NYCC 2013: Dark Horse To Publish Critically Acclaimed RPG – The Witcher!
Dark Horse Comics proudly announces its next hit video game tie-in series, The Witcher, based on the critically acclaimed games by CD Projekt RED.
From Paul Tobin, the Eisner Award–winning writer of Bandette, with art by Joe Querio and covers by Dave Johnson, comes a riveting comic based on The Witcher, a series of dark fantasy RPGs with a character-driven, nonlinear story set in a gritty living world and inspired by a series of extremely popular novels that have been translated into nineteen languages. The comic series introduces a new adventure featuring Geralt of Rivia—a witcher, one of the few remaining monster hunters.
Traveling 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, a place of endless rooms where horror waits around every corner. Geralt will have to use all his witcher prowess to solve the manor’s mystery and survive.
With the two Witcher games already available, fans can get to know Geralt even before the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2014 on PC, Play Station4, and Xbox One. The Witcher games have collectively earned over 270 awards and sold more than five million copies worldwide.
The Witcher #1 will be available for purchase on March 19, 2014, in comic shops everywhere!
