A dynamic new story in the Warhammer 40,000 franchise, from popular Warhammer 40,000 author Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Collects issues #1-4 of the Warhammer 40,000 Deathwatch mini-series. The Deathwatch calls on the deadliest Space Marines, recruiting from every Chapter in the galaxy, to serve as a last line of defense against the alien horrors threatening humanity. To serve in the Deathwatch is an honor granted only to the elite, but the details of their sacred duty remain secret and sealed - except in these pages! Stranded and alone at the edge of the Calaphrax Cluster, one Deathwatch kill-team must hold the line against the xenos hordes. Assailed on all sides, they alone have the strength to stem the tide… whatever the cost!.
