Blizzard Publishing is a new book label from Blizzard Entertainment, which is “dedicated to developing and releasing new Blizzard publications and reissuing out-of-print titles in the company’s Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo settings,” according to a release from the company this week.
The first titles released under the new label are the World of Warcraft Adult Coloring Book, and some out-of-print Warcraft novels and manga, such as Warcraft: The Last Guardian by Jeff Grubb, World of Warcraft: Rize of the Horde by Christie Golden, and a pair of Warcraft Legends volumes.
“Great stories and inspiring artwork have always been at the heart of everything we do,” said senior vice president of story and franchise development at Blizzard Entertainment, Lydia Bottegoni in the release. “The creation of Blizzard Publishing gives us new opportunities to celebrate the art and stories of our games with Blizzard gamers as well as fantasy and sci-fi fans around the world.”
Blizzard Publishing is also looking to release a series of full-color coffee table art books, starting with Art of Hearthstone and Cinematic Art of StarCraft.
If you’re keen to get your hands on some Blizzard-published books right now, head over to the Blizzard store and pick up Blizzard Legends titles for USD$14.95 each, or Blizzard Manga titles and the WoW Adult Coloring Book for USD$12.95 each.
