I work in a library and we get all these Warcraft Mangas and novels. You're right, these comic books are horribly written; like an afterschool children's cartoon of Warcraft. The novels are much better and contain more of the lore. I'm reading The War of the Ancients trilogy right now, and it's packed with all the chracters and history that you see in WoW. Cenarius, Azshara, Illidan and Malfurion and the Well of Eternity. They are, however, very poorly written. The writing is heavy-handed and dull and they don't capture Blizzard's humor and style at all. But like you say, I'm a Warcraft junkie so I read it anyway. The best Warcraft novel I've read so far is "The Last Gaurdian" about Khadgar and Medivh. Great book and a pleasure to read. And one of the new instances is set in Medivh's tower, where most of the book takes place. The best place to go for an overview of the characters and history of Azeroth is WOWWIKI.COM. It's like the encyclopedia of Warcraft. It really makes the game a deeper and richer experience when you know the charcacters and lore.
