...Oh, look there.*Another* WoW comic that focuses on Humans/Alliance main chars...C'mon, no love for the Horde side of things? I'm really getting tired of this.

They're publishing a manga about a Tauren who is also undead and hearing the call of the Lich King too, I believe. And hey, the Horde's gotten two of the biggest novels put out yet.Although I would like to see more Tauren in the manga and novels. Maybe a novelization of Cairne's life? Or a big, sprawling epic set in Thunder Bluff, similar to HBO's Rome, about the Grimtotems and their various power plays? Really, the Tauren just haven't gotten enough coverage.

Wow, you'd think the Alliance were the more marketable of the factions or something.

That is true, but as far as I know the Undead Tauren story is just one of several stories published in the Manga. And while I adore the novels, I truly would like to read more Comics/Mangas about the Horde side of things. I may be biased, since my two main characters are Tauren and Orc, but considering the major storylines so far either involved the alliance races, or dragons in elven/human form, (Sunwell, Ashbringer, WoW Monthly), I think we could stand to have a few books out focusing on Orc, Tauren, Troll or even Undead lives during the big events.Hell, I am surprised the Undead had so little exposure, they should be all over with the crowd (not surprised about a blood elf rogue being part of the monthly book though).There is so much potential here that is not used...Hm, while I do agree the Tauren need more exposure, and my main is a Tauren, I don't think they offer much in the way of a 'Rome' like storyline. The Grimtotem never did strike me as being a major powerplayer, although a story focused on the various aspects of the Horde itself could be interesting. I mean, smack dab in the middle of Ogrimmar, one of the main warlocks is working with the Burning Legion, plus, we could have some light shine upon Garrosh and his slow advance to seize power (It seems to me at least that way). Although I also think it's time for a Tauren character to rise from the masses and take a more dominant role in the WoWverse.Td:lrGive us Hordies -something-. Really, *anything*!

Give us a bonus and make the hero a female. Preferably Tauren, but I don't mind if it's a Troll or an Orc; they've got better boobage options for Manga-art.I'm sick of the fact that female heroes/villains of the horde are either UD or BE.I'm eyeing the Garona storyline closely.

I certainly hope Koltira gets some spotlight, too. I modeled my blood elf DK's appearance after him.

And where's my Gnome-centric WoW comic? Gnomes need a comic/manga next. The fall of Gnomeregan and how one gnome survivor defeated the Burning Legion singlehandedly, using just a few portable engineering gizmos.

Personally, I think that the Tauren are portrayed just fine in the WoW comics, and they are not terribly difficult to portray in a positive heroic fashion either. What I would love to see is a Troll protagonist in these types of comics. For example in the Warcraft Legends preview almost every Troll in the comics was either a thug, savage, or villian which was easily killed, fooled or bested by any other character. Having one as a main character would be an intresting change of pace, as they seem to have the least postive, heroic or even sympathetic portrayal of all the other races in Warcraft lore. Then again, maybe Trolls were meant to be that way...
