Varian in Dustwallow (and the Alliance quests discussing the kidnapping of the king) actually make perfect sense with the comic. In the comic, he has a great deal of lost time -- part of which can easily be him cooling his heels in a dungeon guarded by naga. The Lost Diplomat storyline was about discovering that the Defias (under orders from someone later revealed to be Onyxia) had kidnapped Varian Wrynn.I haven't read anything other than the first collection of Warcraft comics yet -- the stilted writing was just too painful -- but my understanding from wowwiki is that pretty much matches what the comics spelled out anyway.

I just actually completed that questline while working on Loremaster, and they changed it so now Jaina explains what's going on. Her full quote:"Perhaps I should explain... I had arranged for a secret summit between Warchief Thrall and King Wrynn, here in Theramore. The king was to travel here by ship, in secret. But the ship never arrived, and King Wrynn disappeared. Your help enabled us to connect the Defias to the mastermind behind the abduction, Onyxia, who was posing as a member of the royal court. Meanwhile, the king managed to escape his captors, and returned to Stormwind to deal with Onyxia. I will send word that you have discovered the link to the Defias. I was a fool to think them broken with the defeat of Edwin Van Cleef, and King Wrynn will want to make an example of all who remain."
