    Well, last week we teased you with an image and told you we would be announcing something on Monday. Guess what? It's Monday so I guess we better be announcing something.

    I'm very pleased to announce a new WoW comic that we're putting out for your enjoyment. Check out "Emissary" at wowcomic.stratics.com!

    So what is "Emissary" and what is it about? Well, it's more of an online graphic novel being put together by Barry T. Smith of Inktank and Angst Technology fame. But here's what it's about in the artist's own words:

    And so it begins, not with a bang but with a … thing … that makes the bang … being*jammed into a wolf’s gaping maw.

    What is this, you ask? Another World of Warcraft
    comic? Why yes, it is. But this WoW comic stands out in that it is the
    first long form comic done by someone who has left the wrap around
    comfort of his four panel security blanket.

    That right folks, Barry T. Smith, of the webcomics InkTank and Angst Technology,
    is trying his hand at a whole new graphic storytelling venue. From
    going long form to digital inking and coloring,*I’ve decided to go off
    the deep end.

    INTO! Dive into the deep end. Sorry.

    pretty nervous about this project because it is such a departure from
    my four panel safety zone. And I am immensely excited about this
    project exactly because it is such a departure from my established
    safety zone. I am expecting a bit of a bumpy ride a first as I learn
    digital inking and using grayscales, but hopefully I have concocted a
    story that will entertain and can present it in a graphical style that
    will explode your eyes with pure awesomeness.


    So, feel free to kick back with us every Monday and see what sort of webcomicers brew I’m serving up. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry…

    Oh wait, I think that’s going to be me. Who knows what the hell you’ll do. Just be sure to come back each week.

    Thanks for reading!

    The site design is still in the early stages, so bear with us as we plan on sprucing that up a bit in the future. But be sure to check out the Emissary and tell your friends. As you can tell by the art it's going to be a fun filled ride!
