From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up–This volume includes the four issues of the comic-book series. The story is a tie-in to the 2008 release of the Wrath of the Lich King game expansion. It begins in the midst of the Second War between orcs and humans, during which Highlord Alexandros Mograine takes possession of a powerful crystal. The action jumps forward in time to show how the crystal was turned from an object of evil to part of a weapon for good, the sword known as Ashbringer. As war rages on, alliances break down and brother turns against brother, leading to the end of the Knights of the Silver Hand and the rise of Scarlet Crusade and Argent Dawn. Computer-colored illustrations bring the action to life, and Neilson's debut comics effort is more than competent. A must-have for the online-gaming crowd.–Beth Gallego, Los Angeles Public Library END

Ashbringer was a more enjoyable graphic novel that fans of World of Warcraft's story need to check out. The art work is fantastic even though Darion Morgraine looked too anime ish with the Cloud Strife wanttobe hairdo. The story does move fast like the main WoW comic story, but this time I read it all the way through and felt satisfied for the mini history lesson. The only big problem is if you are not a player or fan of Blizzard's Warcraft universe then this will probably be strange to you. This really is only for World of Warcraft fans.
The only bad thing is the style of drawing in my oppinion, though I have realy liked the colors... (I would have prefered more elegant lines, more like manga, but with the colors). The drawing aside, this is a FIVE STARS.
Recomended for all the "Lore-freaks", like my self. All hail WoW \o/
I give it four stars instead of five because, as I mentioned, while it answers some questions, it also raises new ones which it doesn't answer, leaving me "still hungering for answers".
I would recommend this to anyone interested in warcraft lore. But you'll have more questions about the scourge and ashbringer leaving than going in. You can tell there's more before, more during, and more after, but you don't get it. You might be a little lost, unless you already know some of the warcraft lore. Like, I said, 1-2 more issues would have flushed this story out for anyone not familiar with warcraft looking for a complete read.
