Dark Horse and CD Projekt RED teased a partnership a few months ago that would see the game developer’s highly successful Witcher series headed to the inked pages of the long standing comic book company. Today that has been confirmed, and two pieces of art from the first issue of the Witcher have been released.
Paul Tobin, the Eisner Award-winning writer of Bandette, will be penning the series with Joe Querio providing the art, and Dave Johnson on the covers. The comic will continue to follow the tale of Geralt of Rivia, the main protagonist from the video game series. The narrative of the first run of issues is summarized as follows:
“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.”
#1 is set to hit comic shops everywhere on March 19, 2014. Don’t forget to get your first preview of its cover art after the break.
