Well, more graphic might be a better way to put it. Black Library announced yesterday that they are working on a series of Graphic Novels for their beloved Horus Heresy series. The first book, which will weigh in at 100 pages, will be out in November of 2013. That’s a lot of advanced warning on a Graphic Novel but that just gives everyone more time to geek out about it. The book will be called Macragge’s Honour (complete with the British/correct spelling of honor) and “explores the epic naval battle that starts in Know No Fear when Kor Phaeron escapes in the Infidius Imperator and Chapter Master Marius Gage gives chase.”
This looks like a winner to us, what do you think?
The folks over at The Black Library have been awfully busy here lately, and it looks like that isn’t changing. A new collector series version of Angel Exterminatus has just been released along with Horus Rising, False Gods and Galaxy in Flames. These new hardback books have full image covers and “contain brand new artwork and an exclusive author afterword.” If you haven’t read any of these books yet this would certainly be a grand way to get into the series, and Black Library is hoping that even those of us who have already read them will love these new bookshelf trophies enough to buy another copy. Check out the video below and let us know what you think about these new editions.
Black Library, the company responsible for publishing all of those wonderful Warhammer 40k books we’ve been reviewing lately, is about to have their first ever ‘Weekender’ on November 3-4 in Nottingham. Sadly this event probably isn’t an option for those of us that don’t either live in the UK or have the cash to drop on a quick flight across the pond. It certainly sounds like an interesting affair with ” truly awesome and hilarious activities, seminars and game shows” planned for the weekend as well as a chance to meet a slew of authors and even get first crack at some new books. If any of you get to go let us know how it turns out, and we wouldn’t say no to a couple of autographed books while you’re at it!
