Digital Comics Store Update (8th December 2010)

Hello everyone, hope you are not too snowed in wherever you are. We have no less than 50 comics to warm your mitts this week.
Before I get to our usual highlights, I’m pleased to present an exclusive and very topical extra we put together for you. A best seller since its release on the store a couple of weeks ago, DC’s World of Warcraft: Curse of the Worgen has been something of a godsend to the hoardes of WoW fans eager to discover more about Cataclysm’s new playable race. We spoke exclusively to writers Micky Neilson and James Waugh and artists Ludo Lullabi and Tony Washington to get the lowdown on the mini-series and its characters, the challenges they faced in capturing Azeroth’s narrative and visual style, and their comic industry influences – check out exclusive Q&A here.
In the Marvel corner, the first four issues of NYX (2003). Meet some very special homeless teenage mutants in New York City: time-freezing Kiden, shape-shifting Tatiana, body-shifting Bobby, his mysterious brother Lil Bro, the female-Wolverine X-23 (in her first comic appearance!) and Cameron, a woman with no powers. Marvel’s own Joe Quesada and superstar-in-waiting Josh Middleton bring the world of the X-Men to the streets, and the struggle for survival has never been more uncertain…
Survival is also an issue in BOOM! Studios’ Dead Run. The end isn’t near… it’s here. America has become a wasteland, leaving the few cities that remain transformed into impenetrable fortresses. Only the very brave or the very foolish voluntarily step foot outside the protective confines of the mega-cities, and Nick Masters is a bit of both. His trade keeps him alive but what happens when he fails a local crime lord?… Find out here.
For those who can’t resist a bit of heroic fantasy, issue #1 of IDW’s Dungeons & Dragons is here! Writer John Rogers (Blue Beetle) and artist Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation) bring us a tale of high adventure and deep secrets set in the D&D world we know and love. Read more on this series from the IDW editors here.
And now for something completely different: Cartoon Books bring us Jeff Smith’s RASL, mixing sci-fi, noir, Native American culture and hardboiled crime in high-contract black & white glory. If you are already a follower issue #8 is out today, but if you want to try this truly unique series the easy way we also have two bundles bringing issues #1-4 and #5-8 at a discount. No excuses!
