Hm, that Starcraft one might be interesting to me.
I don't know how many day's of my life I wasted on that.
And from what I understand WoW is much worse.

The WoW "manga" didn't really feel like any part of the franchise. I mean, I could've at least seen it if it was loosely based on any part of the franchise, but all it left me was it was an okay Fantasy novel turned into a GN. Essentially, weak.

I don't really hold any hope for the latest "manga."

If Keith R.A. DeCandido is indeed the writer for Starcraft then I have high hopes. Can't wait for more information. Wonder which race it'll focus on...

The next WoW I'm not too sure about. Only read the first two volumes but it certainly didn't leave me wanting to buy the last volume. But who knows, I'll keep an open mind and will check it out when it's released.

Not many people would really want to read about the game, they'd rather be playing it.

it's just one of those things about Tokyo Pop. I see a lot of things on there that really doesn't look like manga, and seeing this, I just see it as an attempt to just keep milking more money out of a cash cow franchise.

So why not Draenei porn? That would sell like hotcakes than the regurgitated crap they pump out.

I have little to no interest in either of these manga series. I never bothered with WoW; and any story of Starcraft -- I got enough out of the games. Eh, if I'm bored I'll at least check out the Starcraft series.
