the comic was SO heavily tilted on the alliance side that it was off-putting to me. even the blood elves are alliance sympathizers. practically every troll and tauren is an easily dispatched thug. as a horde-side player i just found the entire comic hard to get interested in. splitting the factions was going to change that, i thought. guess we'll have to see how the graphic novels go.

Even as an alliance fan, I felt the same way. The fact that a half-naked blood elf is a human’s companion just kind of screams “elven sex symbol needed for relatable protagonist” to me. The fact that WoW presents so many different cultures in equally positive and negative lights is what makes the fiction so compelling to me. In my opinion, the first 12 issues of this comic failed to deliver any of these complexities.

Wow, looking back that last paragraph came off sounding rather redundant lol,
