The original God of War trilogy on PlayStation was nothing short of iconic and Santa Monica’s continuation with the overhaul made a beloved franchise even better. That being said, there was a lot left unsaid following the events of the original trilogy, events that will be explored in a new comic series from Dark Horse called God of War: Fallen God.
Written by Chris Roberson, the new comic series kicks off with issue #1 on March 10, 2021 and will explore a narrative surrounding a troubled Kratos trying to escape his past. “Can the tides of time ever wash away the blood sands of sin,” asks the introduction to the new God of War comic. “Or do transpired trespasses permanently and inescapably stain one’s soul?”
Alongside Roberson taking the helm as the new comic’s writer is artist Tony Parker, letterer John Roshell, and the colorist Dan Jackson. We also have stunning cover art from Dave Rapoza, as seen below:

Fallen God is an all-new tale set between the events of God of War III and 2018’s God of War. According to the comic’s publisher:
After conquering Zeus and thwarting Athena, Kratos believes himself to be finally free from his bondage. He sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven to be unconquerable–himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable, and only invites madness.
