Brazilian artist Jheremy Rapaak posted three preview images from the upcoming DC Comics World of Warcraft: Bloodsworn Graphic Novel. Hank Kanalz revealed details about this graphic novel during the SDCC 2011 Blizzard World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo Swag Show Panel .
I got to say I dig Jheremy Rapaak’s artwork style. The amount of details in the armor sets, and the face expressions are stunning. The large scene in the third image is a mere glimpse into how awesome the splash pages within the graphic novel will be. The inker and colorist will either have fun working on Jheremy Rapaak’s illustrations, or ask for a raise with all the work required to bring them to life.
I can’t wait to see the first colored preview scans. According to Hank Kanalz, as said in the SDCC 2011 panel, both OGN (Graphic Novels) will hit newsstands and comics shops by the fourth quarter of 2011. DC Comics will very likely announce a release date and provide solicitations in the upcoming next weeks.
