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.

Bottom's Up for the continued tale of the Mists cinematic

Blizzard decided to post the above video, titled Bottom's Up, to their official Youtube account yesterday, stating that they found some extra footage shot just moments after the Mists of Pandaria cinematic had come to an end. The video features the return of the human and orc featured duking it out in the original cinematic -- only slightly less keen on tearing out each other's throats.

Personally, I could watch these two all day. I kind of want to see a series of cinematic shorts about their adventures, now. My only minor complaint is that they didn't use the kazoo music from Pandaria's inns for the backing track. I mean, I understand why, it would have been far too distracting, but man I love that music, and I'm going to miss it when we leave Pandaria's shores for good.

Wowcraft Episode 7 visits Warsong Gulch

I know Wowcraft is supposed to be a World of Warcraft parody, but this episode's trip to Warsong Gulch seems pretty true to my in-game experiences... except, of course, Wowcraft is way more adorable. In every battleground, though, you always seem to run into at least one player trying to organize for everyone else, one player jumping mindlessly around the entrance, one player autorunning against the starting gate, and one player (or more) standing still as a statue. But somehow CarBot makes these player stereotypes seem pretty charming.

CarBot's animated adventures always amuse with its spot-on representation of in-game life. If you've missed any, you can catch the rest of their work -- including StarCraft and Diablo videos -- on their YouTube channel.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Weeds and black roses

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

This week, in comics: A teddy bear collection, a face nerf (or two), a lesson learned and an insufficient explanation. Plus: Just a few skeletons in the closet.

This week, we have not one, but two reader favorites that don't often update. Be sure to check out Kibble & Bit and WoW, eh? (pictured above). Plus, make sure to read the text beneath WoW, eh? (which is a belated Father's Day post) for some extra Cadi history.

However, you will also notice a number of excellent comics missing this week. As a reminder, From Draenor With Love is taking a one-week break, and will be back for next week. Contested Territory will be back two weeks from now (it is scheduled to resume July 8). Sara & Kleeyo and Chat Channeling are on hiatus, but there is no word yet as to when they will be back. Fox Rain is also missing this week.

But despite the missing comics, there's plenty on the list this week to get excited about. Theron (Experience Boost) is called on his choices. The murder mystery storyline wraps up on Gratz. Dark Legacy Comics mocks players who complain about every single change. Plus, both Gnomeregan Forever and Trigonometry Comics feature new content.

Finally, be sure to check out the Extras section for Gratz. There's a Horde Chopper-themed drawing up!

Sunday Morning Funnies: A good cut

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

This week, in comics: Rib eye, a stolen cup, good friends and a slow triumph. Plus: Four.

This week, on From Draenor With Love, we get to meet a new character. However, it's worth noting that the comic is taking a one-week hiatus (and so there will be no From Draenor With Love next week) because Vid is going on holiday.

On Gratz, we learn more about the new character (the murderer) we met last week. We learn not only a bit about her motivations, but also about some of the details of her crime.

If you missed us last week, then you might not have heard that there are two comics on hiatus. Contested Territory will resume on July 8. Sara & Kleeyo is also on hiatus, with no set return date, although there may be sporadic updates; in fact, we got one this week!

There's also a new hiatus to announce. Chat Channeling will be taking a break of indeterminate length, although we do get a strip this week.

In happier news, Experience Boost celebrated its one-year anniversary last week! Happy first birthday!

Sunday Morning Funnies: I will never sleep again

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

This week, in comics: A revelation. Your first million. A dwarf with a point. A great loss. Plus: It's raining cats!

In comic news this week, we have an appearance by Massive Pwnage (which usually isn't WoW-related, but is featured when it is). We also get to meet a murderer, albeit briefly. I suppose we will have to wait until next week for the full reveal on Gratz! Plus, "A Question of Pragmatism" continues on Gnomeregan Forever.

Last week, Rug announced that despite her recent awesome guest comics (on Gnomeregan Forever), she currently has no plans to start her own comic. However, she will continue to grace us with her guest pieces, and, lucky us, there's another one this week!

In sadder news, I have two hiatuses to announce. Due to outside forces, Sara & Kleeyo is on hiatus indefinitely, although not permanently by any means. Contested Territory is also going on hiatus, and is scheduled to resume on July 8.

Finally, it's BlizzCon badge time! Vidyala (of From Draenor With Love) sells beautiful, unique, hand-painted BlizzCon badges (which are fully removable and separable from the "badge" parts, to give you frameable artwork, and also come with a high-quality digital image). The best part? Even if you don't want to (or cannot) purchase a badge, there's a gallery up of 2013 badges for perusal and we'll definitely get to see at least some of what is drawn for 2014. Really, go ogle them, because they rock.

And of course: Have a happy day, fathers!

Sunday Morning Funnies: I'm a tree

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

This week, in comics: Someone has trust issues. A badass comes through. There's a little shapeshifting going on. Plus: A blue doggy!

In comic news this week, we have a new addition to the list, thanks to a tip from TimothyNemecek. It's fairly new and it's called My Name Is Nyhm. Although it is not always WoW-related, it is often applicable to MMO players in general. Plus, I don't know if you remember Nyhm, but if you do, and were a fan, you should definitely check it out. This week, I've put it at the top of the list, and linked all relevant comics. However, you might prefer to simply start at the beginning.

If you missed us last week, you will want to make sure to check out Rug's guest comic on Gnomeregan Forever, in which she goes shopping. And you'll be happy to hear that this week, Rug has done up another guest edition! I'm definitely thinking that Trig is on to something: Rug needs her own comic.

Also on the list this week is the continuation of World of Hearthcraft (on NPC) and more murder mystery from Gratz. Plus, several of the comics that were missing last week have updated, although Chat Channeling is absent.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Trews in a twist

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

This week, in comics: A shopping trip. A confession. Spontaneous development of a sense of humor. Plus: Meowr.

Other things happening this week include the continuation of the "World of Hearthcraft" storyline on NPC, featuring Mary's in-game rogue, who has some tricks up her sleeve. The plot of the murder mystery on Gratz thickens when a new clue is discovered. Plus, both Contested Territory and Sara & Kleeyo posted new content.

We are also treated to a guest post by Rug (Arugadh) on Gnomeregan Forever, in which she goes shopping for something not "soooooo BC". If it has gotten you in the mood for some transmog ogling, you might also be interested in the transmog posts over at Chat Channeling (which are not comics), or in revisiting the most excellent Transmog Crisis Make-up! from WoW, eh?.

However, we are missing a few of our usual contributors this week, such as Dark Legacy Comics and Kibble & Bit, as well as Teh Gladiators. If you're looking for a little extra reading and viewing material, though, we have you covered; Gratz updated its Extras page, and Best in Slot also posted a new extra, How to Magic.

WRUP: Bizzaro World Edition


We've entered (or is it left?) a land that isn't anything like our own. Up is down, down is left, and inside is at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. What is this crazy place we've gone to? And why isn't Mike Gray writing WRUP this weekend? It's because we're in Bizzaro World.

It's sorta like the comic book version, but a lot less action-y.

Today's WRUP is all about what you're not playing. Read along to find out what we've all given the shun to, and tell us what you're not doing too! Maybe we'll run into some odd creatures in Bizzaro World, like a recently-released WoW in space game.

/cough.

Adam Holisky (@AdamHolisky) I'm not playing WoW. There, I said it. Happy? What am I playing instead? The first new game I'm playing is called "go outside and walk around a state park with the wife." I get great rewards for doing this, and I'm particularly interested in leveling up (I hear I get low-fat Ice Cream if I ding). The second new game I'm playing is called "spend Sunday coding." I get a lot of gold for that game.

And then I'm playing some Guild Wars 2... WoW will come on Monday.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Tame a pipe organ

Dark Legacy Comics
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Business is booming. Hearthstones save lives. Hell, illustrated. Ghosts are learning the highland fling. Plus: Bones. And something really bad happens to a cookie!

(And I think it's too late to save the cookie.)

If you missed us last week, you might also have missed out on the start of NPC's latest WoW-related storyline (which is also Hearthstone-related), World of Hearthcraft. If so, why not Pull Up a Chair?

In other storyline-related news, Away From Reality has been doing a series of Karazhan-themed comics, which anyone feeling nostalgic should check out. It starts with Endgame.

There are a few other things of note happening on the list, including:
  • The first page of From Draenor With Love Chapter 3 went up this week. (The cover art was posted last week.)
  • Guilded Age concludes "Mental Health Day", a short story, and starts up Chapter 31.
  • Space Rocks (Dark Legacy Comics) comes to a weighty conclusion.
Plus, if you hadn't noticed, Kibble & Bit is back!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Glittermane

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

This week, in comics: An elfie. There are dungeons to plunder. A resurrection is performed. A plan to not get killed in space is hatched and executed. Plus: The power of magical friendship!

There are a few goodies of note on the list this week. To start, the Chapter 3 cover for From Draenor With Love is up. No more hiatus! The chapter is titled "Violence". Plus, NPC has started up a new WoW-related (and Hearthstone-related) storyline, which features Mary's rogue in game.

You might also notice that Guilded Age has started posting a series of comics as part of a short story called "Mental Health Day" (funded by the Friggstarter campaign funds). There will also be a second short story on the horizon. Plus, next week, Chapter 31 starts up.

Experience Boost is also closing up its current storyline, and moving on to something new. Sara & Kleeyo is on the list this week (it is typically up alternating weeks, you might recall), and our relative newcomer, Best in Slot, has posted another extra.

Finally, well, someone might just be making a comeback. And if our resident undead gnome cheerleader is done busting out the backflip sprocket-targeting kicks (which I fully support), then I see cartwheels in our future.

Sunday Morning Funnies: A fish in my dreams

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

This week, in comics: A secret identity is revealed. A good friend is rewarded with betrayal. Well-prepared explorers head into space. Plus: If you've been sleeping in, I bet your favorite authority figure totally knows about it.

If you missed the column last week, you might be surprised to find a new addition to our fold, Best in Slot. As there were 14 available comics last week, I've included the newest, #15, today. But there's also a new "extra" feature (and it's really cute).

Speaking of extras, From Draenor With Love has posted a thoroughly amusing, genuine script for a comic they never did create. I've included it in this week's list; it gives great insight into some of the creative processes that go into that comic. Plus, apparently, chapter 3 will be posted next week!

If you haven't been reading Experience Boost (for some reason?), but have noticed the admirers in the comments section and wondered where to start (besides the beginning), Roster Opening is a great place to join that will bring you through the current storyline.

Finally, Gratz posted its questions and answers feature, available below, which addresses Lackinganame's favorite parts of the comic ever created, as well as some future potential plot developments.
