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.
