The Garwulf’s Corner: An Odyssey Into Diablo and the World Beyond the Video Game by Robert B. Marks (Diablo: Demonsbane) hit bookstores a few days ago. The digital version for Kindle is now available, and may be read on your PC/Mac and internet browser with the free reading apps.
Blizzplanet member @Handclaw sent out new waves of photos taken on Thursday and Saturday. The photos hail from the Developer signing session, the Hearthstone: YogCast Live, and Cosplayers at GamesCom 2014.
Developer Signing Session
Hearthstone: YogCast Live
I’ll interview soon Robert B. Marks, better known as Garwulf’s Corner writer and author of the first Diablo eBook… Diablo: Demonsbane.
If you are an old-school Diablo player who enjoyed Robert’s column, we would love to get some of your personal questions. He will publish soon a book that collects all of the Garwulf’s Corner articles throughout its lifespan.
The title is Garwulf’s Corner: An Odyssey Into Diablo and the World Beyond the Video Game. The book will be on sale August 15, 2014.
I’m aiming to have the interview around that date. So go ahead and share your questions for an old friend of the community.

Blizzard Entertainment announced a partial list of San Diego Comic Con 2014 exclusive merchandise. Some of the leftovers will be available at the Blizzard gear online store after the event.
If you’re headed to San Diego Comic-Con in July, you don’t want to miss out on visiting the Blizzard booth! Blizzard is raiding SDCC once again, and we’re excited to give you a sneak peek at this year’s exclusives and premiere merchandise. On top of snagging these exclusives and brand new, never-before-seen premiere items, you’ll want to check out the other exciting stuff happening around our booth over the course of the weekend.
Our San Diego Comic-Con exclusives are a limited run produced only for the convention, so make sure to grab them early. If you’re tuning in from home, we’ll have several different items featured on the Blizzard Gear Store (gear.blizzard.com) after the event.
Check out this year’s SDCC exclusives lineup:
Nether Faerie Dragon Plush
Catch one if you can! This soft and huggable fey friend is made of premium plush materials and features wings you can pose and a tail with over 50 points of articulation. The exclusive Comic-Con Nether variant is limited to 2,000 pieces. (Standard Faerie Dragon coloring coming to the Blizzard Gear Store soon™!)
Funko Pop! Vinyl—Primal Kerrigan
Back from her vacation on Zerus, Kerrigan has got her groove back and gone primal! Primal Kerrigan is an SDCC-exclusive variant of her Pop! Vinyl figure and is limited to 2,500 pieces. (The non-exclusive variant Funko Pop! Vinyl Kerrigan is available now.)
Cute But Deadly Cloaking Zeratul
He’s cute. He’s deadly. He’s invisible-ish (and so is his box). Blizzard’s Cute But Deadly figure line continues with this comical cloaked variant of the not-so-comical Dark Templar (limited to 2,500 pieces).
Whimsyshire Treasure Goblin Plush
Trapped among the rainbows and unicorn meadows of Whimsyshire, this Treasure Goblin’s gone (adorably) native! Catch one for a lifetime of snuggles . . . or don’t and regret it forever. This Whimsyshire variant is limited to 3,500 pieces. (Standard Treasure Goblin coloring coming to the Blizzard Gear Store soon™!)

- Cute But Deadly Shirt for Men and Women

NECA will launch a second Diablo action figure and pre-orders have begun. Grab yours while supplies last and increase your collection. This Shadow Diablo action figure will be released on August 2014. Some retailers will ship it on September.
- Diablo III Shadow of Diablo Deluxe Scale 9-Inch Action Figure
- Diablo III Lord of Terror Deluxe Scale 9-Inch Action Figure
- Diablo III – El’Druin – The Sword of Justice Prop Replica
Since 1996, a name has been whispered – the name of the living nightmare that even demons dread. The terror that can never die. That name is Diablo: the namesake of Blizzard Entertainment’s best-selling action RPG series!
A deluxe action figure from NECA, this fantastic action figure is the creative collaboration between Blizzard’s senior sculptor Brian Fay and NECA’s Alex Heinke. Honoring the 2014 “Reaper of Souls” expansion to Diablo III, the end result of this figure brings to life the Lord of Terror’s menacing shadow with terrifying precision.
Diablo stands over 9-inches tall, with a poseable tail that’s over 12-inches long. Each figure is hand-painted and features over 25 points of articulation for poses to inspire panic and despair in other action figures.
Amazon lowered the price of Diablo III for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 to only $19.99 plus FREE shipping until June 3, 2014 or while supplies last.
Perfect price tag for those who wish to jump into the fray slaying demons in Sanctuary and beyond. Tell your friends ASAP, and hopefully they might join your group for adventures and loot.
