World of Warcraft # 25

The World of Warcraft comic book ongoing series continues to amaze fans with the introduction of Garona and her son Med’an 10 issues ago.  The story arc is just exciting with all the revelations. The hints of an upcoming cataclysm to be provoked by Cho’gall and his Twilight’s Hammer who wish to free the Old gods. And most importantly the founding of the new Council of Tirisfal which is composed of Jaina Proudmoore, Aegwynn, Meryl Winterstorm, Med’an, Valeera Sanguinar and Vindicator Maraad.

This solicitation is for issue # 25, and as you heard recently from us, this is the issue that marks the close of the story arc—which will trigger the split of the WoW Comics into two spin-off titles.  One for the Alliance and another title focused on the Horde.  In the previous issue (# 21), we learned Vindicator Maraad is Garona’s uncle, thus Grand Uncle of Med’an.  The young Med’an wishes to learn Light’s magic from him, and if the cover of issue # 25 is any indication—he is learning pretty fast.

Med’an wears plate shoulderpads and gauntlets in this cover.  Not only is he the son of the Last Guardian Medivh—he is learning to master arcane, shaman and now Light magic. Can you see Broll?  Is he back from his adventures in the Emerald Dream?  During my interview with Walter and Louise Simonson at the New York Comic Con 2009, they revealed some of their characters would show up in other writer’s novels.  It is very probable that Broll will be one of them in World of Warcraft: Stormrage (February 23, 2010).  Meryl Winterstorm appears in the upcoming Warcraft Legends Vol. 5 (September 8, 2009) in the story The First Guardian by Louise Simonson (who also writes alongside her husband Walter Simonson in the Wildstorm WoW Comic Book).

In case you wonder, that’s not Valeera Sanguinar in the front cover.  That character hasn’t been introduced yet.  By the color of her tabard, she is a Scryer Blood Elf from Shattrath City.

WORLD OF WARCRAFT # 25

The bonus-sized epic final showdown! Will Med’an and the newly formed Council of Tirisfal vanquish the evil Cho’gall and the Twilight’s Hammer? Will the unlikely union of Horde and Alliance be torn asunder?

World of Warcraft # 23

Things continue to get hotter with the revelation that Medivh is the father of Garona’s child Med’an.  Vindicator Maraad, Valera and Med’an travel to Karazhan to talk to the Shade of Medivh at the chessboard room.  It would be very interesting to see what they will encounter in this dungeon, taking in mind all the bosses we have fought there with nebulous, nigh-to-none background lore.  My suspicious keep pointing toward Maraad been somehow related to Garona and Med’an, but that’s not been proven to be true thus far.  Because you know, Garona is half-draenei—at least her son has tendrils on his chin and draenei features to back that up.  Keep your eyes peeled on the ongoing series. Beneath is the solicitations.

World of WarCraft # 20 Preview Scans

The preview scans for World of WarCraft # 20 are now available highlighting the Scourge Invasion to Orgrimmar and Stormwind.  The artwork is pretty good, and what may strike some fans as odd is that while the Alliance needed the assistance of Ironforge, including mercenary goblins to defeat the Scourge Invasion in Stormwind, Thrall single-handedly stroke down a Necropolis with the aid of his Doomhammer and the elemental spirits. Holy … I mean, Storm, Earth and Fire heed my call!  Yeh-yea, Thrall faked his near-defeat before Garrosh Hellscream.  Next month will be thrilling too with Cho’gall’s plans to resurrect C’thun unfolding, and the kidnapping of Garona by Vindicator Maraad.  Could Vindicator Maraad be part of Garona’s bloodline or is he simply acting in response to a vision of the future granted by the Naaru? If all that doesn’t sound exciting I can’t imagine why you haven’t subscribed to the ongoing comic book series yet.

World of Warcraft # 20

The solicitation for World of Warcraft # 20 is available, and it looks like the comic book is starting to catch up with Wrath of the Lich King. As shown in previous issues, Garrosh Hellscream is already in Orgrimmar, and accompanies Thrall and Rehgar Earthfury to the peace summit with Varian Wrynn (Lo’gosh) at Theramore.

Now the Scourge attacks the Alliance and the Horde. Are we gonna see some zombies shrieking the word: “BRRAIIIIIINNNSSS !!!” We will have to wait and see.

World of Warcraft # 15 Preview – Garona Birthed A Half-Human Baby?

imageFrom the creative minds of Wildstorm’s World of Warcraft comic book writer Walter Simonson (Mighty Thor) and Chris Metzen, Blizzard has released a loregasmic preview teaser of World of Warcraft # 15.  After King Varian Wrynn decapitated Onyxia’s corpse to display her head in Stormwind, Garona makes her appearance for the first time since the events from Warcraft: The Last Guardian.  The preview reveals that shortly after Garona assassinated King Llane, she found out about her … pregnancy.  She gave the baby to an ancient human mage, named Meryl,  to raise him. It is now confirmed that Garona was cursed by Sargeras to betray and do things against her will. Therefore, she couldn’t bare to rise her own child for fear she would kill him.

This plot brings about so many intriguing questions. Who is the father of Garona’s baby? Medivh? Khadgar?  King Llane? On the other hand, Meryl is described as undead, but one who has lived by sheer will and through the use of his own magical powers to prolong his life for milennia; he exists even before Ner’zhul created the Scourge. Is Meryl one of the previous Guardians of Tirisfal?

Garona’s baby has grown up, and there is a prophecy behind him found in a scroll digged from Hellfire Peninsula. This child is to become the savior of Azeroth. Do you feel the vibe that this guy, Med’an, is the heir of Medivh? Watch the PDF preview and get that HOT comic book at a newsstand near you!

This issue will be on newsstands on January 21.

In stores 1/21.

The road back to Theramore begins in issue #15 of the ongoing series. After the events of the last arc, King Varian and Prince Anduin must return home. But who will return with them? And what role will Garona Halforcen play in this next quest? Check out the preview pages.

If you like what you see, you can visit Wildstorm for more information, locate a nearby comic store (type zipcode), or subscribe to the series directly.

Wildstorm: World of Warcraft # 17 Solicitations

DC Wildstorm Comics have provided us with solicitations for World of Warcraft # 17 (March 2009) where King Varian and Thrall will meet for the first time in Theramore. This will fill up the gap of what happened during The Battle for the Undercity questline. It seems Garona Halforcen has returned to make things worse for the Horde when a pact of peace is about to crumble, climaxing later on at the Wrathgate.

On another note, Wildstorm has also announced the World of Warcraft: Ashbringer # 1-4 comic book limited series will be reprinted as a hardcover on May 27, compiling all four issues within. Good news for those who missed the standalone issues. A reminder that the Ashbringer comic book was written by Blizzard Enrtertainment’s Creative Design team member: Micky Neilson, who also wrote The Road of Damnation (Kel’Thuzad), The Unbroken (Akama) and Starcraft: Uprising (Kerrigan).
