WoW Comic Upcoming!

I’m not sure how I missed the news of this until now, but DC Comics has teamed up with Blizzard to publish an ongoing WoW comic. The first story arc is a twelve-parter, although I’m not sure if it’s continuing to a new story or ends a limited run there. The first six pages are available for preview here.

More news as it comes to hand; I’ll try and pick up the first issue when it’s released on Nov 14th, and give it a bit of a review. It’s definitely got potential, though – I think WoW lends itself very well to comics, much more so than the novel lines. It’s such a visual setting that it’s hard to do it justice in prose (especially given the nature and typical quality of tie-in genre fiction), whereas a comic is somehow cooler.

  1. Looks pretty good! I was hoping for a good time with Walt Simonson writing; he may be the most thoroughly gets-it guy in American comics when it comes to mythology and folklore feel. Dave’s Long Box offers up a look at one of his absolute best stories, so that you can see why us old-time comics junkies started salivating upon reading his name.

  2. Although I enjoy comics very much, I don’t know nearly enough about the names in the industry to draw distinctions like this – but if those who do are happy and confident about the WoW comic, well, that’s good enough for me. :)
