Marvel Comics is bringing the Ultimate Universe to an end with Cataclysm, a 6-issue miniseries bringing Galactus to Earth and finding allowing him to feast on the planet like a tasty appetizer! The devourer of worlds has tried to have Earth for a snack for many years and there’s something a little exciting at the thought of seeing him actually get to quell his hunger!
The miniseries comes from writers Joshua Hale Fialkov and Mico Suayan. It’s hard to believe that Brian Michael Bendis isn’t on this one, too!
Here below is the official synopsis for the series and particularly for Cataclysm #0.1 from the House of Ideas, as well as a preview of the issue.
Any MMORPG fan who’s not been hiding under a rock since around last Christmas knows that World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is going live in just one day on December 7, 2010.
If you were hiding under that rock, it’s probably only been about a month for you. That’s right, while we were waiting Blizzard had been dropping down little patches laden with treats to make those “end of the expansion blues” just a little less tedious to bear with. Most recently we saw a complete overhaul to every character class in terms of talent trees, timed events that wracked an Azeroth already in the midst of small changes with a surprising amount of elemental attacks, cults preaching the end of the world, and finally, with the last sizable patch came ‘The Shattering’ of the World we all knew.
So with a whole new ‘World’ before us and absolutely zero meaningful raiding going on while we all wait for the expansion to officially drop, what would one do to pass the time?! Well, I’ve complied a list of the 5 things you are going to love about the new Azeroth, the upcoming Cataclysm expansion, and for some of you, a game you thought had grown stale and old.

Blizzard Entertainment launched a site for Cataclysm, the third expansion for their World of Warcraft MMO game, which features a preview of things to come.
Two new races will make their debut in this expansion: the former slaves of jungle trolls on the Isle of Kezan, the Goblin race and Worgen, a race of feral wolf-beasts whose origins remain steeped in mystery.
The site has new screenshots and information about the new races in regards to the two main factions in the game, Alliance and Horde.
