NYCC 2013: The Witcher Comes To Dark Horse Comics
Remember the other day when Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt Red announced an upcoming joint project to be revealed at New York Comic Con 2013? Turns out I was wrong: I had guessed a The Witcher series Compendium the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia or The Art of Remember Me, but a The Witcher comic book series has been announced, along with the following desscription:
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.
On the project, CD Projekt Red’s Head of Studio Adam Badowski had this to say:
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.
Dark Horse Comics’ Nick McWhorter, Director of Custom Programs, also commented:
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.
The Witcher #1 will be available in stores next year on March 19th, 2014. Check out the full covers below in the gallery. For more on the franchise, check out all of DualShockers’ The Witcher news.
