Blizzard Entertainment, maker of World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo, comes to Comic-Con each year armed with all-new things for fans to rabidly consume. From books to belts to food to thigh-high demon socks, Blizzard and its partners innovate new ways for fans to spend, spend, spend.
What’s new this year?
Plenty of things for fans of Diablo to wear, including a very nice looking Tyrael hoodie and a Demon Hunter-inspired coat. WoW elixir, StarCraft and Warcraft Mega Bloks, novels, graphic novels, trading cards and much more. The video game maker and its partners – DC, Jinx!, Cryptozoic Entertainment – showed off the good coming through 2012.
Of note for the Blizzard loving literature enthusiast, Blizzard Entertainment’s Chris Metzen said at today’s Comic-Con panel that the novel StarCraft: Ghost: Spectres is essentially the novelization of the indefinitely on-hold (canceled?) video game StarCraft: Ghost. Metzen also said that the company’s upcoming Diablo book will focus on the events that occur between Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III.
