Dark Horse and Blizzard Entertainment announce new comic series about the Warcraft Universe History. World of Warcraft: Chronicle promises to dig further into the lore of a game already full of lore. Telling the tales of myth and legend that made Azeroth what it is today. The world’s origin, ancient civilizations no longer around, and more!
“We often get questions from players who want to know more about the origins of the Warcraft universe, and the rise and fall of their favorite characters” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “This new series digs deeply into all of that—we can’t wait for players to read it.”
The 20 page hardcover book, illustrated by World of Warcraft artist Peter Lee, is the first volume in this new series and is expected to go on sale November 4th, 2015.
“This is an amazing project that will be absolutely irresistible to the legion of Warcraft fans. The people at Blizzard have been great to work with and we are extremely happy and proud to be working with them,” -Dark Horse President Mike Richardson.
I never really got into World of Warcraft but as an avid comic book reader and fan of fantasy I can see this series making its way onto my bookshelf once released. Is the origin and history of the Warcraft Universe of interest to you? Or do you think it’s an attempt to regenerate interest into a game on it’s decline? Put your thoughts in the comments!
