Yeah, that guy does appear in the comic. I don't play WoW but I guess I should've figured they would also put the creatures on the maps, lol.
I liked it (but maybe I'm biased as well because I'm a huge fan of the lore, lol...), but I think it went too fast, time seemed to fly past without much mention of what was happening in between, it was rushed and didn't allow for much character development, you really had to keep an eye on things like who is who and some characters I was keen on seeing only got a few lines because of the rushedness.
I like both Horde and Alliance almost equally, the only ones I hate and think are uninteresting are those cursed undead and the never-ending always-returning Dreadlords because I think Lordaeron was much cooler before it became Zombiefest Number 14574874 (seriously, Zombies are even more common in nowadays fiction than Vampires, and that's saying something!), but yeah I do like seeing more controversial main characters than Paladins. Still, the series shows even the Paladins are humans who have their flaws so that kinda drowns it out imo.
Therefore I'm also very interested in all groups willing to destroy the Undead, mostly I was hoping for more Scarlet Crusade / Abbendis action, and was somewhat dissapointed with their lack of action (especially since it seems we won't be seeing much more of them...
), but it was still a good read imo.
