Winter's Veil CCG cards previewed

A little while back, we heard from Upper Deck that there would be a new set of holiday cards coming out for the Feast of Winter Veil ingame holiday, and now reader Dave C has spotted a preview for the cards in the aptly named Previews magazine. If I recall correctly from my comic collecting days, Previews is a magazine for retailers published by a distributor so they can know what's coming in the next few months and how many of each product to order.

At any rate, what's important is that they have a short preview of the upcoming holiday set, and while specifics are still unclear, we're told that each set will have ten exclusive game cards, two Pet mini-cards, three booster packs, and a special "Feast of Winter's Veil" box in it. Unfortunately for the MMO players, none of these cards will be ingame loot cards, but as we said when we first heard about this set, it might be a nice gift for someone who plays the card game itself.

Dave also says the Previews issue has a three page preview of the WoW comic book, and obviously WoW shows up on the cover as well. So expect a lot of WoW-related goodies hitting your local comic book store this holiday season.

Flintlocke is dead. Long live Flintlocke!

Flintlocke: A lil' fire's good fer yeh.Unfamiliar with Gamespy's popular World of Warcraft comic Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth? Have you been living under a rock? Even Blizzard made note of the popular comic, adding an item to the Burning Crusade referencing the unlikely hero of the series, Flintlocke. Fortunately, you can dive in to the comic's archives and enjoy it at any time. (I think my favorite episode is Ogre Killing in 56 Simple Steps.) Unfortunately, Gamespy has recently killed off the comic, citing an inability to find a new artist.

So after two years (on and off), Flintlocke's adventures have ended. Well, at least we'll always have the memories...

Comic contest honorable mention

This comic comes to us courtesy of Iridani (if you cannot get to the official site, you may see the entire comic here), and addresses an issue that has always concerned me. (In fact, it weighs heavily on my mind whenever my Tauren druid attempts to travel by wyvern or bat.) And the art style is unique and suited to the topic at hand.

And if you've got your own ideas for a great World of Warcraft comic, this comic contest will continue until the end of the year, so get out your pens, pencils, markers, mice, or whatever method of creative expression you desire, and get working on your own submission.

Comic Contest Honorable Mention

This honorable mention comes to us courtesy of player Kaigon of Seven Skulls (and, if you can't access the official site from work, you can see a copy of the comic here). The poor Tauren whom you see pictured on the right, is obviously at the end of his rope...

Comic Contest Honorable Mentions


Two more honorable mentions for Blizzard's comic contest have arrived for your viewing pleasure. Both have some really cool artwork (though the styles are completely different) and are both amusing in their own unique ways. First, there's this comic by Thorner of Succession talks about the Blood Elf paladins we'll see in the expansion. Second, there's this comic by Bludlemon of Doom Kittie which discusses some of Blizzard's more... interesting... artistic choices in the game.

Latest comic contest honorable mentions

There seem to be two new honorable mentions up for September's comic contest. The first shows us the tedious job of being a warlock while the second shows off this swanky mount.

Latest Comic Contest Honorable Mention


While I'm sure this sort of undead joke has been done before, I couldn't help but giggle when I saw this week's comic. Poor undead - if they weren't so very devious and, at times, downright evil, you might have to feel sorry for them.

More Comic Contest Winners

I've just noticed that Blizzard's comic contest has announced a new honorable mention as well as August's contest winner. The honorable mention comes curtesy of Sabettan, and explains one of the game's great mysteries. August's winner comes to us from Keydar, and heavily exploits the fact that you cannot help but laugh at a flying Gnome. (Well, okay, I probably would have laughed at a paniced, flying Night Elf, too.)

Got your own comic ideas? Put them in a digital format and submit them! The comic contest will be running until the end of the year, so there's still plenty of time to submit your own work for consideration.

Comic Contest Honorable Mention


All I can really say about this is that the (presumed) healer in the background with his head in his hands perfectly expresses my sentiments with regards to this comic. As a former warlock who now plays a healing class, I really must apologize to everyone who's had the pleasure of healing me in the past...

Latest Comic Contest Honorable Mention


The latest honorable mention (by Trudylor of VR Comic) addresses an aspect of player life that's always confused me - and presents a scene I seem to be involved in every time I create a new character. But I'll let you go take a look for yourself rather than spoil the punchline.

And if you feel you have the talent to compete, the comic contest runs all year, and there's still time to submit your own work for consideration!

Comic Contest Honorable Mention

Another week, and we have another comic contest honorable mention, this one by Banazir. This comic looks into the tragic life of those auctioneer NPCs. (Just think of everything they have to put up with from thoughtless players... or maybe we'd all rather not.)

The comic contest will be continuing for the rest of the year - with one winner chosen every month. So if you've got an clever idea and a bit of skill, there's still plenty of time to submit your own work for consideration!

This Week's Comic Contest Honorable Mentions


I admit, I find this week's honorable mention comic, by Oscaron, a little puzzling. A tiny mailbox? What? However, that was before I found this - a printable template with which to create your own tiny mailbox, for those times the server is offline. Now that's funny.

Again, if you feel you have the talent to compete, Blizzard is running this comic contest all year, and there's still time to submit your own work for consideration!
