Steamy Romance Novels: Now with illustrations

One of my favorite parts of any new expansion has just gotten an upgrade, of sorts. It's no secret that I love the Steamy Romance Novels that have been a staple in the game since Burning Crusade. Mists of Pandaria added not one, but two new selections -- although one of them, I'm In Love With A Robot, is too smudged to actually read. Needless to say, part of me has been wondering if the savage lands of Draenor will, in fact, contain one of these literary masterpieces for us to collect. I was both surprised and delighted to see that not only do we get a new book, but all the books in the collection have received visual upgrades.

That's right -- every readable Steamy Romance Novel now has illustrations along with the tantalizingly silly bits of story. That's some pretty loving attention to detail for what are essentially a bunch of vendor-trash books that most people won't favor with more than a glance. But more importantly, a new novel has been added to the collection: A Steamy Romance Novel: Savage Passions. And even more importantly than that, a new method has been added of obtaining all of the Steamy Romance Novels ... just in case you were missing one from your collection.

Sunday Morning Funnies: How delightful

Teh Gladiators
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Everything is so orange. Socializing is the worst. One partnership is broken up, and another is formed. Plus: Richard has a diary (and a purse).

Also, Fox Rain has hit 100 pages! Congratulations, Jenn!

Several of our sporadically updating comics did not post new content this week, so we're missing WoW, eh? and Sara & Kleeyo, as well as Kibble & Bit. And, if you missed the announcement last week, From Draenor With Love is on a brief hiatus to prepare for Chapter 4 (which I'm pretty sure has a dragon).

However, The Brotherhood of Iron, Rug's new comic, which will update sporadically as well, has new content up, which includes Keran from Experience Boost. Plus, Gnomeregan Forever has posted an extra featuring a Kibble & Bit crossover! We also have content from the two new comics that joined us last week, The Warchief's Command Board and Gnomophobia, so there's plenty to read. But, if you're finding the list a bit light, why not check out the Clickware storyline on NPC? It isn't WoW-related, but I mean, Chloe encounters the clickbaitiest of ads, and it's worth the read.

Also this week, Teh Gladiators concludes, although this won't be the last time it's featured here. Next week, there should be Hearthstone-related content, and if you're curious, the text below the final comic gives some more details.

Finally, I'd like to correct a minor error I made last week. Contested Territory (not Gnomeregan Forever) switched up its line style subtly, which is getting some great feedback from readers.

Sunday Morning Funnies: I plasmified this one

From Draenor With Love
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A hydra, a pot of coffee, being snide, a monster under the bed. Plus: Your candles suck!

On the top of the list this week, we have two new WoW-related comics, Gnomophobia and The Warchief's Command Board. I've linked the archive or index for each, and next week, will begin linking the newest. Thanks for the tips, Jim and SintraEdrien!

Speaking of new projects, if you missed us last week, you might have missed the announcement that Rug finally started her own comic! It's called The Brotherhood of Iron, and includes all of the guest comics from Gnomeregan Forever, plus a new one.

And speaking of Rug, she is also featured in this week's Gnomeregan Forever, which tells the story of why Trig's doctors ordered some bed rest. Despite the serious topic, she has a line that cracked me up. Plus, Trigonometry Comics is back with a new comic, so don't miss it.

Other comics that weren't on the list last week that updated this week include Experience Boost as well as Sara & Kleeyo. Father's Shield continues with two new chapter installments, and Guilded Age starts up Chapter 34. Plus, Gnomeregan Forever showcases a new line style, which got some pretty positive reader feedback. It's a subtle change, though, so you might find yourself flipping back and forth a bit to check it out. Finally, From Draenor With Love wraps up Chapter 3 this week, and celebrates one year since starting the current story. There will be a brief hiatus before Chapter 4 launches, however, which will be tough, considering the cliffhanger/teaser.

Sunday Morning Funnies: I am a swan

Gratz
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Bigger lizards, going blonde, the placebo effect, and a duel (with sound effects). Plus: Proof that size does matter.

In comic news this week, Arugadh (Rug) finally started her own comic! It's called The Brotherhood of Iron and it starts with every one of her guest comics that appeared on Gnomeregan Forever, as well as a new comic.

Also on the list this week, WoW, eh? posted two new comics. Plus, Guilded Age celebrated its fifth anniversary, and NPC continued its storyline, Hearthstone Guru.

Last week, Away From Reality creator Erik started up Father's Shield. If you didn't get a chance to check it out, visit the intro and round-up page.

However, there are also a few favorites missing this week. Experience Boost will be up late because Russell stressed his drawing arm a bit during travel home from Dragon Con. Contested Territory and Sara & Kleeyo, as well as Kibble & Bit, did not update.

Finally, I'm sorry to report that Trig received doctor's orders to take it easy for a bit, so Gnomeregan Forever and Trigonometry Comics will be taking a week off. Best wishes, Trig!

Here are the comics, starting with Rug's newest:

Sunday Morning Funnies: So cardboardy

Guilded Age
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A limerick, a task to impart wisdom, a leap of faith, missed experiences, an ending. Plus: Owltupus!

In comic news this week, Erik of Away From Reality will be working on a new project! It is called Father's Shield, and will update every Wednesday. There's more information linked in the list, as well as the first comic, but it will be more serious than Away From Reality and not connected to its characters.

Gratz also recently started a new project, called Solace. In addition, Lackinganame surpassed 500 posted comic pages this week (across all books of Gratz and including the new Solace pages). Congratulations, and thanks for all the hard work bringing us entertainment each week!

Russell Brooks of Experience Boost will be attending a convention this week (Dragon Con), and so there may be fewer updates to post next week.

A few of our sporadically updating comics did not update this week, including WoW, eh? and Kibble & Bit, and Teh Gladiators should appear next week. However, Sara & Kleeyo has new content up, and NPC has a new Hearthstone storyline. Contested Territory updated with two pages, which is a nice bonus.

Ready for the comics? There might not be any corgis (like last week), but we do have a half gator!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Grow, little melons

Teh Gladiators
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: New discoveries are made. School is in. Preparations are underway for moving to a new land. Plus: Flawless reasoning!

I hope you've all got your coffee brewed, your tea steeped, or your otherwise comforting drinks prepared, because we've got a lot of extras this week!

Several comics that update sporadically have posted. Massive Pwnage has a new WoW-related comic (that includes corgis!), and both Sara & Kleeyo and WoW, eh? updated, so be sure not to miss them!

Plus, Kibble & Bit updated twice, which is a real treat. One is the latest installment of "Pet Meets Pet", and the other is a special, which will be especially useful for anyone looking for a new guild (and perhaps server).

Gratz started its latest book last week, Solace, with some opening material. This week, the story kicks off in earnest with six whole pages!

There's also a lot happening at Gnomeregan Forever, including a new Extra, and two guest comics by Rug. One of these is heavy, and discusses suicide, depression, suicide prevention and Blizzard's decision (specifically, the timing of that decision) to memorialize Robin Williams. The other features the gang trolling an ERP'er, so you know -- something for everyone!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Brood more

Experience Boost
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: The importance of being adequately armed. A messy mix-up. A new rocket design sparks a duel. Plus: A slizard!

Last week, Contested Territory celebrated its second-year anniversary! Congratulations, and thanks for everything, Maiu!

Also last week, Gratz: Adventure wrapped up, leaving us wondering what was next. This week, the new book has been revealed! It's called Solace, and the three pages up so far are openers. I can't wait to see how this takes shape!

In other news? Richard is helpless and under attack. The characters of Away From Reality are prepping for Draenor. Someone's gullibility is showing. Plus, we learn about ogre culture and some of Four's background.

Onward to the list:

Sunday Morning Funnies: Moonlight

WoW, eh?
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: An assistant with pointy little teeth. A temper tantrum. A bit of a hike. Plus: Reconciliation!

If you've been following Gratz, you won't want to miss this week, as Gratz Adventurer comes to a conclusion. Missed it last week? You should at least check out last week's final update before proceeding! Does this mean Gratz is over? Don't worry! There's something mysterious to come next week.

You should also check out the text at the bottom of the conclusion to Gratz Adventurer. Gratz itself was hatched in 2008, and is estimated to have taken almost 1,470 hours. Gratz, Lackinganame, and thanks for all your hard work!

Looking for more highlights and teasers from this week's list? Rug delivers a wallop! Kibble & Bit is back with more pet-to-pet interaction! On NPC, Family D&D Night is on, so you should check out the first comic linked and keep hitting next if you're interested in following the storyline right through. Plus, a makeover!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Redundant? No way

Contested Territory
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Congratulations are in order (and boy, does time fly!). The wheelbarrow of death. Mountain climbing. Plus: Double cat!

On the list this week, Teh Gladiators has returned with new comics. In fact, there are six new ones to check out!

There are also a couple of comics on the list today that don't update with WoW-related content every week. NPC has three comics, which is a treat, and Sara & Kleeyo has something new as well.

On Away From Reality this week, there's some discussion about the decision to restrict player flight in Warlords. And on Trigonometry Comics, this week's update is apparently the most difficult page Trig has ever created.

If you'd like a few hints at the plots, well, just glance up. Contested Territory is reminiscing. I missed their childhood selves! Plus, big things are happening on Gratz. (Or a little thing? Hmm.)

That's all you get! On to the list:

The battle for Warsong Gulch continues in Wowcraft

CarBot's latest Wowcraft episode continues to focus on our Horde and Alliance friends as they battle for the flags of Warsong Gulch. This episode pokes fun at lots of the typical mechanics and behavior you'll see in a battleground--the spring boots, the rez timer, and of course those infuriating, blinking mages. The game's still afoot, however, and despite the ominious (for the Alliance, anyway) ending to this short, nobody's yet won. We'll see how things continue in part four!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Like an elf person

Experience Boost
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Off to a rocky start, a mostly adjunctive modifier, a dip in the lake and a hedgehog of healing. Plus: Rug is coming.

In comic news, we have a very full list this week, with lots of bonus material and several of our sporadically updating comics contributing new work. Best in Slot kicks off Chapter 2 with its first page, as well as numerous extras. Gnomeregan Forever has also posted an extra.

Both WoW, eh? and Kibble & Bit have new content on the list this week, and Gratz posted four new comics. My Name is Nyhm, which updates Tuesdays (but only sometimes with WoW-related content) has two new comics on the list, one of which is Hearthstone-related.

In other news, Chloe and Bink have to make a tough decision. I mean, naps are really important, especially for cats.

Finally, the creator of Contested Territory (Maiu) asks the readers a question this week. Although many readers have already given feedback and left some insightful, supportive comments, there's plenty of room for more voices.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Second opinion

From Draenor With Love
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Deep, soul-searching questions. A unanimous vote-down. A makeover with an impact. In strolls a troll. Plus: Puppy love.

This week, Away From Reality celebrated its 300th comic. Congratulations AFR! And thank you, for entertaining us and creating for us all these years (and continuing to do so).

Also on the list this week is the Chapter 2 cover art for Best in Slot. Plus, both Sara & Kleeyo (which updates sporadically) and Kibble & Bit have a new comic up. NPC has posted one WoW-related comic this week, and Game of Thrones fans should read the next one in the series "Quizzed" as well.

However, Fox Rain did not update this week, presumably because its creator is traveling.

Finally, if you missed last week's comments section, then you are missing out on Trig's recipe for Strawberry-Basil Lemonade.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Here for the bruiseweed

Contested Territory
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Lil' Leftovers, a really deep pit, a new best friend, an offer to tutor and a game. Plus, a battle to the death!

This week's list is full of treats and extras. To start with, both From Draenor With Love and Contested Territory, which have been on hiatus, are back with new content!

We also have updates from some of the comics that don't post every week. WoW, eh? has another combat pet-themed comic up, plus both Sara & Kleeyo and Kibble & Bit have updated.

Rug has delivered another guest comic via Gnomeregan Forever, commenting on the IeSF's decision to segregate female gamers during the 2014 Hearthstone tournament.

Gratz has updated its Extras section again, with Warlords-themed artwork.

Finally, Chapter 1 of Best in Slot wraps up this week. Next week, we have been promised some cover art and maybe some other little goodies. After that, it will be straight on to Chapter 2 with no hiatus.

Kotaku launches "An idiot in Azeroth"

Northshire quest giver
Yesterday a new series of articles began on Kotaku: "An idiot in Azeroth," written by Mark Serrels as he chronicles is very first time playing through World of Warcraft. Poor Mark may be in over his head--he is only vaguely aware of what WoW is or how it works. It took him 15 minutes to figure out how to turn the tutorials on so he would know how to play. He got eaten by a wolf and squished by a murloc. Sound familiar?

The most delightful part of reading about Mark's first exploits into Azeroth is the knowing grin it brings to my face. Ah, yes -- those days! I remember that. I remember wandering aimlessly through the starting zone, trying to figure out where to find that quest item I needed, getting turned around in the woods, and getting eaten by wolves. Each of us only gets to discover Azeroth once, and reading about Mark's first forays into that world are the closest any of us will ever be to reliving the experience. I can't wait to see where it takes him. if we're lucky, perhaps it will make him one of us.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Not my chipmunk

Best in Slot
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Making art (in war), peon clones, practicing faces, no credit sharing. Plus: Create a paradox, break some magic.

In comic news this week, you will notice that Fox Rain is back! Plus, WoW, eh? has updated again, with a new nefarious plot brewing.

To celebrate July 4th, Gratz has posted a special, and taken a break from storytelling for the week. Speaking of celebrations, Kelly Aarons (of WoW, eh?) celebrated a birthday last week. Happy Birthday, Kelly! Plus, apparently Cadi will be in the game at some point! How awesome is that? Finally, I have to say congratulations to Rug for finishing and publishing a novel (see last week's comments section for more details).

There are also still a few comics on hiatus. As a reminder, Contested Territory and From Draenor With Love (which missed our deadline) should be listed next week, while Chat Channeling is on hiatus indefinitely, and updates from Sara & Kleeyo and Kibble & Bit will be sporadic.
