Cartoonist Talks World of Warcraft
8:03 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
World of Warcraft community site Allakhazam.com has posted an interview with cartoonist Bill Amend, creator of the popular comic strip Foxtrot. It turns out that Bill is an avid World of Warcraft player, and has recently incorporated the game, or at least a parody of it, into his strip.
In the series of strips, which ran in papers last week, main character Jason becomes addicted to an online game called "World of Warquest". Bill came up with the idea for the series of strips as he was preoccupied with his druid hitting level 20 and gaining the cat form ability.
Bill had this to say about what he likes and dislikes about the game:
Iím pretty hooked. I love the design of the various regions. Itís like traveling to Middle Earth. I like the social aspect. None of my real world friends play online games, so itís fun to have online friends who share the interest. I do wish some of the quests didnít take so long (BFD, Gnomeregan, etc.), as itís hard to find huge chunks of time in my life to do them, but thatís part of the challenge of them, I guess.Head over to Allakhazam.com to read the rest of the interview and to check out the Foxtrot "World of Warquest" strips.
