Ok, my experimental blogging/speculation venture didn’t go so well. So I will stick to my fort? … Lore. I have been in contact with DC Comics / Wildstorm for over a year now. Interviewed Walter Simonson (WoW writer), Ludo Lullabi (WoW artist) and Ben Abernathy (Starcraft Editor). DC Comics was kind to provide 225 StarCraft posters to giveaway. Leord has a StarCraftWire Challenge every week to give those away to fans. We have gotten exclusive preview scans. I met and interviewed Chris Metzen and Micky Neilson (Blizzard Creative Team)—the Diablo III lore head-honchos—at the New York Comic Con. I have open communication with these folks, and it would be a waste not to get the community involved.
I would like this Diablo III community to share their feedback and to get a discussion going concerning a possible Diablo Comic Book. All you have to do is to answer the following questions. Based on the feedback, I will forward it to DC Comics and Chris Metzen & Micky Neilson as a petition to see what happens. Diablo III will be in development for a while. And the fans who enjoy the lore as much as the gameplay might want to absorb as much as Blizzard gives out in printed media that expands the Diablo universe and that ties-in with Diablo II and Diablo III.
Imagine a comic book that—doesn’t necessarily spoils the Diablo III single player, but has to do with the past and much as the present. It’s been 20 years since the Worldstone was destroyed—so we could get some fill in blanks on what happened in those initial years after. We could probably see characters from the books show up in this comic book and see flashbacks from the novels, Diablo 1 or Diablo II.
