Default Submit SDCC: Blizzard Panel Questions

A friend of Omacron is attending San Diego Comic Con. She will forward questions to the Blizzard panel -- panelists: Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter, Hank Kanalz (DC), Christie Golden, Cory Jones (WoW TCG), and Kat Hunter (Blizzard Licensing Project Manager).

I will try to get clearance for her to do some one-on-one interviews on top of the public Q&A. That's not guaranteed, but at least the public Q&A is a venue to ask on your behalf.

Topics:
  • WoW: Alliance graphic novel
  • WoW: Horde graphic novel
  • StarCraft graphic novel
  • WoW TCG
  • JinX t-shirts
  • Diablo III: Book of Cain
  • Dioramas
  • Action Figures

Hmmm hard topics

Will we see the new heroes from the TCG in wow?

What sort of conflicts are we getting in the alliance and horde graphic novels?

I guess that's it

Hmm think I have a Diablo one...

We know that Deckard Cain has a history with many characters in the story. Is it possible we will learn more about his past with characters such as Tal Rasha or Tyrael?

Will we see any of the characters created for the action-figure series used in other media?

(1) Are there any plans to return Warcraft to a monthly comic format?
(2) What factors were behind the decision to forgo monthlies and instead pursue graphic novels?
(3) Might we expect to see TCG, Action figure, and graphic novel characters appear in the World of Warcraft game world?

What would you say you're most excited about in the Alliance graphic novel and Horde graphic novel respectively?

All of it, until it is used elsewhere.

An animated series (anime-style if you wish so): when?

With how far the world has gone, it's only common sense that we should get a cartoon series sooner or later. Wouldn't be hard to produce a machinimia series, or a series just using all the in-game models.

I don't like plots that are impenetrable and complex, only supported by action and boobs.

There WAS a Warcraft manga though...

By anime I don't mean typical DBZ, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece... battle manga, but more fantasy-oriented series, like Slayers.

I goddamn love Slayers .

If they must ape an anime styled series, at least ape one that does it right... which ironically isn't japanese made. The Last Airbender series did so many things right with their storytelling and characterization. So, if they want to utilize a story structure, use that one!

Hey now, you be nice to One Piece.

Thanks for the opportunity, Medievaldragon!

Are there any plans to re-start the Legends and classes manga?

Thank you very much.

The question is:

Will Malfurion Stormrage appear in "Wolfheart"?

On a more serious note, I'd like to ask if there will be more... -attention- paid to the lore in them.

The example of Reghar being a slave owner, and Thrall making him an advisor, yet the conflict there never being addressed... Yeah.

That.

Those things.

THEY SHOULDN'T HAPPEN!

Are the plots of the Alliance and Horde graphic novels going to be the same, or have they been changed during the long hiatus between now and their announcement?

Is the out-of-game media (books, comics, manga etc.) going to continue to be the main method of telling important plot points in WoW (e.g. Aveena being the Sunwell, Varian's return to Stormwind, Malfurion's return in Stormrage, most of the events in the Shattering), or are these events going to be integrated into the game's narrative more in the future?
