So this is how Alliance people spend their time? When I meet them they are usually in a pile of corpses waiting for our Val'kyrs to raise them as new Forsaken:)) Lol! Ok, jokes aside. I loved this comics, it gave me some interesting insight into Warcraft lore. It is also exciting and action packed. All around cool.

I don't read many comics, but i found this one sparse and lacking in detail. I have greatly enjoyed the Warcraft lore over the years and i found this comic though checking off some nostalgia checkboxes, failed to actually tell a story enticing and worthy of the franchise. The way the scenes skip details i had to look and see if pages were missing from the book itself.

"Dark Riders" picks up the story of a few characters briefly introduced at the start of the monthly WoW comic series; the emotionally distant mage Karlain, his hot-tempered son Mardigan, and a jerkish priest named Revil Kost. We meet familiar characters in Duskwood and Goldshire along the way. This was meant to take place during the monthly issues, but was revised into a stand-alone when the comic series was cancelled.The pre-Cataclysm story focuses on Karlain and Mardigan's strained relationshi [...]

Video game franchise fiction is always a hit-or-miss proposition. When it's good, it evokes the spirit and feeling of the franchise. It reminds you of places you've seen in the game world and adventures that you shared in a shared, fictional reality.Dark Riders is like a cover version of a popular song that manages to hit all the notes correctly, but without any spark, any life, or any feeling of originality. You've got the cliches out in force: zealous priest, cold and distant mage, impetuous s [...]

Mardigan is always looking for a fight. So when his latest victim is found dead, he is the first suspect. He runs away to find the wolf cult. Meanwhile, his father, Karlain, has gone on a quest to find a missing artifact. When he returns home, he finds his house torn apart and covered in blood. He is sure that something happened to his son but the officials say that his son is a murderer. He doesn't believe it, so he goes on a search for his son and the wolf cult.I enjoyed this graphic novel. It [...]

Really enjoyed this! Compelling characters, intriguing storylines, really showed the classes too. And some humor thrown in. Might actually buy this one.

The art is beautiful but I grew bored of this quickly

I didn't care much for any of the main characters. They reminded me a bit too much of some of the worst players one can get randomly grouped up with. There was one character did enjoy, but through the stupidity of the lead characters, he doesn't make it to the end of the story. The over all story was just okay. It feels like it takes a back seat to getting the unlikeable characters established, and then reappears just when a new character is introduced. And when I say "reappears", I mean when th [...]

This storyline is supposed to be an "opener" for the WOW Dark Riders gamescape. I was hoping for more development of characters and plot. I fully expected a "suspense" ending of the written work as a lead-in to the gamescape, where all would be resolved in the gaming. But, the story seemed shallow to me, even if the art was well done. And to have no mystery concerning "Dark Riders" by the end of the story-even have the Riders "done in" by story end-left me feeling unsatisfied overall. Taken as a [...]

I won this through first read. I liked the illustrations and the book its self is pretty cool. My son took the book from me and said it was the coolest book ever. I have never played the game but my son says it's just like the game. So I think if you're a gamer you will love it and your kids probably will too.

The Good: quality artwork, authentic to setting, mostly easy to follow and navigateThe Bad: tropes, cliches, and obvious choices are abundant with a thinly veiled and clumsy commentary on faith vs logic.

It wasn't earth-shatteringly good, but it was a solid story. The artwork was cartoonish, like WoW comics are, but sometimes it fell flat for me--the eyes were just weird to look at in some panels. They were buggy and misshapen.

Nebylo to špatné, ale do plnohodnotného komiksu tomu chyběla ucelenost a důvěryhodnější vykreslení postav. Jako oddychovka dobrý, na doplnění universta Warcraftu taky dobrý. Ale nic hlubšího v tom nehledejme.

Enjoyed revisiting some characters that were present in other Extended Universe stories coupled with lore present since vanilla. Nice companion piece, but little worth past that. Fantastic art. Couldn't rate it higher.lorehound/news/blizzards-e

Not too bad. The art is nice, and it's fun to visit Azeroth from time to time. The titular Dark Riders have a fairly minor role in the story.

where were the women!? ladies like to go on adventures too. =(

Love the lore.
