With another Chaos focused tale focusing upon the Horus Heresy’s aftermath, Bellarius steps in to give his own verdict on Khârn: Eater of Worlds.

Mephiston-Lord-of-Death

Going back to the beginning, Bellarius analyses Gordon Rennie’s tie-in duology depicting the main conflict throughout Battlefleet Gothic.

Inquisitor Ascendant by Dan Abnett and Simon Coleby – Comic Review [Bellarius]

Inquisitor-Ascendant

Digging up another forgotten remnant of Black Library’s past, Bellarius gives his thoughts on Inquisitor Ascendant.

“A classic example of how even the perfect writer for a comic can still produce dreck beyond comprehension.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields
