Warhammer 40k an in depth analysis: Introduction

This series will contain an in depth analysis of the major concepts, factions and themes that can be found within the Warhammer 40k universe created by Games Workshop UK. We will start with analysing each faction, theme and narrative individually. Later we will compare and contrast these different parts against each other, as well as contrasting them against some real world concept.

The goal of this series of texts is to try and legitimize the analysis and discussion of , this and similar pop culture series. I also wish to help to spread a deeper intellectual discussion about the media you are passionate about.

Next time we will start our deep dive in to the The Imperium of Mankind, the totalitarian and Gothic description of humanity within the Warhammer 40k franchise.
