DC Comics Diablo – Submit Questions for Aaron Williams

We are gathering questions for Aaron Williams, writer of the upcoming DC Comics Diablo mini-series formerly known as Diablo: Sword of Justice. Chris Metzen and DC Hank Kanalz discussed details of the mini-series during the San Diego Comic Con held last July.

Diablo # 1

From the world and legends of Sanctuary, the setting for the award-winning Diablo video game, comes the tale of a hero’s birth. Jacob has fled from his homeland in the north, hunted by his kinsmen for the crime of murder. Led by the visions of an ancient prophet, pursued by his childhood friend, Jacob finds his destiny in a desert cave at the foot of a mountain carved in two by the sword of an archangel – Tyrael. But will Jacob be able to claim the sword that could save his people, if not the world, before he’s brought to “justice”?

Diablo # 2

The Dreadlands are being corrupted by madness, causing its victims to open their flesh and lash out at friend and foe alike. Jacob, a young fugitive from the city of Staalbreak, may be Sanctuary’s only hope to stop this plague before it consumes or destroys mankind. His destiny is bound to a mysterious sword and the woman who watches over it, but his own troubled soul may keep him from embracing its true power in time.

  • No question at all? Really?
    Well, I hope I didn’t miss out the deadline.

    Will we see any major Diablo characters beside Tyrael?
    When is the comic actually taking place/
    Is the female Wizard the actual Wizard class we play? Or somehow related?
    Will there be a big bad demon lord involved in the story? Or perhaps an angel?

    How long after D2 does this series take place?

    Besides the obvious references to Tyrael are there any other cameos that will appear?
