Wrath of the Lich King Release Date, Collector’s Edition Announced!

The news you’ve all been waiting for (hopefully) has finally arrived! Blizzard has finally announced the release date for Wrath of the Lich King! They’ve also announced that there will indeed be a Collector’s Edition, and pricing information for both versions of the expansion!

The regular version of Wrath will run you $40 USD, and the collector’s edition will cost $70 USD.

What makes the collector’s edition (shown here) so special? Check it out:

* World of Warcraft: The Wrath of the Lich King on DVD-ROM.
* The Art of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, a 208-page book featuring never-before-seen images from the game.
* An exclusive in-game pet: Frosty, the baby frost wyrm.
* A behind-the-scenes DVD containing over an hour of developer interviews, the Wrath of the Lich King intro cinematic with director’s commentary, and more.
* The official soundtrack CD, containing 21 epic tracks from the game, along with exclusive bonus tracks.
* A mouse pad featuring a map of the newly opened continent of Northrend.
* Two World of Warcraft Trading Card Game March of the Legion™ starter decks, along with two exclusive cards available only in the Collector’s Edition.

I’ll certainly be trying to get the collector’s edition, but the regular edition is already available for pre-order at a number of online retailers if you want to stake your claim early! Head over to the official site for details!

Webcomics in the Key of WoW

If you’re like me, you have a ton of webcomics that you read on a regular basis. If you’re really like me, you have enough that it makes your friends wonder how you get any work done during the day if you keep up with them daily.

Unfortunately, of all of my webcomics, only a half-dozen of them or so pertain to World of Warcraft. Now, thanks to the fine folks over at WoWWiki, I can find way more than I ever wanted, thanks to their list of WoW-Related Webcomics, and so can you! Go forth and swell your bookmarks list!

Some of my favorites? I loved Hammar of Grammar before it died and the domain expired, I still love By Way of Booty Bay, Adventurs of Blanc, Manic Graffiti (Anya’s art is fantastic, and Dark Legacy Comics. Some of my faves thataren’t on the list are Ding! (of PvP‘s Scott Kurtz, shown above), Get Buffed, and Teh Gladiators. Enjoy!
