to produce comics based on the popular tabletop game Warhammer. The first of these comics will be released in Fall of next year. Will Marvel bring characters from Warhammer into the Marvel Universe like they did with Conan the Barbarian? Or will it have its own continuity like Star Wars? It may be a while until we find out, but for now, check out the press release below.
