Horus Heresy: Macragge's Honour (Comicbook Review)
Despite its critical acclaim among journalists and fans alike, there was always one line in Know No Fear which irked its readers:
“It is the beginning of one of the most infamous naval duels in Imperial history.”
That was the last we saw of the Ultramarines flagship, wounded but still deadly, powering away from the warzone in pursuit of Kor Phaeron’s battle barge, the Infidus Imperator. The two exited the book, and ever since fans have been chomping at the bit to see what fate had in store for the conflict and the Macragge’s Honour. Well, we were finally given our answer and, in all honesty, it’s not the battle many wanted. It’s not bad by any means, but it hardly lives up to that teasing line.
