The Witcher Comic Series Incoming From Dark Horse

The Witcher's grim monster hunter is getting his own series of comics, in which he - surprise - hunts monsters.

CD Projekt, publisher of The Witcher series, hinted earlier this month that something was going on between it and comic publishing giant Dark Horse Comics. This mystery project has now been officially revealed as a series of The Witcher comic books, starring the games' protagonist Geralt of Rivia on a new adventure. The Witcher was a successful series of novels before it broke into the video game scene, so in some ways this is a return to form for the franchise.

The Witcher comic series is set near the Black Forest, where Geralt meets a widowed man whose wife has returned as an undead monster. Geralt's investigation takes him to the House of Glass, a mysterious mansion filled with horrors. The series will be written by Paul Tobin (Bandette), with art from Joe Querio (Lobster Johnson, B.P.R.D.) and cover art by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets).

"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," says CD Projekt RED boss Adam Badowski. "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."

Witcher #1 will be hitting comic shop shelves on March 19, 2014.

Well I hope these turn out good, I can always go for more Witcher related material. Hopefully this is one of many adventures we could get to see too, be interesting to see where these stories take place chronologically. At first when I heard about this, I had a feeling it might be a bridging between Witcher 2 and 3 as there is a 6 month gap between games from what the initial trailer led on.

Instant sale.

The books by Sapkowski are quite good, I hope the comics are good too.

I'd imagine that the comics would cover the time in his life before the first Witcher game, and before he ever met Ciri, Yennefer or Triss for those few unaccounted for years he was purely a Witcher. Before he got pulled into the crazy stuff which is the subject of the books and games.
