''Curse of the Worgen'' is a five-part comic miniseries explaining the background and specifics of ''{{World of Warcraft}}'''s [[TheVirus Worgen Curse]]. It was written by Micky Neilson and James Waugh, and drawn/colored by Ludo Lullabi and Tony Washington.

''Curse of the Worgen'' primarily follows Halford Ramsey, a famous Gilnean detective in charge of investigating a rash of brutal murders known as the 'Starlight Slasher' murders. His searches lead him to discover the age-old legend of the Worgen Curse. The comic also touches in with characters from the in-game worgen starting zone as they deal with the beginnings of the zone's events.

!!''Curse of the Worgen'' contains examples of:
* AscendedExtra: In-game, Belrysa Starbreeze is a quest giver who appears briefly in the Worgen starting zone and, later on, she can be found as a priest trainer in Darnassus. ''Curse of the Worgen'' has her as a main character and explains much of her background.
* TheAtoner: Belrysa Starbreeze.
* {{Backstory}}: A good 80-90% of the comic consists of this.
** It also explains why there are Night elves in Gilneas in the starting zone experience though not why they brought an army with them.
* BigNo: Belysra when [[spoiler: Arvell is killed by a Legion demon's axe]].
* ClothingDamage: Unlike in the [[WorldOfWarcraft source material]], transforming into a Worgen results in one's clothes getting completely torn off. Near the end, Worgen with their [[MagicPants clothes intact]] appear, though.
* DeadpanSnarker: Halford has his moments.
--> '''Halford''': Pay attention to these words, Cox, for you will rarely, if ever, hear them again: You are correct.
* EnemyWithin: The Worgen curse for Halford [[spoiler: as well as Genn Graymane.]]
* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Ralaar starts out looking like your average Night Elf, but by the time he has become the Alpha of the Druids of The Pack, he's a hulking mass of muscle and WildHair with a permanent SlasherSmile plastered across his face. And then he becomes [[WolfMan Alpha Prime]]...
* {{Expy}}: Halford is this to Franchise/SherlockHolmes. [[CharacterDevelopment At first.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Ralaar, and all the Druids of the Pack by extension.
--> '''[[OldMaster Malfurion Stormrage:]]''': [[DefiedTrope I will not become a monster to defeat monsters!]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Godfrey. Overlaps with FantasticRacism.
* MsExposition: Belrysa. Alpha Prime also serves as a less-unbiased form of this.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Malfurion after [[spoiler: Arvell's death]]. [[WhatTheHellHero Ralaar calls him out on it.]]
--> '''Ralaar:''' (to Belrysa) Let Malfurion [[spoiler: tend to the corpse]] his wise choices have created.
** Belrysa has a similar realization when [[spoiler: Alpha Prime, formerly Ralaar, attacks Malfurion]] after they have torn a Legion fortress to the ground. Bonus points for using what must be the [[OhMyGods Night Elven counterpart]] of the TropeNamer expression.
-->'''Belrysa:''' [[BigNo No! No no no NOOOO!]] Mother Elune, what have I done?
* NotQuiteDead: Darius Crowley.
* NotSoDifferent: Belrysa attempts this with Alpha Prime, by telling him that Malfurion himself tried out the Pack Form once but was equally unable to control it. Unfortunately, this only makes Alpha Prime call his old mentor a hypocrite.
* SayMyName: '''[[RageAgainstTheMentor MALFURION STORMRAAAAAAGE!]]'''
* ThatManIsDead: Ralaar would like to remind Malfurion that...
--> "There is '''no''' more Ralaar... there is only '''Alpha Prime!!!'''"
* TheSpock: Halford displays shades of this.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Genn's relationship with Liam has this in spades.
