WoW comic confirmed

It's official: there's going to be a WoW comic (a few days ago we reported on intriguing hints to that effect). Here is DC's own page on it; it looks like it's going to be published under their Wildstorm line, which does a lot of fantasy-type stuff of (in my opinion) uneven quality. The release date for #1 is November 14th, and here are the credits: Written by Walter Simonson; Art by Ludo Lullabi and Sandra Hope; Cover by Jim Lee; Variant cover by [Blizzard's own art superstar] Samwise Didier.

You can also subscribe directly from DC for $23.99 for 12 issues, over at their page. There's some interesting concept art and some more cover images over there as well. And for the curious, the story summary of the first issue is after the jump.
When a human is found unconscious on the shores of Kalimdor, with no memory of who he is or how he arrived there, how will he survive? Enslaved by an Orc Shaman, he must fight for survival against members of both the Alliance and the Horde. Will he strike the uneasy balance with the other races he'll need to find the secrets of his past?

I probably won't be picking this one up; most tie-in comics aren't very good, and I personally don't tend to like Wildstorm's stuff. What about you guys?
