“World of Warcraft: Curse of the Worgen” comic miniseries coming in November

A. Quinton — Aug. 19th 2010

As if you werewolf-loving World of Warcraft players weren’t already in a complete lather over the Worgen, here comes “Curse of the Worgen“, a 5-issue comic miniseries being released by DC’s WildStorm imprint. From WildStorm’s site:


The best-selling WORLD OF WARCRAFT comic series returns in time for a worldwide CATACLYSM! A series of grisly, animalistic murders have rocked the walled town of Gilneas. A famous detective sets out to discover the perpetrators and finds far more than he bargained for. To find the truth, he must delve through years of twisted history – both the history of his family and Gilneas itself. This pivotal 5-issue miniseries explores the in-depth lore of the Worgen!

Shuffle impatiently in front of your favourite comic shop on the morning of November 17th and when they let you in, you can buy the first issue. That’s what I’ll be doing.

I showed my wife Tandye the cover image for issue #1 last night, and within 10 minutes (and with no further prompting from me) she had repealed her 6-year abstention from all things Warcraft. It has been decided: we will both be playing Cataclysm. Now I need to think of a name for my worgen!

  • Plus: no tail! Woo!

  • Roukas

    Awesome art to what looks like an equally awesome comic. God, *please* let them make a poster of that rooftop werewolf / worgen!

    Also, does anyone happen to know any of the skills and tactics that will be built into the worgen character class? Of course they’re aesthetically appealing, but I hope their gameplay factor matches this!

  • Speaking directly from being in the beta, I can tell you that worgen gameplay is as every bit of good as that delicious picture you see above.

  • Viergacht

    LOL so the ones in the game have hugely outsized feet, and the ones in the comic have ginormous hands?

  • His right hand seems proportional, Viergacht, so I think the left one just looks big because it’s foreshortened.
