Wildstorm must be switching to trade format

If the following news about Wildstorm's plans for comics they're publishing based on World of Warcraft and Star Craft is any suggestion, this is another sign of how monthly periodical format is being abandoned:
DC Comics' Wildstorm division has been handling a monthly comic book series based on Blizzard's World of Warcraft and StarCraft franchises for some time. However, word from IGN is that the publisher has decided to cancel both of these monthly comics in favor of a series of original stories in a graphic novel format. The publisher feels that such a format "will give our artists and storytellers more room to explore Blizzard's rich, varied worlds and flesh out the characters that inhabit these places."
And that could be the best way to go with superhero comics too. I won't be surprised if in time, we'll be seeing just that take effect. All that will be left then is to fix the quality of the writing.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
