Today we reveal the new front cover of World of Warcraft# 6 by Samwise Didier, and a 5-pages sneak preview. Issue# 6 will be at newsstands and comic shops on April 16th. The revelation of Lo’gosh’s true identity will happen at issue# 6 when Lo’gosh meets Jaina Proudmoore in Theramore. The old woman warlock in the cover is probably Aegwynn … Medivh’s mother.
As you may recall, during our Q&A with Walter Simonson in November, I asked if the human hero would meet Aegwynn in Theramore—those who haven’t read World of Warcraft: Cycle of Hatred by Keith R.A. DeCandido, Jaina found Aegwynn in Kalimdor and worked together to banish a powerful demon back to the Twisting Nether. Aegwynn has remained beside Jaina ever since in Theramore as Jaina’s personal advisor. Aegwynn’s true form remains disguised. Some fans think Aegwynn is the night elf named Pained in the World of Warcraft MMO. Others that it is the male archmage at Jaina’s side. We will probably find out that mystery in this issue.
You can view the front cover of issue# 6 and the 5-pages sneak preview at our World of Warcraft Comic Book section here.
