World of Warcraft Comic Book @ San Diego Comic Con?

The schedule for San Diego Comic Con 2007 has been released, and by the looks of it there will be a World of Warcraft comic book to be shown there.  This is mere interpretation. So I will tag this as rumor until we get a clarification.  Don’t hold your breath however.  I have known for over a month that Sideshow Collectibles will unveil a secret World of Warcraft Collectible statue at San Diego Comic Con.  This schedule might be just saying different companies will showcase different and unrelated products separately. Personally, I am a comic book junkie with over 1,500 Xmen issues.  I would love to see a World of Warcraft or Starcraft comic book. If you go to San Diego Comic Con send us images and tell us what you saw there from Blizzard.  Contact me here. This is what will happen on Friday, July 27.
