As expected, CD Projekt RED and Dark Horse Comics have announced a new comic book series based on The Witcher. Inspired by the novels, the comic will tell a new adventure focusing on series hero Geralt of Rivia. In this new story, Geralt meets a widowed man whose dead wife lurks in the House of Glass. "Geralt will have to use all his witcher prowess to solve the manor's mystery and survive," the announcement detailed.
"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.
"We're very excited to work with CD Projekt RED on The Witcher. With the rich world they have created, and an enthralling central character like Geralt, we feel The Witcher is ripe to tell a compelling story through comics," said Nick McWhorter, Director of Custom Programs, Dark Horse Comics.
The first issue will go on sale on March 19, 2014. The comic will be written by Paul Tobin, with art by Joe Querio. You can see the full covers in our gallery.
