Feature : World of Warcraft Manga.


With the release of a few more titles just around the bend, I thought it was time for an overview of the manga associated with the popular massively multiplayer game.

WoW's manga presence started with The Sunwell Trilogy, a three book series with a story involving a young woman, a blue dragon and the rebirth of the sunwell. The story from the manga tied into the end of the burning crusade expansion in WoW, with both characters from the manga appearing in game and playing a vital part in the last dungeon and raid instance in the game. The next trilogy which will continue on from there is titled The Dragons Of Outland, with the first manga Shadow Wing releasing soon, no doubt following the story of the nether dragons, the black dragonflights plans and what is going down with the leadership of the blue dragonflight.


The second series of manga titled Warcaft : Legends, which is five books in total, is a collection of short chapter-long stories in each book. A few of the stories feature a continuating in later issues, but most are self contained in their single issue.


The third and newest series, which is simply named after the class of which the main character of book is written about, currently contains two titles, Death Knight, which is already out and Mage which is soon to be released. It is yet to be seen if Blizzard will place these characters in-game and intertwine them into the cannon of the game as both titles are rather new.

If you're an avid player of the game and looking for a title to get started on, I would recommend the Sunwell Trilogy, as it relates more heavily to ingame events. If you've never really played WoW and are looking to read one of these manga to see what all the fuss is about, it's probably not worth it, the story isn't really what makes the game great, especially in these titles which focus on pretty minor events instead of major parts of the lore, which is a dissapointing undersight on Blizzard's behalf.
