A couple of months ago, it was announced
that Cryptozoic Entertainment
, publisher of the WoW Trading Card Game
, would be publishing the Warcraft
manga exclusively through its comics reader app. The initial release included Warcraft Legends Vol. 1
, World of Warcraft: Death Knight
, and The Sunwell Trilogy Vol. 1: Dragon Hunt
. It was also announced that other manga titles would be released over time via the app. Apparently, the time for more manga is now, as two new Warcraft
titles have just been released to the comics app.
Warcraft Legends Vol. III
is a collection of short tales, including the continuing story of Trag Highmountain, first seen in the Sunwell trilogy. Also included is the story I Got What Yule Need
, written by New York Times
bestselling author Christie Golden, and The Thrill of the Hunt
, a story involving Hemet Nesingwary, one of the better known NPCs in game. The Legends
series is one of the better ones out there, and at $5.99 for 160 pages worth of manga, it's a good deal.
Also released this month is the second book in the class series, World of Warcraft: Mage
. This stand-alone story tells the tale of Aodhan, an apprentice mage whose dreams of making it big as a spellcaster are suddenly and violently interrupted. This volume delves into the story of Aodhan, but it also sheds a little light on the conflict between the Blue Dragonflight and the Kirin Tor highlighted back in Wrath of the Lich King
. Like the other manga available on the app, Warcraft: Mage
is also a steal at $5.99.
All titles are available for purchase through the Cryptozoic Comics App
, and the app itself is free for download via iTunes. If you missed any of the manga releases, this is an excellent way to pick them up.
