Titan Comics is releasing a prequel comic for Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon ahead of the film’s debut on Netflix Dec. 22.

Rebel Moon: House of the Bloodaxe is a four-part series based on a story by Snyder and written by Eisner-nominated Mags Visaggio (Kim & Kim, Transformers vs. The Visionaries) with art from Clark Bint (Killtopia, Murder Most Mundane) and colors from Francesco Segala (Over the Ropes). Arriving Jan. 10, 2024, Issue #1 includes four different covers, illustrated by Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau, Rafael Albuquerque, Baldemar Rivas, and Andrea Olimpieri, respectively. Check out the covers below:

“I’m excited to collaborate with Mags to explore the rich and complex backstory of the Bloodaxe siblings,” Snyder said of the comic. “In REBEL MOON: HOUSE OF THE BLOODAXE, fans will get to discover their motivation, as well as the genesis of the rebellion.”

Visaggio describes the series as a “Shakespearean tragedy… It’s all extremely personal, a family in conflict with its patriarch who is in conflict with himself at a moment when they need to be united. It’s a story about failure and the consequences of failure.”


Set 5 years before the events depicted in Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire, the comic HOUSE OF THE BLOODAXE provides backstory for the characters of Devra and Darrian Bloodaxe, leaders of a band of outlaw revolutionaries (played by Cleopatra Coleman and Ray Fisher), and their formidable family’s history.

As war is looming on the horizon on the planet Shasu, the leader of the Bloodaxe family is conflicted between living up to his father’s domineering legacy and maintaining the peace. It is up to him to settle the conflicts within himself, and his family, before the entire planet erupts in war.

Rebel Moon: House of the Bloodaxe hits comic shop shelves and debuts digitally on Jan. 10, 2024. Fans can visit their local comic shop and Forbidden Planet in the UK & Europe for a copy.
