Curse of the Worgen is a five-part comic miniseries explaining the background and specifics of World of Warcraft's Worgen Curse. It was written by Micky Neilson and James Waugh, and drawn/colored by Ludo Lullabi and Tony Washington.
Curse of the Worgen primarily follows Halford Ramsey, a famous Gilnean detective in charge of investigating a rash of brutal murders known as the 'Starlight Slasher' murders. His searches lead him to discover the age-old legend of the Worgen Curse. The comic also touches in with characters from the in-game worgen starting zone as they deal with the beginnings of the zone's events.
Curse of the Worgen contains examples of:
- The Atoner:Belrysa Starbreeze.
- Backstory: A good 80-90% of the comic consists of this.
- Dead Little Sister: Ana.
- Expy: Halford is this to Sherlock Holmes. At first.
- Jerkass: Godfrey. Overlaps with Fantastic Racism.
- Ms. Exposition: Belrysa. Alpha Prime also serves as a less-unbiased form of this.
- Not Quite Dead: Darius Crowley.
- The Spock: Halford displays shades of this.
- "Well Done, Son" Guy: Genn's relationship with Liam has this in spades.
