Children’s publishing house Scholastic has teamed up with publisher Blizzard Entertainment for a new series of books based on the video game World of Warcraft.

The action-adventure series, which is aimed at 8-12 based year old readers, is set in Azeroth.
Comic book author Greg Weisman will write the first book and Blizzard artist Samwise Didier will do the artwork. Blizzard artist Stephane Belin is designing the cover.

“When Blizzard initially approached us about creating an original series for kids, we were not only intrigued but immediately mesmerized,” stated Debra Dorfman, vice president and publisher, global licensing, and media consumer products at Scholastic. “This has truly been a fantastic collaboration and we look forward to sharing this thrilling adventure with boys and girls everywhere.”

The first title is slated to come out in the U.S., the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and Canada in November 2016. The second edition drops in November 2017.
