CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse Comics are joining forces to bring you a new comic based on The Witcher, a series of dark fantasy RPGs with a character-driven, non-linear story set in a gritty and living world.
Travelling near the edge of the Black Forest, in the land of the Angren, monster hunter Geralt meets a widowed man whose dead and murderous wife resides in an eerie mansion known as the House of Glass. With its endless rooms and horror around every corner, Geralt will have to use all his witcher prowess to solve the manor’s mystery and survive.
Inspired by extremely popular novels that already have given birth to great video games, The Witcher comic introduce a new adventure of Geralt of Rivia. Fans of the series have yet another opportunity to get to know Geralt before the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2014. The Witcher comic book series is being written by Eisner Award-winning writer and DC and Marvel Comics author Paul Tobin, with art by Joe Querio.
“We’re very happy to be working with Dark Horse Comics, which is one of the biggest and most interesting comic book publishing houses in the world. What makes it even more exciting is the fact that, for many of us, the Dark Horse logo has near legendary status, standing for classic characters such as Hellboy or Usagi Yojimbo. We’re very happy to be once again expanding The Witcher universe,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD Projekt RED.
Witcher #1 will be available for purchase beginning March 19, 2014.
