    Warhammer Monthly last edited by downinthesewer on 05/27/23 07:44PM View full history

     Warhammer Monthly was a comics anthology published by Games Workshop's publishing arm, Black Library, from March 1998 to December 2004, running to 86 issues in total. The final two issues were published bi-monthly under the name Warhammer Comic. It featured stories set within the fictional universe of Games Workshop's miniature wargames Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, amongst others.

    The comic used an anthology format, usually featuring three or four stories each of seven to eight pages in length. The stories in Warhammer Monthly  were usually serialised, and would run for several months. The most popular stories returned for more series, and were often collected in trade paperback form.

    The December 2002 issue of the comic book was called Warhammer Warped Visions. It featured one-shot variations of Black Library's most popular comics, but with their settings reversed between the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes. For example, the Dark Elf Malus Darkblade was portrayed as a Dark Eldar, while the Titan Imperius Dictatio was shown as an Empire Steam Tank.

    Warhammer Monthly was cancelled after issue 86 as sales were poor in comparison to the numerous novels Black Library were producing.[citation needed]

    In 2006, Games Workshop licensed the comic books rights to Boom! Studios. That publisher's first Warhammer 40,000 release was Damnation Crusade, written by Warhammer Monthly stalwart Dan Abnett.

    In 2007, The Black Library started the Warhammer Monthly Archive, a site with free PDF versions of the comics which they hope to update regularly.
