World of Warcraft: Pearl of Pandaria is an original graphic novel set in the Warcraft universe, and will tie into the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion pack. It will be set before the Shattering and will give a look at Pandaria before the mists protecting the island were clear. The graphic novel became available for purchase on September 19, 2012.
At Blizzard's Comic-Con 2010 panel, a slide of pandaren artwork was included at the end of Wildstorm's portion of the presentation. The panelists mocked surprise and quickly returned to the previous slide, saying it wasn't supposed to be there and that they'd get in trouble.
The plot of the comic revolves around Chen Stormstout's niece, Li Li, as she ventures into the world with another unidentified pandaren warrior. A framed art preview was given out to fansite webmasters during the March 2012 Mists of Pandaria Press Tour.
