“My son. A terrible darkness has returned to our world.”
What is the price of peace? This is a question that Anduin Wrynn must answer as war against an ancient foe begins anew and hidden enemies threaten his very life.
In “Anduin: Son of the Wolf,” a letter from Anduin’s father, King Varian, speaks of ill times ahead, prompting the young ruler to ponder leadership and responsibility. Anduin must face his fears and decide if he can defend Azeroth while still keeping true to his beliefs.
Summary from Goodreads.
Boy am I glad that I have finished this World Of Warcraft: Legion mini-series. Even though I have not played World Of Warcraft, I would have thought that this series may have persuaded me to give it a shot. It had actually done the opposite. My friends in high school did a better job of making it sound exciting than what I got.
The story of this final issue was around the son of a fallen King, and how he plans to go about the war to come. He has enemies trying to convince him that his father’s way was better, and now he will lose because he plans to go about this war very differently. This talk between them, whilst giving a good back story to the fallen King’s son, did not excite or entertain me. It just set up how his decision at the end of it is down to his either upholding his personal belief or listening to his enemy and going back to how his father was fighting this ongoing war.
The artwork was neither here nor there. Because we got the fallen King’s son backstory in the form of flashbacks, it jumps around to various stages in his life, which calls for drastically different colour palette’s that at times, do not mix. Aside from that, it did nothing to impress me. The characters did not seem to have much life or personality, and overall it just felt very bland.
With all 4 issues in the series being free (at the time of my writing this), you will not lose anything if you decided to read them.
