Personally, I'm glad about this. I for one never liked the mangas. Between Kalec and Anveena being "Legend of Zelda" with a dragon instead of an elf (Anveena was the Sunwell, really? Blah) and the continuously poor Knaak/Jaw-Hwan mix of poor art and dumb storytelling, I had my fill after the first trilogy.The art just always seemed to busy and too eager to be realistic. Part of WoW's charm is its unique aesthetic and colorful palette, both of which got lost in the mangas. The plot in the actual comic series may have been about as dumb as dirt, but the art and coloring were fantastic.

Mind you, I'm an extreme lore junkie. I have every book, ever manga, ever TTRPG book (whose editors are apparently blind, those books have more grammar and text errors than a second grade book report). Less lore output is bad, sure, but even then, the less fingers Knaak has in WoW lore the better.

The Death Knight manga was excellent, and really worth the purchase, especially for Thassarian and Koltira fans (much less Thassarian/Koltira fans kekek). The rest of them sucked ass. Sunwell Tri-lol-gy was typical shitty retconning Mary Sue Knaak nonsense, not to mention totally ripped off from Buffy. Legends was very hit or miss depending on the volume.Still, I will give them one thing, in that the art was consistently decent. The Sunwell Trilogy, despite the abysmal story, had absolutely gorgeous art work and that was the one reason I bought it. That still puts the manga above the comics, which have shitty writing AND laughably bad '90s-esque artwork.
