World Of Warcraft Chronicle, Vol. 2
By Chris Metzen, Matt Burns, Robert Brooks, Peter Lee
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 14, 2017
While there have been tons of video games over the years with deep lore and history, few can lay claim to the size and mass of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft universe. Last year, we were given a deeper look into the history of the game’s world Azeroth with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 1.
Now, Blizzard Entertainment and Dark Horse Publishing are getting ready to dive back in with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 2. While there have been many novels and comics to spawn from the rich history of Warcraft, retired creative director and father of Warcraft lore Chris Metzen with the Chronicle series gives us a more revealing peek into the lore from the man himself. Volume Two like before will also feature art by fan favorites Peter Lee, Joseph Lacroix, and Alex Horley. Metzen is joined once again by Matt Burns and Robert Brooks in authoring.
Volume 1 covered the pre-history and origins of the world and covered the history up to the point of “The Last Guardian” or as most know him, Medivh. Volume 2 picks up the story there and gives fans even more sought after details. Warcraft loremasters and fans new to the series following 2016’s Warcraft directed by Duncan Jones, will be excited to find out what secrets they missed regarding Medivh and his dark tower Karazhan. Furthermore, there will be plenty about the Orc and Draenai homeworld of Draenor and the events surrounding the First and Second Wars. Even the popular MMORPG World of Warcraft have not touched on some of the subjects here as it goes back to much earlier in the game series. As you can gather, these books offer a unique look into the Warcraft mythos and with Metzen retired now, this could be our only chance to hear the histories from the man who created them.
Make sure to pick up a copy of the World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 2 and get the chance to get lost in the mythology and history of Azeroth. Also, be sure to check out our free preview of the book below.
