Blizzard Releases Warcraft Graphic Novel as Prequel to Warcraft Movie
On June 7, 2016, Blizzard Entertainment released the Warcraft: Bonds of Brotherhood graphic novel. The 112-page novel is set decades before the soon-to-be released film, Warcraft. This new comic focuses on the lives of three of Azeroth's heroes -- Llane, Lothar, and Medivh -- and their alliance.
In a fantasy-action epic set decades before the film, the young and headstrong Llane, Lothar, and Medivh embark on a mission of vengeance that will forge them into heroes . . . the kind of heroes Azeroth will need in its darkest hour.
The story was conceptualized by Chris Metzen, and written by Paul Cornell. Metzen has written scripts for three of Blizzard Entertainment's major award-winning media franchises: Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft. Many may also recognize Cornell's work in the popular television drama, Doctor Who. The comic also features artwork by artists Mat Broome, Michael O’Hare, Eddie Nunez, Roy Allan Martinez, Ale Garza, and Mike Bowden. The cover art is by illustrator, Kevin Tong.
