This is my favorite of all the WoW comics i've read. It was lore rich, but also had a ton of heart and was a great story whether you love wow or just picked it up. Amazing art and smart dialogue. The authors are listed wrong here. I think it was written by blizzard game writers... Great stuff!

About the story:

If any of you play the World of Warcraft MMORPG, you all are bound to have encountered and know what a Worgen is. A new faction introduced with Cataclysm, they are the representation of the popular mythical fantastical creatures known commonly as werewolves.

The Warcraft Universe has always strived to maintain a thorough and rich canonical history throughout its timeline and to establish a well deserved and accredited pantheon. To add to this already extensive and rich repertoire, we are introduced to the back story of the Worgen. To those familiar with the opening quest chain in the starting zone for the race, you all will have no doubt followed the storyline (and if you're lucky and/or curious enough done the Forsaken side of the quests as well) as to how the Worgen fit in into the modern version of the Alliance faction.

Taking a page right from the quest chain (no pun intended), this book introduces us to a protagonist who is a sleuth, an extremely clever and astutely observant genius with an incredible acumen for logical reasoning and minute deduction (very much inspired by a certain asexual sociopath popularized by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle). As we follow his journey through the by-lanes and back-allies of Gilneas City, we observe his transformation from an ignorant and obnoxious arrogant human to a compassionate enlightened but ferocious beast with a penchant for meat - especially the human kind.

Now mind you, if you all feel that this comes across as a horror story, it certainly is in many aspects. Taking inspiration from crime noir, detective fiction, thriller novels, and, horror stories, what emerges is a wonderful blend of an enthralling and engaging saga which keeps the page turning.

Warcraft has always been one of my favorite universes. This book elaborates on the Worgen by telling an amazing "detective" style story. It's actually a series of comic books\graphic novels that have been compiled together. Needless to say it's exciting and the artwork is amazing. I recommend it for anyone who is a fan of werewolves or Warcraft in general. Plus this copy is hardcover and dirt cheap.

That is one of the best WoW comics I have ever read. It gives you a great detail in the creation of the worgen race. It is filed with excitement till the end.

I recommend this to every worgen and WoW fan. :)
