Another <A HREF="http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=134207">WoW Comic Interview</a>, this time by NewsARama. It's similar to the recent MTV interview (in that it addresses some of the same questions), but also touches on some different stuff and is an interesting read. The first few pages of issue #1 are also on here, in case you missed them from the MTV interview. Thanks <A HREF="http://www.blizzplanet.com">BlizzPlanet</a>.

From what I'm reading, it seems Simonson was the one who wanted to revisit the "missing diplomat" questline. Glad he did.

So the characters were based off of the action figures, not vice versa. Good to know. Or something.

The secondaries at least, not the main character, makes sense since i find it weird that an orc shaman of all people would enslave a human and use him for gladiator games.

I know that the new Horde has orcs with very distinctive attitudes compared to the old "RARG KILL EVERYTHING" Horde but this sounds something like a human would do.

Here's something perplexing...If Thrall was a gladiator and thus probably loathes that kind of show, so why is he allowing anyone (much less a Shaman) to gather up slaves for it?

Why are there Orc shamans on arena teams?

Here's something perplexing...If Thrall was a redeemer and thus loathes warlocks and necromancers as mentioned in the Warcraft III manual and banned those practices, why is he allowinga coven of warlocks to live and plot in his basement and allying himself with the undead who seek to wipe out the living?

The answer to both these questions is simple.

LORELOL?

have you done the questline that you can get around lvl 10 or so on the orc side? if he exterminated everyone in the ragefire chasm he would only have destroyed a small portion of the shadow council, he is trying to reach the upper chain of command.

The forsaken were controlled by the lich king,they had no control over what they were doing, isn't this situation familiar? if thrall turned his backs on them wouldn't he have been a hypocrit if he didn't believe in 'rehabilitation'? and I don't think he is aware of the wiping out the living part

So he hates necromancy and fel magic yet it's fine for warlocks to mingle with shaman and creatures that are abominations to his new faith are fine? Thrall is already a hypocrit.

Thrall is also a military commander. Who is he to deny these individuals a place in his home if they add something, a great something, to his military force. And before you say that the Horde is not at war with the Alliance, they ARE at war with various centaur, scourge, legion, quillboar, harpy, elemental and illidari factions.

So he bans something then allows it to continue. Condemns the Old Horde and does the same thing? I've ALWAYS said this was a stupid choice on Blizzard's part and made absofuckinlutely no sense. Thrall is going to turn out just like Doomhammer did.

First the orcs are "good" then they turn evil, then good, and now they seems to be steering them back around to a more darker side by allowing more and more to go on under their nose.

As a guy faced with enough problems with demonic and undead invasions, etc., would you antagonize powerful members of a cult willing to kill their own and further your goals?

The Warlock thing makes far more sense than slavery and gladiatorial games, because he can easily control that kind of stuff. There aren't powerful forces at work here, it's an easily disruptable slave trade.

Thrall just doesn't have the balls to deal with the problam like Orgrim did.

Right, stabbing someone in the back shows you have balls.
