See this is a good article even with the very good rant in it.. I can see her story getting a little shifty, or shiftier and that sucks.. they need to nail down SOMETHING on her eventually. I don't know if i like the idea of an undead guy who predates any undead in azeroth. makes the threat of the scourge and the plight of the forsaken almost a moot point when any mage/warlock/whatever good enough can will himself undead.. plus theres too many holes here: its been said, to death, that magic was taught to the humans by the high elves as a sort of payment for their services in helping them against the trolls, there's no possible way this guy can be human then if he's millenias old then. and how has he known her for a long time and not be a part of her history as we know it? they've said that she only really kicked it with Khadger, Llane and Lothar on azeroth and the only way she could have known a human otherwise before then is if one SOMEHOW got to draenor.. no one did that before the portal was open. they're reconting too much here.. and why does there need to be another prophesy of a savior? we've got Thrall, that should be enough for a LONG while still.. the worst it can save us from till further notice is sargaras since his spirit or whatever is still floating around somewhere.. it really is too bad they do use this as cannon.. varian is badass and a welcome addition to the game but EVERY thing in the comic wont work.. like take the roots on Ony's lair they put in this preview.. are we expecting THAT as cannon? its stupid. the art is bad, I've seen MANY webcomics with better art, but wildstorm has never ever been known for good art.. or good writing, the writing is just terrible.. or much of any thing good.. blizzard would have been better off with a company like darkhorse, the traditionally do better with licensed work, or image who has better artist.. my guess is that Marvel or DC wouldn't pic it up or it would be too expensive of a deal..

Actually, Wildstorm *is* DC. The imprint handles the licensed stuff DC gets such as Warcraft, Supernatural, etc.But in general licensed stuff is always pretty terrible. And while I may be a sucker who actually bought a couple of issues of the new Titans series, I'm not THAT much of a sucker.On a related note, I'm curious why WoW-related sites are seemingly clueless about comics. I mean, I can't seriously be the enough comic geek who also plays WoW??? :)Solicitations are released three months before the issue arrives in stores, so Garona's appearance is hardly a surprise.The solicitation for #15 (the issue that came out today) mentions Garona. The solicitation for #16 also mentions Garona (apparently, she's taken captive by the Forsaken next month), as does the one for #17....Guys, you just have to check the upcoming solicts at sites like Comic Book Resources about this time of the month to see descriptions and (usually) the cover art for what's coming out in three months. Just look under the DC Comics solicitations in the Wildstorm section.
