Blizzard, Tokyopop to release new StarCraft, Warcraft manga titles
Blizzard and Tokyopop are reportedly collaborating on two new manga titles based on Blizzard’s hit video game properties. One will be based on events occurring in World of Warcraft‘s Burning Crusade expansion while the other will be based on – brace yourselves – Starcraft. More details in the full article.
Word has come around that Blizzard and Tokyopop are once again bringing a couple of new manga titles based on Blizzard properties in the next two years. According to Blizzplanet, Tokyopop has revealed that one of the new titles will be set in the StarCraft universe.
The StarCraft manga, which will be helmed by Keith R.A. DeCandido, is still untitled, but it is reportedly expected to come waltzing into bookstores in August of this year. Things concerning the story itself are also still up in the air, so this new title could either be a StarCraft 2 manga or a StarCraft: Ghost manga.
The other manga title is Warcraft: Dragons of Outland. Blizzplanet reports that this title will be based on some of the events Jorad Mace and Tyri experience in Outland in World of Warcraft‘s Burning Crusade expansion. Warcraft: Dragons of Outland is expected to be released in March 2009.
