Blizzard Entertainment has published the third Battle for Azeroth digital comic “Three Sisters,” featuring the Windrunner sisters: Alleria, Sylvanas and Vereesa. Turalyon and Alleria arrive to Stormwind, and Alleria informs her husband that she must visit her homeland to secure the Windrunner Spire from the undead. She wishes to meet her sisters as well.
In the comics, we get a glimpse at Vereesa’s twin sons.
Alleria and Vereesa discuss the scene in the “WAR CRIMES” novel, where Vereesa and Sylvanas unite to assassinate Garrosh Hellscream with poison. At the time, Vereesa sorrowed Rhonin’s death.
The artwork in this comics does justice to World of Warcraft. Many props to artist Antonio Bifulco and colorist Sebastian Cheng. I wish future ones are as terrific good as Three Sisters.
Christie Golden and Andrew Robinson added a lot of continuity nods, and deliver the problematic drama about three sisters who each have followed a different path, each have a regret and an anger toward each other. However, they are bound together by love for each other. Bound by past memories. Maybe even bound by hope? Or maybe not.
At the end, we are left with a cliffhanger of sorts, about what the future might hold. That depends on the fate of one of them at the end of the Battle for Azeroth’s finale.
Personally, I would like to see more digital comics come out more often. One for the Horde readers, and one for the Alliance readers. Preferrably each chapter in the Battle for Azeroth story (Patch 8.1, 8.2, 8.3).
Download the THREE SISTERS digital comic.
Give @ChristieGolden and @Ardrous1 good vibes and feedback.
In this enthralling original graphic novel published in a landscape format, you will meet the PANDAREN, one of the most beloved (and mysterious) races in World of Warcraft! Written by Blizzard’s own Micky Neilson (the World of Warcraft MMORPG, World of Warcraft: Ashbringer and World of Warcraft: Curse of the Worgen), with art by fan favorite Sean “Cheeks” Galloway (TV’s Teen Titans Go and WEDNESDAY COMICS), this story ties directly into the upcoming World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion pack.
The tale introduces Li Li Stormstout, a precocious young student who lives atop a giant turtle called Shen-zin Su. Like the rest of the wandering island’s pandaren, Li Li comes from a line of adventurers who left their homeland long ago to explore the world…and she wants nothing more than to chase that dream. But when Li Li runs away to find her famous uncle Chen, how will she survive Azeroth’s perils?

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).
