I read this little five part comic series a while ago and while I know the story at its core now, I still find it very entertaining. Now I will not give it 5 stars, since it still has some flaws but it definitely has its very strong points and what it does right it truly does right.

The story itself is not brand-new but very well delivered.

That the main character is dealing with certain things so well is no trait of a Marty Stu but fits his background and age, so do these of other people. The sto...more

Thought I would try this, just for something a little different. The reviews I read appeared to suggest this was worth my time. Unfortunately, the reviews were misleading, at least to me.
I thought the artwork was sloppy, the storyline simple, the writing cramped and unstylish.
Again, this is my opinion. I appreciate the time and effort that went into this work, but it def. was not my taste.

'Curse of the Worgen' covers present days in Gilneas where the gruesome murders happen as well as events thousands years past when the worgen first appeared. I like both parts of the story and the way it flows from one time period to another so it seems natural and not forced. The art was amazing, especially facial expressions and movements of the characters. Besides, I could truly feel the characters: Halford Ramsey and the way he puts cold logic above all things; Belrysa and her desire to undo...more
This is the first comic I've ever read and I can't say I'm a fan. The excessive use of bolded words was very distracting to me, especially since it seemed completely random as to which words were bolded. I think the story itself was good, but would have been better as a novel.
Wow, that was surprisingly good. I've read most of the other Warcraft comics, and though they've been fun, they haven't grabbed me like this did. And not only that, but the events of this book mesh perfectly with the greater lore of the Warcraft series, in some very surprising ways.

My only complaint is that it's often hard to tell what's going on in each panel. I love the art, but it often becomes too frenzied. Maybe just some bolder linework would make everything work better; I don't know.
Very interesting story about an investigator who gets turned into a Worgen and learns their tale.
Beautiful art, clear storyline. <3
