From Games Workshop's Warhammer Monthly to Marvel's Marneus Calgar, here's every comic ever published for Warhammer and Warhammer 40k.

Over the decades there have been dozens of Warhammer comics set in both the grim dark future of Warhammer 40k, and the low-fantasy grit of the Warhammer Old World. Starting in the pages of Games Workshop’s Inferno Magazine in 1997, the property has moved through several publishers, creating a tangled history of different stories.

Fortunately, we’re here to sort them out for you. This is a complete history of every Warhammer comic, with information about all the collected trade paperbacks, plus the Warhammer armies and Warhammer 40k factions that feature in each comic.

If you’re a comics reader looking for inspiration, we’ve got guides to the best graphic novels, and recommendations of where to start with the best Marvel comics, best DC comics, best Image comics, best Dark Horse comics… Otherwise…

Here are all the Warhammer comics yet published:

Inferno Magazine

Games Workshop published the short-fiction anthology magazine Inferno! from 1997 to 2004. It hosted a small number of comics, almost all of which were self-contained, though some would be expanded into full series in the pages of Warhammer Monthly.

Obvious Tactics

Obvious Tactics was the only serial comic published in Inferno. Black Library later published the whole story in a collected volume under the Warhammer Monthly label. Written by David Pugh, Obvious Tactics stars a pair of Blood Angels and a Callidus Assassin stranded in a city overrun by the forces of Nurgle.

Warhammer Monthly

Games Workshop published the anthology comic Warhammer Monthly from 1998 to 2004, running to 86 issues. Many extremely popular comics from Warhammer Monthly have been collected into volumes by Black Library and reissued. Sadly those collected stories are currently out of print with Games Workshop, so you will need to search eBay to find them.

Warhammer Monthly was the origin of several characters who later received tabletop miniatures, including the Dark Elf Mallus Darkblade, Sister of Battle Ephrael Stern, and the Necromunda special characters Kal Jericho and The Redeemer. It’s also an early example of Dan Abnett writing an inconceivable quantity of stories for Warhammer all at once.

The Ultramarines movie comic

The special edition DVD for the 2010 animated Ultramarines movie featured a 32 page prequel comic, written by Dan Abnett, called “‘Hard Choices ‘What happened on Algol?’”.

Ultramarines is totally unavailable in any digital format – rumor has it that Games Workshop is so embarrassed by the legendarily bad film that it would rather pretend it doesn’t exist. Equally, licensing snafus may be at play. Don’t expect this to receive a reissue.

Black Library graphic novels

While Black Library has published many collections of comics that first appeared in Warhammer monthly, and also distributes comics published by Titan Comics, it has only published a single totally original graphic novel: Macragge’s Honour.

Macragge’s Honour

Author Dan Abnett, Neil Roberts
Setting Horus Heresy
Main faction Ultramarines, Word Bearers

Set during the Horus Heresy after the Ultramarine-controlled world of Calth is devastated by the treachery of the Word Bearers, the crew of the warship Macragge’s Honour pursue the arch-heretic Kor Phaeron into the warp.

Titan Comics Warhammer 40k titles

Between 2016 and 2018 Titan Comics held the licence to produce Warhammer 40k comics. The main series was simply called “Warhammer 40,000”, and ran to fill two trade paperback volumes.

If that’s somehow not enough comics goodness for you, might we suggest that both Batman comics and horror comics will be a good tonal fit for anyone who likes reading about the horrific Warhammer worlds?
