Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in the rich universe of Blizzard's online role-playing game World of WarCraft, WarCraft: The Sunwell Trilogy recreates the world of Azeroth as you've never seen it before: as a manga!

The three-volume graphic novel series follows the adventures of Kalec, a blue dragon who has taken human form to escape the forces that seek to destroy his race, and Anveena, a maiden with a mysterious power. What starts as a flight for survival turns into a quest to save the entire High Elven Kingdom from the forces of the Undead Scourge.

Written by New York Times bestselling novelist Richard A. Knaak (WarCraft: War of the Ancients) and illustrated by Korean manga superstar Kim Jae-Hwan (King of Hell), The Sunwell Trilogy is a must-read manga for gamers around the world.

Review:

"From the world of the incredibly popular Warcraft online role-playing game comes this first manga of a trilogy. The war-torn world of Azeroth is plagued on all sides by evil dragons, power-hungry elves and the armies of the Undead Scourge. Just as a wary peace seems possible, the Sunwell, a source of unimaginable power previously thought to be lost, resurfaces. Kalec, a blue dragon who takes an appealing human form complete with Farrah Fawcett hair, is on a quest to prevent the Sunwell's destructive power from being realized. He is joined by Anveena, a quaint country girl with a world-changing secret. Together they encounter the stock set of fantasy characters: surly dwarves, stupid orcs, rugged warriors and beautiful maidens. There's betrayal, magic and, of course, pages and pages of sword fights. The backstory for the Warcraft world is so complicated it requires eight pages of prose to explain it in brief, and still much of the comic is spent on exposition. This volume manages to be incomprehensibly complicated and yet at the same time insipidly transparent. The art is attractive and easily digested, but the characters and plot are purely cookie-cutter creations. This work will please only hardcore fans of the game." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Based on the worldwide online gaming phenomenon, World of WarCraft, this epic adventure spans the realms of the Orcs, Humans, Elves, and the Undead.
