Artwork: 4.5 out of 5
Wow this is one great looking book. Did you see that cover, HOWLY WOLF! Just the design and the colors alone make that one cover to be reckoned with. The interiors don’t stray to far away from the cover either. This book is just flat-out GORE-Geous. I think it’s the werewolf lover in me that makes me say that, but the colors, shading and details on every panel, I got a drool spot on page one for goodness sake! I’m just flipping through my laminated copy and still mesmerized by how great this book looks.
Story: 4.0 out of 5
This is where we get a little tricky in terms of whats going on here. I was originally going to pass on this one because of the WOW title, but I am glad I didn’t. I know nothing about the game other than the fact that it is a game, so that can kinda throw some people off initially, but stick it out and give it a try, because what was inside was a really good story, that only at the end moved into a “history” lesson when it comes to the WOW. Basically the story is there, it is meant for people who might not know anything about the game and people who do know about the game, get a back story on the cast.
Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
While the artwork is the overall winner here, I will come back to the story no questions asked. While I was afraid of reading something that might be beyond me in terms of it tying into the game, this book welcomed me in, slashed at my face a little and left me satisfied. I won’t be playing the game anytime soon, but I will be reading this mini series because I am kind of excited to see where it is heading. I say werewolf fans this is a must read, horror fans in general check it out.
