As far as tie-ins go, a comic of the hugely popular World of Warcraft wasn’t a big leap of imagination. So, it should be little surprise that DC Comics has announced that it has something in the works.

The comic will be out in monthly instalments with the first out this Autumn and written by Walter Simonson with feature art by Ludo Lullabi and inker Sandra Hope. Jim Lee and Blizzard's Senior Art Director Samwise Didier will work on covers for the first six issues.

For fans wanting to get an early look at what will be on offer, preview art from the series will debut at Comic-Con International, held in San Diego, CA from July 26-29, however we can bring you an idea of the story…

The first storyline begins when a human is found unconscious on the shores of Kalimdor, with no memory of who he is or how he arrived there. Enslaved by an orc shaman, the man must fight for survival against members of both the Alliance and the Horde.
