Don't worry. None of this blood is mine.


Just a quickie.

I figure some of you might be interested a certain fellow shown in this artwork…:





Here’re the details of BL’s blog post on the subject, relating to the HH Weekender.

And for no reason, here’s Shakes dressed as Spider-Man:



And now… away!

  1. NICE! Love that Sevatar, may have to get that novella just for the novelty. Will it contain anything new or is it just a reprint of PoC?

    And Shakes looks cool as your friendly neighbourhood webslinger, though he’d look cooler as Green Arrow. 🙂

  3. I’d normally complain about BL releasing the same story in so many formats but this is Prince Of Crows we’re talking about. so bring on the graphic novel!

    • Looks like… what?

      • It’s wrestling vernacular. It means that the Dark Angels are going to make the Night Lords, and particularly Sevatar, look good. Look up “The Worf Effect” on TvTropes for more information.

      • That’s what makes no sense, though.

        Is that the same Sevatar whose Legion was just broken by the Dark Angels; whose primarch had his throat cut by the Lion in a fight that lasted three seconds; who argues with his own primarch for their Legion’s hypocrisy and inability to hold a world as efficiently as the loyalist primarchs; whose fleet was completely scattered across half the galaxy twice in two devastating retreats/losses inflicted by the Dark Angels; whose elite First Company were all butchered and captured in a vainglorious boarding action that played right into the Dark Angels’ hands; and who himself is a prisoner of the First Legion, becoming the only First Captain to suffer the humiliation of capture? And this was after a protracted two-year campaign in Thramas, where their idea of victory was to run away from the Dark Angels rather than stand and fight.

        Or… a different Sevatar? If it’s purely that he kills lesser warriors easily, well, that’s practically what “First Captain” means. It’s not like he invented it. Look to Abaddon, Sigismund, and so on for his inspiration on that score.

      • And how much of all that did we actually READ instead of being told in snippets?

        Comment by VP | April 29, 2014 | Reply

      • Again, that makes no sense. You don’t get to see both sides of every story, in every novel. Just because it’s not shown on-screen doesn’t mean it’s not true. If every single movie and novel stopped to tell both sides of every conflict, the world would be a vastly different place.

        You should be able to infer this stuff without it being spoonfed, and beyond that there’s the fact that in a license like this there’ll be other stories from that faction’s point of view showing X, Y and Z.

        If you can’t tell the Night Lords constantly lose from the fact they… constantly lose… most of which is perfectly visible (the story is the literal aftermath of one defeat, and shows yet another) and honestly believe that’s doing an injustice to the Dark Angels, then so be it.

  6. This is so awesome, I hope we kick the shit out of the dark angels. I wish black library will give the talon master Zso sahaal some love. He needs to be brought into more books.

  7. Honestly, PoC has been my all-time favorite HH story yet…and I will argue that point to anyone! Thanks, Aaron.
