Sunday Morning Funnies: New pets

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

In comic news this week, NPC Comic is going to be updating three times a week! You can expect new comics Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Gratz put up its 100th digitally penned page. Congratulations, Lackinganame! There are also a few statistics included of just how much work they took (a lot).

From Draenor With Love is going to be undergoing some changes, starting this week. After two years, it is going to be more like a graphic novel (but will still be about Vid and Rades), with an ongoing story that spans from week to week. Page one of chapter one is on the list this week, so check it out!

Enter to win World of Warcraft: Bloodsworn

Enter to win World of Warcraft Bloodsworn
Patch days full of new content to play are always good, but why don't we make this patch day just a little bit better? We've got not one, but two copies of World of Warcraft: Bloodsworn to give away, and today seems like the best day to do it! This brand-new graphic novel from DC Comics follows the adventures of a motley group of individuals brought together under the banner of the Horde. Written by Doug Wagner and featuring artwork by Jheremy Raapack, the book clocks in at a solid 152 pages jammed full of action.

Thanks to Blizzard Entertainment, we've got a couple of these graphic novels to give away. Take a look at our spoiler-free review if you'd like more information on the graphic novel -- while the events in the story take place shortly after Cataclysm, the book is very much worth the read and an even better addition to your bookshelf.

Interested? To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Tuesday, September 17, 2013. You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You can only enter once. Two winners will be chosen at random and we will contact you via whatever method you've used to comment. Official rules here.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Shadows

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

In comic news this week, Sara & Kleeyo has moved to a bi-weekly schedule, although we might see the odd extra update now and then! This week, there's a guest comic up by Lackinganame (of Gratz).

Lackinganame asked a question in last week's comment section. How does the size of our current comic list compare to the size of the list in the past? Well, it fluctuates. But I think it's pretty comparable! We have a lot of comics right now that are pretty consistent with their updates, which really helps keep the list sizable.

But we're always willing to add to it! Start your own and nominate it, or submit the link for a comic you know of.

Finally, Dark Legacy Comics this week features some interesting filler, because the creator was out of town. Check it out if you'd like to see something a little different than usual.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Doubt it

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

From Draenor With Love released part three of their behind the scenes feature! It focuses on production, namely, dialogue and readying for publication.

Some of the comics missing last week, such as Sara & Kleeyo and The Gnomish Investigation Agency, are back with new updates! Gratz has also done another heavy week, with four new comics released.

Don't forget that we're always on the lookout for new comics to add to the list! We feature comics about WoW, and inspired by it. We're also always willing to welcome back any comics that have been on hiatus for awhile, but have started updating again.

We've added a few new ones over the last several weeks, but there's always room for more. Leave a tip in the comment section if you would like to submit a comic for consideration!

Bloodsworn graphic novel now available

Bloodsworn
Lore fans will likely be happy to hear that Bloodsworn, the companion graphic novel to Dark Riders, is now available. While Dark Riders, released earlier this year, told the story of the eponymous Dark Riders we met through quests in Darkshire, Bloodsworn is the tale of a small band of disparate Horde warriors determined to prove their worth to their new warchief: Garrosh Hellscream.

Yes, the graphic novel requires going back in time just a tad; it's set shortly after the start of Cataclysm, and as our own Anne Stickney pointed out in her review it invites a bit of wistful nostalgia as a result. Depending on your perspective you may or may not enjoy that aspect of it. Nonetheless, if you're a fan of Blizzard's ancillary products, it's certainly worth checking out. You can grab it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the Blizzard Store.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Tasty emotions

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

In comic news this week, Gratz fans will note that there are extra updates to be had! And From Draenor With Love released part two of its behind the scenes feature, focusing on the artwork.

The Gnomish Investigation Agency creator, Scott, is out sick, but plans to be up and running again in time to make next week's list! We hope you're feeling better, Scott!

What's Shakin' is also still out, presumably because Coffin is still suffering from allergies. Hopefully you are doing better, Coffin, and are just really busy!

Missed the odd Sunday? Check out the list! We've had a couple of recent additions to the list lately, as well as a few comics returning from hiatus.

Review of World of Warcraft: Bloodsworn

Review of World of Warcraft Bloodsworn
Much like its counterpart Dark Riders, World of Warcraft: Bloodsworn is long, long overdue. Luckily, those that have been waiting for the new graphic novel from writer Doug Wagner don't have long to wait -- Bloodsworn will be released next Tuesday, August 27. While Dark Riders tackled some of the Alliance characters introduced in the 2009 special issue of the Warcraft comic series, Bloodsworn tackles the Horde characters introduced in the final edition.

Although Dark Riders dove headfirst into familiar waters for those that follow Warcraft lore, Bloodsworn takes a different road entirely, giving us a behind the scenes glimpse of Garrosh's Horde. Taking place shortly after Cataclysm, Bloodsworn follows the tale of several different Horde characters, brought together and united to investigate and uncover the motives and actions of a seemingly new breed of centaur that are intent on wiping the Horde from the face of Azeroth.

And, yes, Trigonometry Comics is back! Welcome back Trig, and I'm sorry to hear that things are not really better. But we missed you and are excited about your return nonetheless. (Incidentally, there are also two updates... we are spoiled this week!)

From Draenor With Love posted a special comic that delves into some of the behind-the-scenes info about the making of the comic. If you're a fan, or are interested in comic-making and the artistic process, you won't want to miss it.

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

In comic news this week, Gratz artist Jason (Lackinganame) posted a YouTube video that shows how he makes the comic. Plus, there are several updates on the list this week!

Doctor Who fans won't want to miss From Draenor With Love this week!

Trigonometry is still working on the recuperating thing. But, he left a tip to his other comic, Gnomeregan Forever, which is a sporadically updating place for Trig to get creative and post different things. Check it out on this week's list.

Finally, Lo'meath & Huilii recently posted a quick update to let everyone know that the comic is not gone forever. Moeru has been extremely stressed and busy and it sounds like there are a lot of life changes happening; congrats on the new job, Moeru! Looking forward to the comic's return.

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

We have a new addition to this week's list! Check out Kibble & Bit! (Thanks for the tip, Puntable1 and KunamiMata!) Read through from the beginning and I'll start posting the latest updates next week.

In other news, Away From Reality has finally hit 250 comics, and is bringing the epic special plot-based storyline to a close. Congratulations on 250 comics, AFR!

Coffin is still down with a bad bout of allergies, so What's Shakin' is still on hold. Trig is still resting (get better!) but is aiming to update next week anyway, presumably because he loves us and/or is bad at resting.

Contested Territory is back from hiatus with Chapter Four! There's also a Facebook page and the artist is looking for tips for getting a new website set up for the comic. If you're good with that sort of thing, send Maiu a message.

Finally, some changes are happening over at GU Comics. The comic is going to shift in focus and format, and a spin-off comic shall be born.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Forwarding address

Sunday Morning Funnies Forwarding address    SUN
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comic news, Away From Reality is almost at the culmination of its special series. Check out #248 and #249 for a ton of action and a huge cliffhanger!

The Guilded Age Kickstarter campaign successfully raised over $20,000! That's over twice the original goal. This means that Volume 3 will be produced in print, in addition to Volume 2!

Contested Territory will be coming out of its hiatus with a new chapter next week! In the meantime, there are some more sketches up that show how the comic is produced.

Gratz only has one update this week due to the artist being on vacation. What's Shakin' is still down due to Coffin's really bad allergies (I can relate). Trig is still resting and, hopefully, recuperating!

Check out this week's list of comics:

Guilded Age's Kickstarter campaign still has a few days left! They're hitting some of their stretch goals, and they even slashed prices on some of the tiers. If you were interested in donating, now's the time.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Experience Boost

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

This week, we're shining the spotlight on a comic that is pretty new to our weekly list. Check out Experience Boost:

Experience Boost is written and drawn by Russell Brooks. Russell likes web comics and MMOs, and says that one day he had a "chocolate in my peanut butter" moment. The result is Experience Boost. The art is done in Photoshop, and the lettering in Illustrator.

The comic follows the adventures of Keran, a new player in Realm of Quests (which is WoW-inspired), and her friend Vedrana, a returning veteran. They're going from 1 to level cap, and beyond. Other characters include the raging rogue xMurderBanex, the laid back ranger Theron, and Castor, the troll.

Experience Boost updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Keep them

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

We're taking a break this week from our recent spotlight series, and focusing on good ol' fashioned comic news. So here's what's new:

Guilded Age's Kickstarter fund is going swimmingly! Volume 2 (in hard copy) of the comic has been funded, as well as at least one animation. Check out their "achievement" card to see a celebratory comic that also shows the stretch goals, or head over to Kickstarter to check out the rewards on offer and possibly contribute.

Also in Kickstarter news, Blind Ferret and Paladin Studios (an indie game developer) are working to fund an LFG-themed four-player co-op video game. There are tons of cool stretch goals and prizes. They have quite a way to go yet, but you can still donate until July 19!

And fans of DLC might notice the special LFG-related comic on the list this week... but I won't spoil the surprise. Check it out yourself!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Gnomish Investigation Agency

Sunday Morning Funnies Gnomish Investigation Agency SUN
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

Every week, SMF has been featuring a regularly updating web comic about, or inspired by, World of Warcraft. This week, meet The Gnomish Investigation Agency:

The Gnomish Investigation Agency is written and created by Scott, who is, among other things, an anthropology student. Scott started the comic as a fun project for himself and his guild, and it evolved from there. He uses iPhoto, Comic Life 2 and Image Tricks to create the comic, but may branch out to other programs in the future. Everything is shot in-game.

The comic itself is about a gnomish private detective by the name of Mr. Wizworth Coggling, who, after witnessing various tragedies befall his people, decides to form an agency to help gnomes who have fallen on tough times. The motto: "We make your big problems seem small!"

Other characters include Dr. Fizton Lightspanner and a mysterious, top-hatted gnome.

The Gnomish Investigation Agency updates once or twice weekly.
