If you head to your local comic book store, or fire up your favorite reading app, I recommend taking a look at the first issue of The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame, a new limited series by Dark Horse that launched today. The story is set in CD Projekt’s video game adaptation of The Witcher, and once again focuses on the exploits of Geralt, who is tasked to solve a mystery for an old acquaintance.
This four-part story kicks off with a 32-page first issue written by Aleksandra Motyka with art by Marianna Strychowska. Don’t worry, Geralt looks nothing like Henry Cavill in this series. This isn’t Dark Horse’s first time creating new stories for this license. Writer Paul Tobin penned a handful of stories, including House of Glass, Fox Children, and Killing Monsters. You can read Tobin’s work in a collection that released in October.
Geralt has had a busy year, guesting in Bandai Namco’s Soulcalibur VI a few months ago and making an appearance in Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World early in 2019.
