DC Comics released the hardcover of World of WarCraft: Ashbringer by Blizzard Entertainment’s Senior Writer and Voice Director Micky Neilson.  Among his previous works are the story of Akama (The Unbroken), Kel’Thuzad (Road of Damnation) and Ahn’Qiraj (War of the Shifting Sands).

In this hardcover, he tells the story of Alexandros Mograine and his sons Renault and Darion Mograine. It is a must-have in your collection of WoW lore books.

French artist Ludo Lullabi excels in this limited series with the best artwork done in the World of Warcraft comics. The colors are so vibrant and fitting.

There is an extra bonus in the hardcover that wasn’t present in the stand-alone issues.  There is a special prologue that reveals a lot of juicy stuff.  There was a Burning Legion spy within the ranks of the Argent Dawn, we get a scene where Balnazzar and Varimathras had a private meeting, and Grand Apothecary Putress is making his first lore reference in a printed media.

The story of the Ashbringer ends where the Wrath of the Lich King expansion picks up … the Death Knight class starting location and initial quests leading to the battle at Light’s Hope where Darion Mograine joins Tirion Fordring against Arthas the Lich King.

Collecting the 4-issue ASHBRINGER miniseries, this rollicking adventure begins as the Lich King’s plague of undeath ravages the human kingdom of Lordaeron. Hidden away, a mighty blade is forged from a dark orb
