Toss A Comic to Your Witcher, Oh Dark Horse Of Plenty

Dark Horse Comics has grabbed Bartosz Sztybor from Boom Studio's Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Sirens and teamed him with Zarathustra's Amad Mir for a new Witcher comic book, Fading Memories, kicking off in June. Though rather than the novels or the TV series, Witcher: Fading Memories is set in the game universe, and created with game publisher CD Projekt Red to follows the further adventures of Geralt of Rivia…

Geralt has become impoverished and dejected since monster threats have seemingly vanished. Times have always been hard for Witchers—but without continual work, his situation has worsened. As Geralt explores new possibilities for his life path, he receives a request from the Mayor of Towitz, a small town where children are being kidnapped by Foglets…but something feels off about this new threat.

The Witcher: Fading Memories #1 (of 4) goes on sale June 17th. And people can catch up on The Witcher comics published so far with The Witcher Omnibus…
