In addition to the loads of Superman, Batman, and other superhero comics, DC Comics has announced plans to publish a new comic book series based on Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft.

The monthly series will be written by Walter Simonson, with art by Ludo Lullabi.

The first storyline of the new ongoing series 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. He strikes uneasy relationships with other races in his quest to find the secrets of his past.

Just a few months ago, DC Direct announced it would sell World of Warcraft action figures. World of Warcraft #1 arrives in November.

This is really big news for the 2.4 million fans of the video-game (myself included) who really get into the mythos of the game and want to explore the world through different stories. My only hope is it is better than the god-awful manga series from last year.

Take the jump for three covers and concept art by Lullabi.
